Charlie Adam has told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast Show, which was broadcast on TalkSPORT on 10th November, that he’s hearing that Glasgow Rangers are struggling to agree a compensation package with Aberdeen for Derek McInnes.

Rangers want McInnes to take over at Ibrox, as they search for Pedro Caixinha’s replacement.

The Scottish Sun had suggested that Rangers would reach a deal with Aberdeen this week, as they were willing to pay compensation to land McInnes.

However, Adam has said that Rangers are struggling to finance a deal for McInnes, and he has urged the board at Ibrox to take action sooner rather than later.

“I’m hearing that McInnes is close, but compensation is an issue,” Adam said.

“But they have to make a statement. They have the perfect time over the international break to sort it out. The more the dilly and dally over it, I’m not sure what will happen. I think it will come down to finances.

“The board need to make an appointment. It’s getting embarrassing.”

Rangers sacked Caixinha last month, but have been unable to appoint his successor yet.

Graeme Murty has been left in temporary charge over recent weeks, and he has done an impressive job.

Rangers have won their first two matches after Caixinha’s dismissal, which has brought some optimism back to Ibrox.

Rangers are next in action in two weekends’ time, when they take on Hamilton in Scottish Premiership action.
