McInnes to take over at Aberdeen

Derek McInnes has been appointed as Aberdeen's next manager and will take over following the Scottish Premier League split in a fortnight's time.

Current Dons boss Craig Brown revealed earlier this month that he will be retiring to take up a non-executive director role with the club after the split.

McInnes, who was sacked by Bristol City in January, will be joined by assistant coach Tony Docherty. Both have signed up until 2015, with the option of a rolling contract thereafter.

An official club statement read: "Aberdeen Football Club can confirm Derek McInnes and Tony Docherty as their new football management team with the pair set to officially take charge following the SPL split in just under a fortnight's time.''

McInnes, who worked with Docherty at both St Johnstone and City, is delighted at having been given the chance to get back into management.

"I'm absolutely thrilled to be given the opportunity to manage a club of the stature of Aberdeen and am determined to repay their faith in me," he said.

Pittodrie chairman Stewart Milne is equally thrilled with the news and feels that McInnes and Docherty were the perfect candidates for the job.

"From the moment Craig Brown announced his intention to step down, Derek and Tony were at the forefront of our thoughts alongside other potential candidates," he said.

"Our board had a clear vision of the type of person we needed to drive change going forward and having reviewed and worked through all of the available options in detail, the consensus was very much that they ticked all of the right boxes for us."

Aberdeen currently sit ninth in the SPL, just two points outside the top six.
