Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes might’ve been accidentally named Rangers manager in Livingston’s programme last night, but Gers fans will be glad he wasn’t actually named manager back in December 2017.
The former Rangers midfielder famously turned the Ibrox job down before Steven Gerrard took the reins.
The Pittodrie boss appears to have missed his chance to take over at Ibrox – something he may well live to regret – but Rangers fans had a chuckle at the Livingston misprint.
Manager Derek McInnes?
Thankfully a printing error. Though pretty incredible to confuse Steven Gerrard with Derek McInnes 🤷🏻♂️ pic.twitter.com/tprIRCPJXH

Kudos to McInnes for getting us through to the semis and putting Dolly out all in one night. pic.twitter.com/tnHw8hxyh9

It’s hard to believe that the designers working for the Lions could get this one so wrong that they put McInnes in instead of arguably the most famous sportsperson working in the country.
It makes you think that someone might well be on the wind-up at the Tony Macaroni.
Nonetheless, the Aberdeen manager’s side crashed out of the Betfred Cup after conceding a last-minute Hearts equaliser to drag the scoreline to 2-2 and eventually be beaten on penalties.
The resultant reaction of Aberdeen fans suggests that Rangers may well have got lucky when McInnes turned down the offer to become Gers boss.
Do I want McInnes out because we lost on pens to Hahahahearts? No. I want him out for the shite he's been serving us for the last year. He's done, best we move on quickly rather than drawing it out.

RIP McInnes and FairPlay to the absolute fuds that clapped the team off.
I hope your next shite is a hedgehog

Well Done to Derek McInnes for getting Rangers into the semi final and getting Aberdeen put out on the same night 👏🏻

Why am I seeing Mcinnes out trending. Has he lost again?

As an Aberdeen supporter the last thing I want to hear is Derek McInnes telling us that our best chance of silverware is a Cup win. Inside or heads we may agree but it is something that I do not want our manager to spout to the press…#justsaying pic.twitter.com/UmjdmKaJX2

Lose the shootout – McInnes out
Win the shootout – McInnes out

The Aberdeen fans are not happy with McInnes and haven’t been for a while.
McInnes has been at Pittodrie for six years since taking over in 2013 and his side travels to Ibrox this weekend for a tantalising match with Rangers.
