Derek McInnes will stay at Aberdeen, according to Sky sources

Derek McInnes will continue as Aberdeen manager and will not be joining Rangers, the club have confirmed.

In an official club statement, chairman Stewart Milne said: "As everyone is aware, Rangers made an approach on Tuesday evening and they were refused permission to speak with Derek.

"I spoke with Derek who felt it was a major thing to be considered for the managerial position at a club such as Rangers and we agreed that he could have some time to think about the approach and talk it through with his family.

Highlights of Aberdeen v Rangers in the Scottish Premiership

"Over the past 48 hours, I have been in constant dialogue with Derek and having weighed up the opportunity, he has taken the decision to remain as Aberdeen FC manager. Derek has also been maintaining close contact with Paul Sheerin ahead of tomorrow's game at Dundee.

"Derek appreciates all that he has at this club and feels he wants to keep driving the club forward. This is where he wants to be and he feels he very much has unfinished business with Aberdeen FC.

McInnes says he has had a lot to consider in the last 48 hours

"I personally am delighted that Derek has decided to remain with the club and everyone looks forward to putting the speculation of the past few weeks behind us and concentrating on matters on the park starting at Dens tomorrow evening."

McInnes added: "I've had a lot to consider over the last couple of days and I appreciate it's been a testing time for everyone, including my family, and I'm pleased to be now totally focusing on purely on on-the-field matters."

Rangers sacked Pedro Caixinha in October

During his time at the club, McInnes has won the League Cup in 2014, the Dons' first major honour for 19 years. Aberdeen also reached the final of both cups last season, and were beaten in the semi-final of the Scottish Cup in 2014 and League Cup in 2015.

Craig Overton ready to fight fire with fire after bruising Ashes debut

One look at the field was all Craig Overton needed to know what was coming. Out of the corner of his left eye, Australian fielders were beginning to muster on the on-side: fine leg, short leg, leg gully. Forty yards away, Pat Cummins was standing malevolently at the end of his run. Meanwhile, umpire Aleem Dar had news for him: “Right arm round the wicket.” Welcome to Test cricket, son.
