Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes’ chances of becoming Rangers manager have taken something of a dent if the latest odds are anything to go by, with the former 1/7 odds-on favourite slipping back quite some distance to 4-9.
The ex-Rangers player remains the favourite, but the likelihood of it taking place is starting to look more distant.
The regular question being asked by fans about McInnes is if the ex-St Johnstone boss was likely to be Rangers’ new manager, why, over two weeks on from the vacancy opening, have Rangers’ board not even apparently opened discussions with him?
Meanwhile recently-confirmed second runner Giovanni Van Bronckhorst’s odds have shortened again, with a tempting 11/2 now on the Feyenoord boss taking the reins at Ibrox.
Real doubts now exist about McInnes and whether the Dons’ chief was ever in the running for new manager at all – many have argued he has been a media-driven favourite, with the bookies and the press being the ones driving the story, while Rangers and our fans have never really cheerled for his appointment.
In an article later today, Ibrox Noise takes you through our three preferences for the appointment.
You will need to tune in to see if McInnes is one of them.
