Former Rangers midfielder Charlie Adam thinks that current Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes is the man to be the next Rangers manager.

The Stoke man feels that McInnes knows the Scottish Premiership far better than former Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha did and that he can’t take Aberdeen any further.

Speaking on Sky Sports’ The Debate, Adam said “He’s took Aberdeen as far as he can.

“He would be an excellent appointment.

“Caixinha was an expensive gamble. Derek knows the league and the players.

“He would be a good appointment.”

Speculation has been relentless regarding McInnes and the vacant manager’s position at Ibrox but as yet no contact has been made between Rangers and Aberdeen.

McInnes has taken Aberdeen to the runners-up spot in the last three seasons of the Scottish Premiership and won their first trophy in twenty years with a league cup win in 2014.

He also played for Rangers between 1995 and 2000, winning a host of trophies in the process.

Rangers youth team coach Graeme Murty has taken charge of Rangers for the last two games, earning victories against both Hearts and Partick Thistle.

With the international break taking place Rangers have another week to appoint a new manager before their next Scottish Premiership fixture at home to Hamilton on November the 18th.
