Rangers may have made it harder for them to land McInnes by letting this saga drag out for so long and could have shot themselves in the foot by doing so. The Gers are by no means made of money and a fee of over £1million for McInnes is probably going to be more than they had hoped to pay. The best solution for Rangers is for McInnes to resign from Pittodrie, but due to his previous show of loyalty last summer, that may not be the case. McInnes was on the verge of becoming the Sunderland manager before he decided to instead sign a new deal at Aberdeen. He seems like he dodged a huge bullet with the way the Black Cats have played since.
In other Rangers news, Celtic have suddenly become a key part in the Gers’ bid to appoint McInnes.
