Aberdeen midfielder Kari Arnason insists there is no crisis at the famous Pittodrie club.
Craig Brown's side have endured a slow start to the new SPL season having won just one of their nine league outings.
The Dons, who are yet to score away from home, are second from bottom in the table having garnered just six points.
Arnason knows a thing or two about a crisis having joined from Plymouth and he insists Aberdeen's predicament is nothing like that he suffered at Home Park.
Aberdeen slipped to a 1-0 loss to Motherwell over the weekend and the Iceland international knows everyone at the club must raise their game to improve their results.
"Aberdeen are nowhere near a crisis," explained Arnason. "I was at Plymouth and that is a real crisis.
"They are a club going into liquidation and we weren't getting wages paid.
"So that's a crisis. Here, it is just about getting on with it and putting points on the board. But while it hurts losing games, at Plymouth it was affecting your livelihood.
"At Aberdeen we need to sort it out. We're all still behind the manager, without question. The players have to find it within themselves to improve.
"All of us need to raise our game. Some people didn't turn up at Motherwell so we all need to raise the bar now."
