Derek McInnes: Set to get Aberdeen job

It is understood the former St Johnstone and Bristol City manager could be confirmed as the Dons' boss as early as Monday morning.

Current boss Craig Brown announced last Monday that he was retiring from management and would step aside immediately if the club found an instant successor.

Aberdeen reportedly had a move for Ross County manager Derek Adams rebuffed before agreeing a deal with McInnes - the details of which are set to be finalised.

McInnes led St Johnstone to promotion in his first full season before establishing them as a comfortable Clydesdale Bank Premier League club.

But he lasted just 14 months at Ashton Gate, taking the npower Championship club to safety in his first season but paying the price for their continuing struggles.

The former Morton, Rangers, West Brom and Dundee United midfielder was sacked in January after a 4-0 defeat by Leicester sent City to the bottom of the table.

The 41-year-old's first task at Pittodrie will be to try to earn the Dons a top-six spot.

Aberdeen sit in ninth place in the SPL and have won just once in 11 games in 2013, but they are only two points off the top half of the table with games against Hearts at home and Dundee United at Tannadice to come before the split.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
