Derek McInnes has revealed that Rangers have not been in contact with Aberdeen about approaching him to be the new boss at Ibrox, but refused to rule himself out of the job.

The Aberdeen manager has been odds-on favourite to be the next Rangers boss since Pedro Caixinha was sacked last month.

As yet though nothing has happened and McInnes is still in charge at Ibrox.

Talking to BBC Sport, McInnes got frustrated when asked about the role.

“I’m not going to comment or react to any speculation.

“There’s been a lot of comment,” McInnes said. “Nobody from Aberdeen is going to add to that. My job is the Aberdeen manager and I’m here to talk about Aberdeen.

“There’s been no contact from any club, which therefore means it’s speculation.”

Rangers have in the meantime appointed Graeme Murty as caretaker boss following the departure of Pedro Caixinha.

Murty has a 100% record in charge so far, with a 3-1 win over Hearts followed by a 3-0 win over Partick Thistle.

He will be looking to make it three wins out of three when Rangers play Hamilton at Ibrox this weekend.

Aberdeen are at home to Motherwell this weekend, with the Pittodrie side currently three points ahead of their rivals from Ibrox.
