Celtic fans react on Twitter to major development in Rangers manager search

Rangers have launched a bid to appoint Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes on Tuesday and despite their side being in Champions League action, it was a huge talking point among Celtic fans on Twitter.

The Dons refused permission in a statement released on their club website for Rangers to speak with McInnes over a move to Ibrox almost six weeks after sacking manager Pedro Caixinha.

Graeme Murty has been in interim charge but with a league double-header against the Dons out of the way, Rangers have moved for their main target.

As their side were going head-to-head with Anderlecht in the Champions League with continued European football in the new year at stake, Celtic fans were on Twitter discussing the major development in the Light Blues’s search for a new boss – with one suggesting there was something dodgy about how Aberdeen lined up at Ibrox on Wednesday night

Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

Rangers Under-20’s head coach Graeme Murty has been in charge of the Gers since Caixinha’s sacking and picked up back-to-back wins over McInnes in the last week.

Despite having their approach refused, it’s almost certain Rangers will approach the Dons again to speak with McInnes.

The Aberdeen manager is no stranger to Ibrox after spending five years with the Gers as a player between 1995 and 2000.
