Derek McInnes "very happy" at Aberdeen amid Rangers job speculation

Derek McInnes insists that he is "very happy" at Aberdeen amid speculation linking him with the vacant manager's job at Rangers.

Derek McInnes has claimed that he is "very happy" at Aberdeen amid speculation linking him with the vacant manager's job at Rangers.

The Glasgow giants are currently searching for someone new to take the reins of the first team after Pedro Caixinha was dismissed on Thursday.

However McInnes, who had a five-year playing spell at Ibrox, has insisted that he is happy at Pittodrie.

"I've never been drawn on any speculation in the past, and I won't change that now. I've been linked with different things in my time here, and nothing has transpired," the 46-year-old told reporters.

"I signed a contract this summer and I'm very happy being here, as I've stated often enough. I'm not going to get drawn on speculation. It's something I've got used to in the past.

"I've been supposedly linked with clubs a couple of times, and in particular Rangers. My job is here at Aberdeen and I'm happy here and nothing changes."

McInnes was linked with the Gers job earlier in the year following the departure of Mark Warburton.
