Derek McInnes looks to have ruled himself out of the vacant Scotland managers job, by commenting at the lunchtime press conference:
? Derek – I see myself as a club manager at this stage of my career and I would like to the Scotland manager at some point but right now, I would miss the day to day involvement of being a club manager.
Aberdeen vice-chairman Dave Cormack said on Wednesday that McInnes had told him he would stay and that the club would talk to him about a new contract, with his deal due to expire next summer.
The Pittodrie club, who have finished second in the Scottish Premiership in the past four seasons, will be guaranteed a Europa League place if they better Kilmarnock’s result against Rangers when they visit Hibernian on Sunday.
