Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes will hold talks with chairman Stewart Milne after an approach from Rangers was rejected on Tuesday, according to a report.
BBC Sport claims on their website that McInnes, 46, will seek discussions with the Pittodrie chief after a £1million compensation offer was kicked into touch by the Dons as the Gers looking for permission to speak to the Scot and his assistant Tony Docherty.
It is understood that McInnes is eager to listen to what Rangers are keen to offer him and is now seeking a resolution.
On Tuesday, there was finally a major development in the Light Blues’ search for a new manager as they made a formal approach for McInnes that was confirmed on Aberdeen’s official website.
Rangers have been without a manager for six weeks after sacking Pedro Caixinha in October and failed to make any significant progress in finding a success until this week.
Football Insider Verdict
McInnes has not been happy with the speculation surrounding his career at Pittodrie but now it does seem that he would like to move to Rangers. The former Bristol City and St Johnstone manager was seething after seeing his side lose to the Gers at the weekend but has failed to make it clear that he is not interested in the job. Aberdeen chairman Milne now has a really tough decision because he may risk the wrath of McInnes and Docherty by not allowing them to leave and in turn they may resign. That action would see McInnes’ wondrous spell at Pittodrie end on a sour note, and no one wants that.
