Speaking to the Aberdeen Press & Journal, Calderwood gave his view on the dilemma facing McInnes.

“He has been a brilliant Aberdeen manager and I know he loves it there.

“It is going to be a very difficult one for him if Rangers decide he is the man they want.

“They have to ask the question first before he has to make that decision.

“I think he will be completely torn as Aberdeen have done a lot for him.”

The likes of Alan Pardew, Michel Preud’homme and former Rangers boss Alex McLeish have been mentioned in reports for the Ibrox job, but it seems that McInnes is the man Rangers want.

It is rumoured that Rangers will approach Aberdeen for talks with McInnes this week.
