Could Rangers go left-field with Pedro Caixinha?

Rangers supporters would be forgiven for doing a double take when scanning through the Next Rangers Manager Market this morning (Wednesday) after Pedro Caixinha was propelled into the top cluster of names in the betting to replace Mark Warburton at Ibrox.

On Tuesday it was Norwich City boss Alex Neil who briefly topped the Gers market, only for Alex McLeish to quickly regain his place at the summit, although Sky Bet now make Caixinha - a former Celtic scout - the joint 2/1 favourite.

Caixinha may be unknown to some, but others will remember the Portuguese coach being in the mix to join Rangers as an assistant back in the summer of 2015, only for a deal to fall through.

Caixinha held coaching spells in his homeland, Saudi Arabia, Greece, and Romania, before landing his first job in the managerial arena with Portuguese side Uniao de Leira in 2010, leading the club to 10th in the Primeira Liga.

Next up was Nacional, and again it was a short tenure, with the Madeirans finishing 7th, before he made a hasty exit the following season.

Soon after Caixinha fancied a change of scenery, voyaging over to Mexico with Santo Laguna, which proved to be a rewarding decision, hoisting three major titles and leading his troops to the final of the CONCACAF Champions League.

The 46-year-old has since been in charge of the super rich Qatar outfit Al-Gharafa, but if rumours are to be believed he could now be jumping ship over to Scotland…
