Interesting as I would have thought if we were interested in Russel then we would have be in for Gauld?
Why? Gauld isn't a McInnes type player. I don't think McInnes could use him... he wouldn't fit into a rigid McInnes system and offers next to nothing defensively (at United anyway, he may well have improved this side of his game). Jonny Russell works incredibly hard and McInnes could play him in either a forward role or in one of the wide positions.
