Derek McInnes: Set to be offered a new deal by Aberdeen

McInnes, who has just over a year to run on his current contract, has guided Aberdeen to the League Cup final, the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup and also second place in the Scottish Premiership.

Aberdeen chairman Stewart Milne is now ready to offer McInnes a bumper new deal to secure the manager's long-term future and ward off any potential suitors.

"I'm very conscious of the reputation Derek has and how it is growing," Milne told the Sunday Mail. "We'll need to work hard to make sure Derek stays here for a substantial period of time.

"I don't think Derek wants to be viewed as a one-year success.

"He wants to take Aberdeen back to the top of the Scottish game and have a regular presence in Europe.

"Derek has convinced players to re-sign and make a commitment. I think Derek's approach is the same and he has to take the lead and make the same commitment. We're confident he is committed."

Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
