Watch: Derek McInnes should NOT join Rangers now, says Celtic hero

Former Celtic star Charlie Nicholas says Derek McInnes should resist any temptation to move to Rangers during this season.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Nicholas said that McInnes should wait until the summer before swapping Aberdeen for Ibrox, where he will tonight lead his Dons side into battle against the Gers in their Scottish Premiership tie.

McInnes is ranked by some bookies as the odds-on favourite to take over as Rangers' next permanent manager but, while Nicholas questioned how long he can remain at Pittodrie, he urged the 46-year-old not to move on too quickly.

Nicholas said: "If you're Derek McInnes right now, I would say why would you go to Rangers? You've got a lot of rebuilding to do, their team's pretty average, (Aberdeen) are above them in the table.

"If I'm Derek McInnes, if I'm going to join Rangers, I'm not going to join now. I would wait until the summer before I would start negotiations."

McInnes took charge of Aberdeen in 2013 and has since led the club to Scottish League Cup success as well as three consecutive runners-up finishes in the Premiership. Last week, he insisted he is staying at Pittodrie.

"He's done a fabulous job at Aberdeen," said Nicholas. "He turned down Sunderland last year and he's proved to himself that it was probably the right decision for him. (But) how far can you take Aberdeen? I'm not being disrespectful to my old team, they're trying to build a new stadium which hopefully they will get past."

Nicholas also claimed that in an ideal world, Rangers should have approached former manager Alex McLeish to take over the role on a temporary basis after Caixinha's departure, although he concedes that Big Eck might not have agreed to a short-term deal:

"(Graeme) Murty (caretaker manager) has done OK but if I was Rangers beforehand, they needed Alex McLeish in to get the thing stabilised and keep it moving forward. The AGM is tomorrow and they're going to have a torrid time because (of) the finances and the manager aspect, the signings have been really poor, the scouting system will be under scrutiny."
