When did Derek McInnes get sent off by the referee?

Rangers made an offer to McInnes in December 2017 (soon following two league games in four days between the teams, both won by Glasgow), but he turned it down. McInnes was sent off by the referee in April 2019 for gesticulating at Celtic fans during a 2018-19 Scottish Cup semi-final. The incident occurred when McInnes attempted to remonstrate with the linesman after being called for a foul during Rangers' 1-0 defeat by their city rivals.

McInnes has been widely criticised for his actions and it is believed that he will be leaving Ibrox this summer. He took over as manager in May 2016 after Graeme Souness resigned to take over as coach at Inter Milan. During his time at Ibrox, McInnes has achieved a great deal - including three consecutive top-five finishes in the Scottish Premiership - but he is also known for some of his comments towards the match officials. He was sent off once himself and had several close calls with red cards during his time at the club.

The latest episode in which he was found guilty of insulting a referee came just before the start of this season's Scottish Cup campaign. During this game, played at Hampden Park, McInnes reacted angrily to seeing that the centre-back who had committed the foul was not given a card and began gesturing towards the pitch side where the linesman was standing.

When did Derek McInnes become manager of Aberdeen?

On March 25, 2013, McInnes was named Aberdeen manager, with Tony Docherty as his assistant. After the match against Dundee United on April 6, he formally took over as manager, with departing manager Craig Brown taking command of the final two games before the late-season break. McInnes' first game in charge was a 1–1 draw at home to Inverness CT.

He has successfully steered the club out of relegation danger and into European competition for the first time in their history. During that period, they have also reached the Scottish Cup final for the first time in 70 years and won one cap for Scotland during his time there.

McInnes was born on May 4, 1971 in Glasgow. He started his career with Celtic, making his debut in 1990. Over the next six years, he played over 100 matches for the club, scoring 15 goals. In 1996, he moved to England where he spent three seasons with Sheffield Wednesday, playing over 50 matches and scoring nine goals. In 1999, he returned to Scotland where he had a short spell with St Johnstone before joining Hibernian. He helped them win the Scottish Cup in his only season with the club before moving back to England where he signed with Derby County in June 2003. He stayed at Derby for five seasons, helping them win the Championship title in his last year with them. In 2008, he returned to Scotland where he joined McInnes's old club Aberdeen.

Why did Derek McInnes leave Aberdeen?

Derek McInnes has departed Aberdeen after eight years as manager. McInnes was under fire after a string of disappointing performances, culminating in last Saturday's goalless stalemate at home against Hamilton. The Dons then lost 3-1 at St Johnstone.

Aberdeen said in a statement that they "regret to announce that Derek McInnes has left the club by mutual consent". The 46-year-old took over from Jack Ross in June 2011 and led the club to its first Scottish Premier League title. However, he failed to win any of his subsequent seven games and was replaced by Peter Houston.

McInnes told reporters after the loss to St John's that he was "devastated" not to have delivered a trophy to Pittodrie. He added: "I've given my all to this football club and I wish it success for the future."

Aberdeen announced on 23 May that McInnes had agreed to become Houston's assistant at the Dons. The club said at the time that they hoped the move would help both men develop their skills further and that it was only a temporary measure while they looked for another manager.

McInnes is expected to be offered a role within the club's new ownership structure once they are approved by the Scottish Football Association.

Where did Derek McInnes go?

Derek McInnes has stepped down as Aberdeen manager after eight years in command of Pittodrie. McInnes and his deputy, Tony Docherty, have both left the club immediately. McInnes, the former manager of St. Johnstone and Bristol City, opted to resign following mounting pressure from fans in recent months. He has agreed a deal with Scottish Premiership side Aberdeen to become their new director of football operations.

McInnes' departure comes just three days after he met with chairman Stewart Donald to discuss plans for next season's team by which time they would have been able to agree a contract. The 50-year-old took over at Pittodrie in May 2008 and led the club to its first Scottish Premier League title in 30 years. During his time at the Granite City, he also won two Scottish Cups and was twice named PFA Scotland Manager of the Year.

However, McInnes came under fire from all angles this season. After losing his first four games in charge, he managed to turn things around by winning seven out of his last nine matches in all competitions. But that wasn't enough to prevent Aberdeen from being relegated back to the Scottish Championship for the first time since 1971. Despite this, McInnes insisted after the final game of the season that he was not leaving the club despite fan protests otherwise. He said: "I will stay here at Aberdeen until my deal expires in June 2019."

When did Derek McInnes take Aberdeen to the Cup finals?

McInnes guided Aberdeen to two domestic cup finals in the 2016-17 season, both of which they lost to Celtic. The squad embarked on a ten-match winning streak at Pittodrie, breaking Alex Ferguson's Aberdeen record of nine consecutive home wins in 1985-86. (although not a club record). The streak ended when Kilmarnock beat Aberdeen 1-0 in the Scottish Premiership match on 30 November 2016.

Derek McInnes is the current manager of Aberdeen FC. He succeeded Craig Brown who was sacked by Aberdeen in October 2016. McInnes is the fourth most successful manager in Aberdeen history and the first since 1983 to win more than one game in his first match as manager. He has also won the Scottish Cup with Aberdeen in 2017 after beating Celtic 2-1 in the final at Hampden Park.

He previously managed St Mirren from July 2010 until December 2011 when he left by mutual consent after being unable to prevent the club from being relegated from the Premier League. Prior to this, he had been assistant manager at St Mirren for three years following his departure from Scotland where he worked under Gordon Strachan at the national team.

He started his career at Queen's Park before moving south to join Dundee United where he spent five seasons, including two seasons as player-manager. After retiring as a player, he went back to Hamilton as an assistant coach under John McMaster before being offered the job at St Mirren.
