Fowler, who is currently managing Indian Super League side East Bengal, reckons it is a position where the next manager is set up to be successful.

Derek McInnes departed last week with Aberdeen on the lookout for a manager for the first time in eight years.

“I’ve got another year at East Bengal, obviously happy there, I’ve got a bit of a job to do,” he told the Robbie Fowler Podcast.

"I’ll be honest, it’s a fantastic club. Everything is in place for whoever goes in to be successful. I think it is a good job to inherit, we all know that. We all know how good the chairman is, he’s been fantastic with the club, he’s put his money where his mouth is. They are a massive club. We’re all aware of how big they have progressed over the years.

"I think Derek McInnes has done a decent job in all fairness, probably plateaued out a bit in the last year or so, everything is plain to see.

The job he was doing beforehand got everyone talking. Before Steven took the Rangers job he was in the hunt for that so he was obviously doing well."

He added: “They’ve had a lot of players who have left recently. Scott McKenna, Kenny McLean and not forgetting Sam Cosgrove. That’s the reality of the situation, they’ve got good players."

Former Aberdeen star Stephen Glass remains the strong favourite to land the post.

Fowler reckons there is further scope to progress the club.

"I think there is potential there for the club to grow,” he said. “Potentially it is a huge club on the rise. I think whoever gets it is on to something good.

"They’ve got a new training ground which is good, there’s no debt within the club. You thank the chairman Dave Cormack for doing what he’s done. He’s got everyone talking about them in the right place.

“It's a good football club, well organised, well run and well supported. There's good scope for whoever goes in to grow themselves and certainly grow the club.”
