Derek McInnes is to remain as St Johnstone manager after turning down an offer from npower League One Brentford.
McInnes confirmed on Tuesday that he had spoken to the Bees about the vacancy created when Andy Scott departed in February.
But the 39-year-old former Rangers and Dundee United midfielder has now rejected the opportunity to take charge at Griffin Park.
A statement on the club's official website read: "Derek McInnes has this afternoon spoken to chairman Geoff Brown and advised him that he has formally turned down the opportunity to move to Brentford FC.
"Everyone at the club is delighted with this news and hopes that it now allows the speculation over the manager to cease and for preparations for next season to press ahead."
