Chris Sutton delivers three-word verdict on Rangers statement about McInnes

Chris Sutton has taken to Twitter to give his thoughts on Rangers’ statement about their failure to appoint Derek McInnes as manager on Thursday.

The Light Blues announced on their official website that they had made an approach for Aberdeen manager McInnes but took the time to take a bit of a swipe at the 46-year-old by suggesting he wasn’t ready for the Ibrox hotseat.

Rangers have been widely ridiculed for their statement, but former Celtic striker Sutton appeared to show some restraint as he gave a short, snappy three-word verdict on the news.

“Interesting read indeed,” he said on his personal Twitter account, quoting the Gers’ statement.

Earlier in the day, Aberdeen announced that McInnes and his assistant Tony Docherty would be staying at Pittodrie after weeks of speculation that following Pedro Caixinha’s sacking at Rangers in late October.

Graeme Murty has been in caretaker charge of the Glasgow club since then, winning four of the six games in charge including two victories last week against Aberdeen.

The Under-20s boss will now take charge of first-team matters until at least the end of this year, it has been confirmed, meaning that the Light Blues’ hunt for Caixinha’s successor is far from over.

Rangers’ next fixture will be against Ross County on Saturday and while many expected it to be McInnes’ first game, it now seems that Murty will be at the helm once again to try and win three games in a row.
