£800,000 for Derek McInnes would be sensational business for Rangers

The Aberdeen boss is being heavily linked with the vacant Rangers hot-seat at Ibrox.

Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha is seen prior to the Betfred League Cup Quarter Final at Firhill Stadium on September 19, 2017 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Pedro Caixinha was a total flop at Ibrox

The Gers hierarchy have made some questionable decisions over the past few years, none more so than their failed appointment of Pedro Caixinha earlier this year.

The Portuguese subsequently went on to spend close to £9 million on acquiring new so-called 'talent', with arguably only one of them - Alfredo Morelos, proving to be a success so far.

The Rangers board have a great opportunity to make amends for their previous errors, however, by appointing Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes as manager, and with the Daily record reporting that it would cost the Glasgow giants just £800,000 in compensation, it could be the best piece of business that they have done in a long time.

The 46-year-old has worked wonders during his time in charge at Pittodrie, guiding his side to one third placed finish and three second placed finishes since his appointment as manager of the Dons in 2013.

With the Ibrox outfit currently so far adrift of Celtic, in terms of both quality and league position, McInnes possesses all of the attributes required to help return them to past glories - none more so than his exceptional man-management skills.

Rangers are a team totally bereft on any kind of balance, unity or functionality at present, and the Aberdeen man would surely rectify all of those problems, should he be tempted into a switch to Glasgow.

And the Gers hierarchy should not hesitate in bringing McInnes to Ibrox, if they truly want their club to return to greatness.
