Boyd 'shocked' after McInnes snub, claims Rangers tried to agree one detail with Aberdeen
Kris Boyd has commented on Derek McInnes staying at Aberdeen after being certain that the manager was on his way to Rangers.
While talking to BBC Sportsound, the former Gers striker shared that he was as “shocked as anyone” and still doesn’t know the ins and outs of what happened.
“Rangers tried to agree compensation with Aberdeen,” Boyd revealed.
“That was refused, so we don’t know if Derek was able to speak to Rangers or not.”
Boyd went on to say that “99.9%” of Scotland was certain that McInnes was going to be the next Rangers boss.
The Aberdeen manager has been the bookies favourite for the manager’s job on and off since Pedro Caixinha departed the club in October.

However, the manager is going to stay at the Dons and this has now led to caretaker manager Graeme Murty being named as the new bookies favourite.
The caretaker manager has won four of his six games since taking over from Caixinha and this includes two victories in a row over Aberdeen.
The victories have seen the Light Blues leapfrog the Dons in the table and sit second in the Scottish Premiership.
Rangers are next in action on Saturday when they play Ross County as they aim to record four wins in a row.
Ahead of meeting the Gers, Ross County have 15 less points and sit second bottom.
