Derek McInnes Says There is ‘Absolutely Nothing’ in Reports Linking Him to Stoke

Derek McInnes Says There is ‘Absolutely Nothing’ in Reports Linking Him to Stoke

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes has distanced himself from reports linking him with a move to Stoke City, saying there’s ‘absolutely nothing’ in it.

As we’ve told you previously, McInnes has endured something of a torrid time this season, with the 6-0 defeat to Rangers and 4-0 defeat at home to Celtic enraging fans – and leading to a campaign from some Aberdeen fans on social media to have McInnes sacked.

And, according to the Daily Record, English Championship strugglers Stoke are keen on tempting McInnes away from Pittodrie, following their sacking of Nathan Jones last month.

However, when he faced the media this afternoon, the Dons manager certainly didn’t seem too interested at all in the Potters’ vacancy, as he explained via the BBC: “I know nothing about it, I wasn’t even aware of it until I got told this morning.

“There is absolutely nothing in that. I’ve got enough going on here to deal with. We are looking to get our third win in a row and hopefully go into the international break feeling better about ourselves.’

“I think there is a lot to be said for stability.

“I think in my time here, Hibs are now looking for their sixth manager, and I think Hearts are looking for their fifth.

“That is a lot of turnaround, a lot of changes for any club, and obviously we have the other side of it, with a bit more stability.

“I do think that we have worked pretty consistently and steady as we go along since we first came in.”

Of course, McInnes has had moments of great highs during his six-and-a-half years at Aberdeen, but do you think he might be heading towards the end of his tenure?

And would McInnes be a good fit for a club like Stoke City?
