Glasgow Rangers have been linked with a move for Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes, but one of his current players has urged him to stay put.

Aberdeen defender Andy Considine has urged Derek McInnes to reject any approach that may come from Rangers regarding the vacant manager's post at Ibrox, The Scottish Sun reports.

Following Mark Warburton's departure, several names have been touted as potential replacements for the Englishman including the current Dons boss McInnes.

But Considine - who was also reportedly on the Gers' radar before signing a new deal at Pittodrie recently (via The Scottish Sun) - has suggested that staying exactly where he is now is the wise decision given the clubs' respective positions.

"Is Aberdeen a better proposition than Rangers right now? I’d definitely say so with what is happening at Rangers," he said, as reported by The Scottish Sun.

"I can’t see him going anywhere. He seems very content here, very happy here.

"I think in his head there’s still a lot more to do here. I feel he’d maybe love to win a few more trophies at this club."

It would certainly be understandable if McInnes decided to stay put given what he has achieved with Aberdeen. He will also surely have a very good idea about what could be achieved there in the future.

Therefore, a move to Rangers would arguably be much more of a gamble as he may only have an outsider's perspective on what conditions Warburton had to work in, and so, he may only get a true idea of how long it could take for Rangers to put pressure on Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership if he ends up taking the role.
