West Brom Want This Rangers Target As Their Next Manager: Is He The Right Choice?

West Bromwich Albion became the latest club to have parted ways with their manager. The Baggies relieved manager Tony Pulis from his duty following a miserable run of games in the Premier League this season. Competition has been pretty fierce these days as clubs have been engaged in a rigorous battle to have a large chunk of the telecast rights and the Premier League prize money.

On the back of a very successful last season, Pulis had hoped to recapture his Midas touch once again but he failed awfully as the Baggies looked far from impressive this term. However, with Pulis’ departure a new manager is due to arrive at the Hawthorns and according to reports, Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes is leading the race to become the next boss at the club.

McInnes is not the only person being linked to the club as the club hierarchy is considering a number of names. Michael O’Neill, Ronald Koeman and Slaven Bilic all are on the wish list but the Aberdeen boss is considerably ahead in the selection method.

The former Baggies captain has never been in the Premier League before but does have the experience of the English football having coached Championship side Bristol City before.

McInnes led the Midland giants to promotion to the Premier League back in 2002 and it seems he is set to arrive in the midst of a much similar situation. The Baggies are currently flirting with the relegation zone and are placed just above the bottom zone with 10 points.

McInnes has also been linked with the Rangers managerial job after Pedro Caixinha was shown the door but an offer is yet to be made by the Gers. The Dons boss is expected to be officially approached by the Baggies in a few days.

McInnes has a pretty lengthy contract at the Scottish club which runs until 2020 and even was contacted by Sunderland to take up the job at the Wearside club but he turned down the opportunity.

Aberdeen might demand a hefty compensation package in order to part ways with their manager and it remains to be seen whether the Midland club entertains their plea or not. McInnes has been quite impressive at Aberdeen but his lack of knowledge about the Premier League could be a big hindrance in the near future. West Brom chairman John William is pretty fond of the gaffer and his influence could work in the favour of the move big time.
