Derek McInnes is the new manager of Aberdeen. The former Bristol City boss, who replaces Craig Brown, will take charge of his first game after the annual SPL split.
After a successful playing career that saw him make over 400 appearances, Derek McInnes gained his first managerial post at St Johnstone as he took over the reins following the departure of Owen Coyle.
Having played for the club at the end of his career, McInnes was appointed manager in November 2007 and it wasn't long before the former Scottish international showed his class, as in 2008-2009 season, McInnes managed to gain promotion with St Johnstone to the Scottish Premier League.
A glowing achievement in its own right, but McInnes managed to maintain their status in the SPL and this caught the eye of Bristol City, who were looking for a new manager following Keith Millen's departure.
Having been granted to permission to speak to the West Country club by St Johnstone, McInnes eventually signed a contract with the Robins in October 2011 and was given the brief to keep the club in the Championship as they lay bottom of the table.
In his short time there, McInnes has improved the style of football and the club look to be heading on an upward curve. They avoided relegation at the end of the season, with a 20th place finish.
