It might finally have dawned on Rangers that Derek McInnes is the best candidate to take over from Pedro Caixinha.
I don’t want him to go to Ibrox because he has done a brilliant job for Aberdeen.
But before Caixinha got the job I said McInnes was the best option, and my opinion hasn’t changed.
Rangers need a manager who knows them and knows the league, has an affiliation with the club, and is a good coach.
I don’t think it is complicated to join those dots and come up with McInnes.
He knows how to handle that speculation. When you are doing well at Aberdeen then you are going to be linked with other jobs.
Rangers are a big club and if they do approach Aberdeen, the decision is for McInnes to make about whether he thinks the structure is right for him to be able to do a good job there.
I think the Gers have made so many bad moves in recent years even before they got back into the Premiership under different managers.
There is a lot of people at the top who have made bad decisions.
Even under the present board things have been staring them in the face and the haven’t gone for it.
Surely on the back of two non-Scottish managers, they will make a decision based on football realism, and recognise there’s a manager who has taken Aberdeen to second place in the league behind Celtic.
From everything I have heard, it seems like Rangers will approach Aberdeen, so then it is just down to McInnes.
On Saturday their striker Kenny Miller returned to the fold for Rangers and scored two goals to help them beat Hearts at Murrayfield.
I think it has been proven that Caixinha wasn’t the right man for the job and the return of Miller further proves that.
A modern manager shouldn’t be treating a player like that and making them train with the youngsters.
It also proves that Miller still has a lot to offer.
But let’s hope the next manager benefiting from his goals is not McInnes.
