Former Celtic attacker Kris Commons has claimed that it is a “remarkable situation” that Derek McInnes could find himself in if he is announced as the next Rangers manager by next weekend.
The Daily Record has recently reported that the Light Blues will make an approach for McInnes after Sunday’s game between them and his Aberdeen side.
It is understood that the Glasgow giants are also looking to bring in the former Bristol City boss before their clash against Ross County next Sunday.
After that major development in Rangers’ hunt for a new manager, Commons claimed that it would be a dream move for McInnes to return to Ibrox as manager.
“For me, it will be his dream job to take charge of Rangers,” said the ex-Celtic player on Sky Sports Football ahead of Sunday’s game between the Gers and the Dons at Pittodrie, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
“For him to lead Aberdeen out now against the team he could be in charge of next week is quite a remarkable situation to be in.
“The players will have picked up on the rumours a few weeks ago.”
McInnes has been one of the leading names in the running to be the next Rangers manager ever since Pedro Caixinha was sacked over six weeks ago in October.
There has been little in way of developments in replacing the Portuguese manager, who has found a new job himself quicker than the Gers have replaced him as this week he was appointed in charge of Mexican giants Cruz Azul.
