What we know about Sunderland managerial target Derek McInnes from tactics to experience 


ROSS GREGORY Email 20:18Wednesday 24 May 2017 


Derek McInnes is the new favourite to be appointed Sunderland manager - but what do we know about the Scot? 


We take a look at the man in the frame to succeed David Moyes in the Stadium of Light hotseat. 


1. Championship experience McInnes has experience of the Championship, albeit not entirely happy memories. He took charge of Bristol City in October 2011 with the Robins adrift at the bottom of the table but McInnes guided City to an eight-game unbeaten run that secured their league status. However, he couldn't build on that and the next season was sacked in January with City eight points adrift at the bottom. 


2. Scottish success McInnes made his name as manager of St Johnstone, where he guided them to promotion to the SPL in his first full season in charge. He then kept them in the top flight before moving to Bristol City. After he was sacked by the Robins, he was appointed Aberdeen boss in 2013 and has gone on to establish them as Celtic's closest rivals, finishing runners-up in three successive seasons. 


3. Silverware McInnes' best moment so far at the Dons has been lifting the Scottish League Cup in 2014. It was their first trophy in 19 years and they also qualified for Europe that campaign. He was named PFA Scotland Manager of the Year and SFWA Manager of the Year. 


4. Tactics McInnes has brought great success to Aberdeen with an intense style of play that puts pressure on the opponents. They press high up the pitch and snap into tackles, while they're also not afraid to get the ball in the box from wide areas. 


5. McInnes the player Again, the 45-year-old Scot has Championship experience, leading West Brom to promotion in 2002 as captain of the Baggies. He was a hard-working, tough midfielder with strong leadership qualities, and picked up two full Scotland caps late in his career.

Don't remember him at West Brom, but that all sounds good to me. In a way I would rather have an 'unknown' who has to prove himself, than someone like Kevin Phillips or Nigel Pearson who perhaps have too much to lose by coming here. What a conundrum eh?

Aberdeen prepare for Derek McInnes exit amid Sunderland interest Derek McInnes 


ROSS GREGORY Email 14:39Friday 02 June 2017 


Aberdeen are preparing for life without Sunderland managerial target Derek McInnes. 


The Echo understands the Scottish Premiership outfit are readying themselves for the Black Cats to make a move for the 45-year-old. Martin Bain But, as yet, Sunderland are yet to make an official approach for the Dons boss. McInnes has made it be known privately that he wants to be given the chance to take the reins at the Stadium of Light, but has publicly distanced himself from the role. 


In the aftermath of last weekend's Scottish Cup final loss to Celtic he made it clear he would only leave Pittodrie for the right kind of offer, given that he was burned by his experiences at cash-strapped Bristol City earlier in his career. But behind the scenes the Dons are understood to be preparing for McInnes' exit, with the likes of Jack Ross, who has impressed at St Mirren, a contender to step in should the former Rangers and West Brom midfielder head to Wearside. 


McInnes faces a massive rebuild job in the North East of Scotland. Key men Niall McGinn, who could be off to Bolton Wanderers, MK Dons-bound Peter Pawlett, Ash Taylor and former Sunderland target Johnny Hayes, who has been subject to interest from Brendan Rodgers' Bhoys, are all set to depart this summer. Skipper Ryan Jack, who McInnes stripped of the captaincy in the run up to last weekend's final, has already exited on a free transfer to boyhood heroes Rangers. 


The scale of the task at hand north of the border means he is not fazed by a potential summer of upheaval in the North East. The feeling is that although Sunderland is a tough job, with strong financial constraints, the time could be right for McInnes, linked constantly with a return to Ibrox, to leave. 


One massive stumbling block could well be cash. While the purse strings will be tight for any new manager at SoL, a compensation package totalling more than £1million, due to McInnes and trusted assistant Tony Docherty having two years left on their current Dons deal, could put a spanner in the works for the Black Cats. While that may prove to be a stumbling block, the Echo has learned that McInnes is at the very top of chief executive Martin Bain's wishlist. Walter Smith, a manager who helped shape McInnes' career, signing him as a kid from Morton at Rangers, has championed his protege's cause privately. Smith, with his wife, were Bain's guests in the Stamford Bridge boardroom on the final day of Sunderland's ill-fated Premier League campaign. Bain is understood to be meeting with agents of candidates over the coming days.
