Rangers fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to Derek McInnes deciding to snub the Ibrox managerial role and remain at Aberdeen.
According to a statement on Aberdeen’s official website, McInnes will remain at the Pittodrie Stadium and will not made the switch to Scottish Premiership rivals Rangers.
The Gers’ approach for the 46-year-old former midfielder earlier this week was turned down by the Dons.
Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to McInnes deciding to remain at Aberdeen, and so have Celtic supporters.
While Celtic fans seem to mock Rangers, the Gers’ supporters appear to be happy that they will not have McInnes as their new manager.
Rangers fans on Derek McInnes decision:
Am glad the McInnes story has been put to bed. Let’s go with Murty until the end of the season. If he gets us a 2nd place finish and closes the gap to Celtic from last year then give the man a 12 month rolling deal. He’s earned a shot here.— Mr Bulldops (@SirRickG) December 7, 2017

The only people I see tweeting about the mcinnes situation is celtic fans #notobsessedtho— Jamie Manson (@JamieManson90) December 7, 2017
Bit of a slap in the face for the board to receive a knock back from Mcinnes, but I have said from the start I genuinly don't believe he is the man for the job. Anyone who comes out and says he doesn't know how to beat Celtic isn't good enough for this club.— Rachael Brown x (@Rachybroon96) December 7, 2017
Quite happy McInnes chose to stay at the sheep. That decision along with comments earlier in the season about not being able to compete with Celtic shows he hadn't got what it takes to be our manager— Bear from the North (@Northernger) December 7, 2017
Clearly lack of ambition and awkward going back. Waste of time in the end.— Cairo (@Look_at_em123) December 7, 2017
Let's get this in perspective. McInnes has done nothing while we have rebuilt. Not challenged Celtic in the slightest. His team were outclassed and outplayed twice in 5 days. Murty is doing a great job. #WATP— Jim Dickson (@Newcoagain) December 7, 2017
Quite happy we’re not getting McInnes. Can’t challenge Celtic at Aberdeen— Sarah-Jane (@sarahjcampbell_) December 7, 2017
Celtic fans on Derek McInnes decision:
Surely no one is surprised. McInnes is staying at the second biggest club in Scotland and has turned down an absolute minnow. Not really a decision for him.— Stand Up For Celtic (@StandForCeltic) December 7, 2017

McInnes might as well come work for Celtic as he’s now hated by sevco and Aberdeen— Lee (@leegribbin7) December 7, 2017
I'd have thought some at Ibrox would be secretly relieved at McInnes' decision.— Celtic F1rst (@CelticF1rst) December 7, 2017
It's saved them the guts of £1m they don't have.
Sevco And Their Media Toadies Have Been Utterly Humiliated By Aberdeen. What A Shambles At Ibrox. - Why do Sevco always wait until I’m taking a day off? I owe Derek McInnes an apology. Or rather I owe him an explanation. I really did believe he’d been... https://t.co/CONvFkA7Ym— E-Celtic (@e_Celtic) December 7, 2017
Doesn't take a genius to work it out. Sevco is dysfunctional at boardroom level & financially in a bad place. McInnes probably didn't fancy working under a director of football either, & at the same time likes working for Milne, who gives him stability. No brainer.— Snoop Dogg CSC (@CelticRuleOK) December 7, 2017
Before that McInnes garbage, Sevco lost two games in a trot and were in meltdown. All sorted now thanks to Traynor. But, the writing’s on the wall and I bet he knows it.— Celtic (@Con_Shaunnery) December 7, 2017
Celtic are at the top of the Scottish Premiership table at the moment with 37 points from 15 matches.
Rangers are currently second in the standings with 30 points from 16 games, level on points with third-placed Aberdeen.
The Hoops seem set to win the league title this season, while the Gers and the Dons will be aiming to finish second.
