Rangers Appoint Pedro Caixinha

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 11 March 2017, 15:42

Rangers have at long last appointed Pedro Caixinha as Mark Warburton’s successor in the Gers dugout, with the Portuguese coach signing a three-year deal.

Rangers had been without a boss since Warburton’s departure a month ago, with Graeme Murty placed in caretaker charge following the Englishman's exit.

Murty went on to win three three and lose two of his five matches at the helm, while he will sign out for the sixth and final time on Sunday when Rangers lock horns with Old Firm rivals Celtic at Parkhead, while Caixinha will be in the stands.

Rangers have lost all three matches against rivals Celtic this season, while they haven’t triumphed in an Old Firm SPL fixtures for five years.

Murty was linked with the permanent post, as were the likes of former Birmingham boss Gary Rowett, Aberdeen’s Derek McInnes, and the ex Gers duo of Alex McLeish (manager) and Billy Davies (player).

However, Caixinha burst into contention last Tuesday, and had been the hot odds on favourite for the last week, but negotiations proved to be difficult due to complications with his side Qatari side Al-Gharafa Sports Club.

But, now a compensation package has now been agreed between the two parties, and Caixinha has been announced as Rangers’ third foreign manager in their history, and his first match will be against struggling Hamilton a week Saturday.

Celtic fans will enjoy this gem of a video of Caixinha, then Santos Laguna manager (Mexico), from 2015 when he congratulates his “Celtic Brothers” on their fourth successive SPL triumph…
