McInnes in no mood to leave Aberdeen

Derek McInnes has made it clear that he has no plans to leave Aberdeen anytime soon.

The 42-year old manager has had a successful season in charge of the Dons who won the League Cup in March and currently sit second to champions Celtic on the Scottish Premiership table.

Reports suggest that the former St Johnstone and Bristol City boss will attracted plenty of interest this summer but he has suggested that a Pittodrie departure is certainly not something he has given too much thought to.

"Aberdeen ticks all the boxes for me. At the minute I am really happy," said McInnes who was named the PFA Scotland Manager of the Year and William Hill Manager of the Year, as voted for by members of the Scottish Football Writers' Association.

"I keep saying to the players, 'This is only the start.' We have to keep working to improve and there is so much still to achieve.

"I love working at the club. I see no reason for that to change."

Of the PFA and SFWA awards, the second of which was announced on Monday, McInnes added: "The awards are down to the efforts of so many people. As a club we have upped our game."
