McInnes set to snub Rangers, says Milne


By Gavin McCafferty

Derek McInnes has told Aberdeen he is going nowhere, according to Dons chairman Stewart Milne.

The Aberdeen manager has been among the favourites to take over at Rangers since Pedro Caixinha was sacked almost a month ago, but the Ibrox club have made little progress in securing a replacement.

The former West Brom captain has also been linked with a return to The Hawthorns since Tony Pulis was sacked on Monday, but Milne revealed he had given a firm commitment during a regular meeting with the chairman yesterday.

"Derek made his position very clear to me," said Milne.

"He has no intentions of going anywhere. He loves this club, he knows he's loved, he knows he is respected by everyone at the club, by the fans."

McInnes signed a new three-year contract in the summer along with assistant Tony Docherty after rejecting an offer from Sunderland.

Milne added: "He firmly believes he has unfinished business here. He has always said to me that he didn't want to leave this club with just one trophy in the boardroom."
