New Rangers manager: Derek McInnes appointment could be announced TODAY

Derek Mc Innes makes a point to his team during Aberdeen's home defeat by Rangers on Sunday

Chris Sutton slammed Rangers on Twitter for "another shambolic situation" after Derek McInnes rejected the chance to become their new manager in a sensational snub on Thursday.

But in a statement, the Dons said: 'Following weeks of speculation, Aberdeen Football Club can confirm that the management team of Derek McInnes and Tony Docherty will be remaining at Pittodrie'.

Derek McInnes appeared to be on the brink of becoming Rangers' 16th permanent manager last night following emergency talks with Stewart Milne, the Aberdeen chairman, after missing training with the Pittodrie club.

"Either way - whether the manager will be here or won't - hopefully by the close of play today there will be a decision on that". Sources at the club insist finances played no part in McInnes' decision, claiming he would have been given a "significantly" bigger salary and player recruitment budget than he has at Aberdeen.

Graeme Murty has been in caretaker charge at Ibrox since former boss Caixinha was given his marching orders after only seven months as manager.

McInnes will be in the technical area at Dens Park this evening as Aberdeen look to bounce back from the consecutive defeats they suffered against Rangers in their previous two games at the height of the speculation over his future.

He started off his managerial career at St Johnstone before moving south of the border for a failed spell at Bristol City. This is where he wants to be and he feels he very much has unfinished business with Aberdeen FC.

"I've spoken to Derek about the game tomorrow and not about anything else".
