Derek McInnes has turned the spotlight towards Sevco after the campaign to take him to Ibrox.

Last week Aberdeen grew tired of the speculation and questioning that their manager was about to leave for a club on the brink of administration.

While Sevco have issued one brief statement since sacking Pedro Caixinha, McInnes has been regularly grilled about rumours that he was about to head for Ibrox.

Before and after every Dons match the vacancy at Ibrox has dominated the questioning with the former Rangers (IL) midfielder turning the tables.

Ahead of the 3-1 win at Kilmarnock McInnes said: “I think that it’s wrong for us to be continually speaking about another club’s situation. If people want to ask me about it I think that they should get themselves down to that club and start asking questions there.

Stop asking people at Aberdeen, the manager and players about speculation. For me I’m here now to speak about Kilmarnock, I’m expecting now a question about Kilmarnock, maybe even on Kris Boyd. Anybody, just something on the game.”

Yesterday’s win at Kilmarnock put Aberdeen six points ahead of fourth placed Sevco ahead of the double header against Graham Murty’s side.

Back-to-back defeats from Hamilton and Dundee have killed off the notion that the former Reading man could take over until the end of the season.

‘Ibrox insiders’ are still claiming that McInnes is their preferred choice as manager but with every passing game and defeat their position becomes more desperate and the the managerial vacancy less appealing.
