Kris Boyd: If Rangers can overcome one hurdle, this is who they will appoint in charge

Kris Boyd has claimed that if Rangers can agree compensation with Aberdeen for manager Derek McInnes then the 46-year-old will replace Pedro Caixinha in the Ibrox hotseat.

According to the Daily Record, the Gers will make an approach for the Dons boss this week as they bring their search for Caixinha’s replacement to an end.

McInnes is the bookies’ favourite to take the reins at Ibrox and would join the Gers after they replaced Aberdeen in second in the Scottish Premiership with back-to-back wins over the Reds.

Boyd believes that once Rangers overcome the hurdle of a reported £1million fee, then McInnes will be appointed as the next Gers boss.

“If Aberdeen agree compensation with Rangers, Derek McInnes will be the manager of Rangers Football Club,” Boyd told BBC Radio Scotland, as quoted by The Herald.

“Everybody’s got a price on them, everybody.

“He won’t come cheap, we know that. It was the exact same with Sunderland.”

Caixinha was sacked on October 26th with Under-20′ head coach Graeme Murty taking interim charge of the first-team.

Murty has led the Gers in six games – winning four and losing two – after being handed the reins for the second time this year.

Two ins over Aberdeen in the last week have propelled the Gers from fourth to second in the Scottish Premiership with the Light Blues trailing leaders Celtic by seven points after playing one game more.

The 54-times Scottish champions face Ross County at Ibrox on Saturday afternoon in the Scottish Premiership before a trip to Easter Road to face Neil Lennon’s Hibs in midweek.
