Top international boss shares who he thinks should be next Rangers manager
By John Reid
Former Rangers manager Dick Advocaat believes that Derek McInnes is the right man to become the next manager at Ibrox.
Advocaat, in Scotland for the Netherlands friendly against Scotland at Pittodrie on Thursday night, managed McInnes whilst the Aberdeen boss played for Rangers, and his opinion is that McInnes is the right man for the job.
Speaking to BBC Scotland, the man who worked at Ibrox between 1998 and 2001 said: “He did a great job at Aberdeen [and] he’s the right age.”
McInnes has been the favourite to take over at Ibrox since the departure of Pedro Caixinha last month, but as yet no talks have taken place between the Rangers board and their Aberdeen counterparts.
Graeme Murty has been in charge of Rangers for the last two league games and has lead them to two wins out of two, against Hearts and Partick Thistle.

McInnes has done a good job at Aberdeen, leading them to three runners-up finishes in a row in the Scottish Premiership, and taking them to their first trophy in 20 years.
Rangers are next in action against Hamilton at Ibrox on November the 18th, with Aberdeen at home against Motherwell on the same day as the battle for the Scottish Premiership continues.
