Derek McInnes: Rangers should be "embarrassed" to finish behind Aberdeen

Caixinha and Dons boss Derek McInnes have been locked in a war of words for most of the week after the Rangers manager suggested Aberdeen's powers were waning.

Rangers lost 2-1 - losing to Aberdeen at home for the first time since 1991 - and the frosty relationship is no closer to being resolved.

On behalf of the board and staff I thank every one of them.

A day after the Dons boss told Gers they should be "embarrassed" at only finishing third, his side gave another stark illustration of the improvements the Light Blues have yet to make.

But a tousy end to... "They should be proud of what they have done along these five years".

Martyn Waghorn's goal proved to be a consolation for Rangers, who have plenty of work to do over the summer as new manager Caixinha looks to turn the club around.

"No, Rangers need to feel very proud". Because this is a club that has travelled all the way from the bottom to the Europa League.

"I will conclude that process during this week."Things are progressing all of the time, with transfer targets and we are moving in the direction we intend".

"I need to keep doing my job in order to bring the players I want to Rangers and the players I know that are going to perform according to the Rangers standards".

McInnes promised the Aberdeen supporters that everything will be done to improve a squad who have for three years been the best of the rest and face Celtic in this month's William Hill Scottish Cup final. I thought we played really well and we're probably disappointed not to have scored a few more.

Dave King has vowed to repay Rangers fans' loyalty by ploughing all of the funds received from record season tickets sales back into the team.

Nicholas also blasted manager Caixinha for "thinking he owns" Scotland and Scottish football, suggesting he spends too much time explaining his tactics to the press and not enough to his players - a weird accusation.

"It puts us on the back foot and when we score first, we usually go on to win comfortably".
