Derek McInnes Officially Rules Out Taking the Scotland Job

Derek McInnes has officially ruled out taking the Scotland job.

The Aberdeen manager has been heavily linked with the vacant Tartan Army role over the last two days.

It was reported that McInnes, Steve Clarke and Scot Gemmill were the frontrunners to replace Alex McLeish on a permanent basis – with an appointment expected to be made in the coming week.

But you can rule McInnes out of that now after the Dons boss spoke to the media this afternoon.

Ahead of Aberdeen’s final Premiership game of the season against Hibs on Sunday, McInnes responded to the Scotland speculation:

That doesn’t sound like a man on the verge of becoming Scotland manager.

Clarke is the favourite to take the job and will manage Killie against Rangers on Sunday in what could be his final game with the Rugby Park outfit.

But he won’t be in the dugout for the game after being handed an immediate two-game ban by the SFA for comments he made about referee Steven McLean last month.
