Aberdeen have accused rumour-mongers of trying to unsettle the club as they insisted Derek McInnes was going nowhere.
The manager of the Ladbrokes Premiership leaders shot to the top of the league sponsors’ betting on the next top-flight boss to leave.
But the Dons said in a statement: “The club can confirm Derek McInnes remains the manager of Aberdeen Football Club.
“The various rumours which have been circulating this afternoon on social media are completely without substance or foundation and we would question the motivation of those individuals looking to unsettle the club.
“Derek is fully focussed on preparing the squad for our important match against Ross County on Friday evening.
“The club will not be commenting further on this matter.”
Ladbrokes earlier closed the betting on the subject after McInnes went from 25/1 to 10/11.
David Macdonald of Ladbrokes said: “Betting has been suspended following a run of bets for McInnes to be the next manager to leave. We’re taking a breather and will look to re-open the market shortly.”
