The Ibrox club have taken their time securing a new manager after sacking the Portuguese at the end of October.

McInnes has also earned some wrath from the fans as his possible last two last games as Aberdeen manager came in defeats to Rangers, home and away.

McInnes missed training yesterday for talks with Dons chairman Stewart Milne.

Both McInnes and his assistant Tony Docherty were absent from training for the second day running on Thursday as those discussions continued.

The Scottish Sun reported earlier that McInnes' move is finally expected to be sorted today after weeks of rumours.

Now Dons under-20s boss Sheerin - who has been preparing the team for Friday night's clash at Dundee alongside first team-coach Barry Robson - says a conclusion could be in sight.

However, it is understood the 46-year-old's move to Premiership rivals Rangers will be pushed through.

He started off his managerial career at St Johnstone before moving south of the border for a failed spell at Bristol City.

Aberdeen Under-20s boss Paul Sheerin is set to manage the Dons against Dundee at Dens Park tomorrow, saying in his pre-match press conference he has discussed the game with Derek McInnes.

"There will be a resolution on the manager sometime today and we're preparing for the game tomorrow night", he said.

Dons' Supporters Together chairman Scott Barclay told BBC Scotland: "I fully expect that he and that is Derek McInnes", added Barclay.
