St Johnstone fans must be sick and tired of Burnley FC.
If the rumours are true, Burnley not content with enticing former St Johnstone boss, Owen Coyle to Turf Moor and succeeding could now be looking to raid McDiarmid Park again and poach his replacement,Derek McInnes.
Saints chairman Geoff Brown certainly hopes that lightning does not strike twice.
He said recently:
'Nobody's contacted me, and I hope that remains the case.
'There are plenty of English managers with good CVs out of work just now, so I would imagine that would be the route Burnley would go down.'
McInnes, 39 took over St Johnstone when Owen Coyle and Sandy Stewart departed for Turf Moor in November 2007.
In May 2009 McInnes achieved promotion to the Scottish Premier League for St. Johnstone after seven long years in the First Division.
Other clubs began to take note and during 2009-10 he was linked with the manager's role at both West Brom and Watford but instead eventually signed a new contract with the Perth club in October 2009.
During his playing career the midfielder gained two Scottish caps.
He started his professional career at Greenock Morton in 1988 and then went onto play for Rangers,Stockport County(loan),Toulouse,West Brom,Dundee United and Millwall before finishing his footballing days at McDiarmid Park.
So how good is McInnes then? Well if you can face watching Owen Coyle, listen to what he thinks by following the You Tube player below. He is one of many who rate McInnes highly.
