BBC pundit Steven Thompson believes that Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes should consider a move to Premier League side West Bromwich Albion over Rangers as they are a more “attractive” option.

The Baggies announced on Monday morning that Tony Pulis would be leaving after three years in charge of the club following a disappointing start to the campaign.

The Scottish Sun later reported that McInnes is one of the favourites to replace Pulis at the Hawthorns despite reports claiming that Rangers are interested in making him their man in charge.

The 46-year-old has enjoyed a successful managerial spell at Aberdeen, guiding the team to the Scottish Cup during the 2013-14 season.

Speaking to the Scottish Sun, BBC regular Thompson is convinced that McInnes should seriously contemplate testing himself in the English top-flight with West Brom over Rangers.

“So I’m pretty sure if that job came up and he was asked to become manager, he’d very seriously consider it,” he said.

“You’re managing in the Premier League.

“The state Rangers are in just now – no one really knows what the financial implications are when you take the job.

“I think West Brom might be more attractive right now.”

During his playing career, McInnes spent three seasons with West Brom where he helped them secure a place in the Premier League for the first time in the club’s history.

The Baggies currently find themselves in 17th position in the league table, just one point above the relegation zone.

Meanwhile, Rangers are only one point off a European place in the SPL whilst Aberdeen are currently in second place behind current champions Celtic.
