Aye apparently they went as far as discussing the team line up for the Ross County game. The compensation was agreed and DM was to meet the DOF to discuss transfer targets in January. We even had the good grace to wait till after the double header before making the approach official. I think DM will regret his decision. As i"ve said I'm delighted he turned down the job as I never thought he was the man for the job. I hope he does not get the chance again as if you are a real Rangers man you never ever turn down the chance imo. It is a pity the club did not release this story instead of the garbage they did come out with. Anyway we move on

He would have fitted in nicely in the current set up let's be honest. He knows the club and the league. He knows what he needs to win this league, and didn't think he would get any closer to it with us. Fair decision made by an honest man. However the chance to manage on the hallowed turf should be gone forever. You don't get the opportunity twice if you have turned it down. McInnes knows that and won't expect it again. He knows he has to make it work with Aberdeen now, which should make our board bring in a proven manager to see off the threat. We wait in hope.

I posted this a few times last week (kinda wish I hadn’t now) the deal was agreed in every way Inc compensation for Dons. It had pretty much all been sorted before the double header and contract was only thing needing signed. The players knew McInnes was coming before the first game. McInnes changing his mind pretty much with pen in hand shocked everyone inc Aberdeen who rumour had it were ready to make a move for Ross Jack. The board had not followed up any due diligence on 2nd or 3rd or any other options due to agreement and this lead to the piss poor statement being released.

Well now, if all the above is true how do all you "fans" that slated the board for everything except being Celtic fans feel about this?
It, s a funny old world.

I heard on Saturday that McInnes had spoken with DK prior to AGM and told him he was coming. Hence the reason the board seemed quite bullish about timeframes.
Apparently it was his wife who was against the goldfish bowl.

Also saying that rangers offered him less wages than what he is on at Aberdeen. It didn't even get to the stage we were allowed to talk to him so how was he offered less wages. Everyone just seems to do anything to bring us down so we get laughed at I've had enough of it.

Seeker, the board could not, and would never, be able to admit to this unless they had the explicit permission from the sheep to make such an approach - and I don't think they had that. It therefore could be construed as tapping up McInnes.

Nowhere in this 'report' does it say the board met with McInnes. The board certainly did not. All conversations were through intermediaries and as I posted last week one of them was a former Rangers player. Everything else is true, though - he left our club hanging out to dry whe his bottle crashed. Fitted nicely in the current set up? He will never have the guts, temperament, presence, authority, charisma or character to ever be a Rangers manager. Time to move on and look to the future under a proper Rangers manager when that appointment is made.

It sounds like the board have laid down their expectations he agreed thought about it and bottled it the irony is 2 trophy less seasons with the sheep finishing below us and he is out the door then where will he go

Dutycalls. That does make sense tbh. If the club was to issue a statement like that we would leave ourselves open to a law suit.
