Former Aberdeen man and current Bournemouth and Scotland winger Ryan Fraser is hopeful that Derek McInnes will turn down the opportunity to manage Rangers to stay with Aberdeen.
McInnes has been favourite to take over at Ibrox since Pedro Caixinha was sacked last month, but as yet there has reportedly been no contact between the clubs.
Speaking to the Aberdeen Evening Express, Fraser said “I don’t know what’s happening with Derek McInnes, I’ve been asking people but they won’t tell me.
“He’s got the Eddie Howe touch and has been doing well, we’ll see what happens. I don’t know if he’s going to go to Rangers, it will be interesting.
“I don’t want him to go, you wonder who is going to come in. Names would be thrown about for fun, but if he stays they will keep going up.”
Aberdeen return to league action this weekend as they take on Motherwell at Pittodrie.
They currently sit three points ahead of Rangers in the Scottish Premiership.
Graeme Murty has been in charge of Rangers for their two league games before the international break.
He has a 100% record as caretaker manager so far, and will be wanting to extend his run when Rangers play Hamilton at Ibrox this weekend.
