An update on the compensation situation involving Scottish professional football manager has surfaced in the Rangers’ pursuit to bring the manager back to Ibrox…

According to a report by 90mins on October 3rd, Rangers would not face financial constraints if they decided to reappoint Derek McInnes, despite his current position as Kilmarnock boss. McInnes is highly regarded within the Rangers organization, and it appears that the compensation fee required to terminate his contract with Kilmarnock is manageable for the club.

While Graham Potter, the former Chelsea manager, has ruled out the possibility of joining Rangers, the club is also exploring alternative options. These include considering Pascal Jansen, the head coach of AZ Alkmaar, and Kevin Muscat, who currently manages Yokohama F. Marinos and has a history with Ibrox.

Rangers have invested significantly in player acquisitions influenced by Michael Beale, making them hesitant to spend additional resources on resolving McInnes’s departure. As they actively search for McInnes’s replacement, Steven Davis has taken on interim responsibilities. Potter may prefer a less pressured role for his next position, given the potentially high-pressure environment in Glasgow.

Pascal Jansen is a potential candidate, as he is reportedly open to discussing the position with the club, although complications may arise regarding his compensation package.

Derek McInnes, while primarily a squad player during his playing days at Rangers, possesses valuable experience from his five-year tenure at Ibrox, which acquainted him with the expectations of the fanbase and the associated pressures.

Kilmarnock has faced a challenging start to the league season, with their sole victory coming against Rangers on the opening day. Nonetheless, McInnes has a track record of knowing how to defeat Celtic, as evidenced by Kilmarnock’s success against the Hoops in the League Cup.

In terms of both financial feasibility and experience, McInnes appears to be a sensible option for Rangers. However, a decision on the matter is imminent and cannot be delayed.
