Rangers fans have destroyed Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes after his side’s performance against Celtic in Sunday’s Scottish Premiership clash – and they are unanimous in their relief the Dons boss turned down the opportunity to replace Pedro Caixinha at Ibrox.

McInnes was the Gers’ number one target to replace Caixinha before being rejected by the Dons manager leaving Graeme Murty to take the reins until the end of the season.

Rangers fans were delighted McInnes decided to stick with Aberdeen – with one fan saying he “can’t thank McInnes enough” for turning the Gers down.

Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

McInnes has lost his last 10 games against Celtic and lost three times to the Gers already this season with fans labelling the former Gers midfielder a “big game bottler.”

The Aberdeen boss has taken his side to succesive second-place finishes in the Scottish Premiership but look set to only manage third this season after the Gers turned their season around following Caixinha’s sacking.

McInnes joined the Dons in 2013 and led the Dons to their first final in 14 years when his side lifted the Scottish League Cup in 2014 before losing both domestic finals to Celtic last season.

The 46-year-old spent five years at Ibrox as a player between 1995 and 2000.
