Derek McInnes gives instant response to Rangers speculation after Aberdeen loss
Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has revealed that he is not happy with constantly being linked to the Rangers vacancy.
McInnes, 46, was approached by reporters after Sunday’s game at Pittodrie between the two sides to respond instantly after seeing his side suffer a 2-1 defeat to the 10-man Gers.
The Daily Record has reported that Rangers will make an approach for the former Bristol City boss on Sunday and will aim to appoint him in time for next weekend’s Premiership fixture with Ross County.
However the Aberdeen boss has made it clear that he won’t give anything away and is not happy with the entire situation after seeing his side slip from second in the Premiership standings.
“It’s not been great, the way it’s been handled and I’m not very happy about it,” he said on Sky Sports Football’s post-match coverage of the Scottish top-flight fixture on Sunday afternoon.
McInnes is the clear favourite with the bookmakers to replace Pedro Caixinha in the Ibrox hotseat.

Rangers sacked Caixinha over six weeks ago but have since charged back up the table under the caretaker charge of Graeme Murty.
Goals from Danny Wilson and Josh Windass ensured that the Glasgow side would take home three points from Pittodrie on Sunday to move up to second in the table, setting McInnes up to help the club win three games in a row if he takes charge in time for the Ross County game.
