Aberdeen set to reward McInnes

Aberdeen will offer a new contract to manager Derek McInnes according to reports.

McInnes, who has been at the Pittodrie since March 2013, has led the Dons to second place in the Scottish Premiership as well as the League Cup final (against Inverness on March 16) and the Scottish Cup quarter-finals.

The 42-year old has impressed during his first 12 months which has prompted Aberdeen chairman Stewart Milne to try and secure him on a long-term deal.

"I'm very conscious of the reputation Derek has and how it is growing," Milne told the Sunday Mail. "We'll need to work hard to make sure Derek stays here for a substantial period of time.

"I don't think Derek wants to be viewed as a one-year success.

"He wants to take Aberdeen back to the top of the Scottish game and have a regular presence in Europe.

"Derek has convinced players to re-sign and make a commitment. I think Derek's approach is the same and he has to take the lead and make the same commitment. We're confident he is committed."
