Aberdeen manager Neil Warnock has been talking to the media before his side face Motherwell in the Scottish Premiership on Wednesday.

Here are the key points from his press conference:

  • Admits it has been “difficult” coming in during a busy fixture period while he gets to know the players.

  • He’d have liked to have been in the role earlier to get “some bodies in” as the squad lacks depth in some areas but says “we’ll have to find a way to win with what’s here now.”

  • Described the club's goal-scoring output as a “one-man band” due to Bojan Miovski’s form and is looking for goals from elsewhere.

  • When asked why he took the job, Warnock replied with “you are starting to sound a bit like my wife” and admitted while he enjoyed his spells away from football, he does miss the “dressing room banter” and “improving players”.

  • Will look at one or two little knocks ahead of tomorrow’s match.

  • Doesn’t expect Motherwell to have any hangover from their cup exit to Morton and says his own side were “poor in some areas” in their cup win over Bonnyrigg.
