No chance or we wouldn’t have approached Aberdeen on Tuesday.

07 Dec 2017 19:43:23
Nonsense. Why did they wait until after approaching Aberdeen then?

07 Dec 2017 19:52:13
He had my backing but Weve dodged a bullet as a real rangers man would not have knocked us back i'm for murty getting a chance to end of season

07 Dec 2017 20:37:24
the question now is who's next? My pick would be MacLeish till the end of the season then Gary Monk, currently at Middlesborough.

07 Dec 2017 20:59:23
I would give it to murty until the end of the season at this point. Then reassess

What kind of planning is that if you give it to Murty till the end of the season? What about potential targets? Who decides who we go for in January? How can you sign people on bosmans not knowing if the manager that signs them will be there when they finally move? That’s not the way to run any football club especially not Rangers. You either give him the job now full time or you get another full time manager in. This isn’t a trial and error job

Apparently, Walter warned dm off the job because of the financial situation. Didn't believe it at the time but seems legit now. If we were in any semi reasonable state mcinnes would've walked away from his contact at Pittodrie in a heartbeat.

I'm pretty surprised that DM never took the job or whatever stopped it from happening, but that statement the board put out is embarrassing! They approached Aberdeen to speak to him, he knocks it back and then the board basically say yeah he's not ready to manage a massive club like us. but Pedro Caixinha was?!

I really wanted DM in and if I had heard right Barry Ferguson in as no.3 because the would've made this squad realise what it takes and what it means to play for our club.

Can't think who else they will go for but I know it's coming into winter and the board better not be flying down to the shop and panic buying some mediocre ex-prem manager Just to look the part.

Their is a lot of work to be done aside from just getting a manager and I sincerely hope we are back on top before they get anywhere near 10 in a row

DM was not my 1st choice to be manager, but I am embarrassed by the statement our board issued last night. It is totally lacking in class and is not the Rangers way. PETTY and CLASSLESS.

08 Dec 2017 08:40:52
petty embarrassing tasteless? really? jeeze lads calm down the board said it the way it was and is they said that at the time they looked at the few who applied! no one suitable . so they decided to look at managers working . went for mcinnes turned it down . rangers say that the fully agree with him staying at aberdeen and know that whoever comes to manage our team must be able and willing to take on everything (a big risk) that comes with it (concomitant) . so if you want to read it a certain way that's up to you but i think as usual the press are just making a mountain out of a molehill once again. from the word go since pedro went they have tried and tried to make stuff up as to who the new manager might be . they got it wrong simple as and now all the are doing is searching through the crumbs that have been left after mcinnes turned us down! rile the rangers and aberdeen supports with crap as usual if the wasnt enough bad blood already they will make sure there is more!

Unless Rangers are incredibly naïve, good business sense dictates that they surely must have sounded McInnes out and received a positive response prior to going public? This would suggest McInnes has changed his mind and hung Rangers out to dry. No loss there then, he was never my preferred option and I believe Murty deserves to continue until the end of the season. This might just galvanize the team to give him a 110% every week. Re the Rangers Board and its lack of business nonce and credibility, not sure we can fix that quickly but a good start would be to get well rid of James Traynor - Walter Smith would have already kicked his arse all the way down Edmiston Drive if he was still our Manager. The man is both poison and inept.

" from the word go since pedro went they have tried and tried to make stuff up as to who the new manager might be . they got it wrong simple as. "

Seems to me they said the number 1 target was McInnes. To me they got it spot on. No one expected him to knock it back, though. Can't say I'm surprised by his decision, though. He's enjoying a good spell at Aberdeen with a three year contract. If he'd come to us he could be looking for a new job before the end of next year going on how we currently operate. Where would he end up? He would certainly be on less than he is on at Aberdeen at the moment. The guy made a decision about his future, similar to Billy Gilmour, except he chose not to chase the big bucks.

McInnes had verbally agreed to join and everything was sorted out, except the signature on contract. He changed his mind at the last minute and didn’t want to leave Aberdeen by resigning, if permission had been granted by Aberdeen he wouldn’t have had second thoughts on it. This has been one big **** up all round and I don’t think anyone comes out of it looking good. Rangers are back to square 1 in manager search and if Aberdeen don’t finish 2nd where does that leave McInnes? He’s knocked back Sunderland and Rangers only way Is Down.

Eldersliebear, your post hits every nail squarely on the head - that's exactly what happened. McInnes knew when and how the approach would be made, he had already indicated through intermediaries that he wanted to speak to Rangers (a close family member and a former player were involved), he then bottled it and left Rangers hanging out to dry. Bye bye McInnes, your moment has come and gone.
