Aberdeen fell to a heavy 3-0 Scottish Cup semi-final defeat against Motherwell at Hampden on Saturday – and Rangers fans were loving seeing Dons boss Derek McInnes fail after turning down the Ibrox manager’s job in December.

McInnes was approached by the Gers over a return to Ibrox, 18 years after leaving as a player, but decided to stick with Aberdeen instead of a move to Ibrox.

After his side’s collapse against the Steelmen at Hampden, Gers fans were delighted to see the Dons knocked out of the cup – with one fan saying the Light Blues “dodged a bullet” when McInnes decided to stay at Pittodrie.

Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

The Gers face bitter rivals Celtic in Sunday’s second semi-final to find out who will face Motherwell at Hampden in next month’s showpiece final.

A double from Curtis Main and a Ryan Bowman strike left the Dons shattered against Stephen Robinson’s Motherwell at Hampden and ended their hopes of lifting the Scottish Cup next month.

The Pittodrie side are still in a fight with the Light Blue for second place in the Scottish Premiership and the Gers will be hoping the crushing Hampden loss will put a huge dent in the Dons’ morale going into the final five league games of the season.

In other Rangers news, this Ibrox legend revealed he was gutted at the news of David Bates agreeing to join Hamburg.
