Not all of the Rangers fans here in the Transfer Tavern are signing from the same hymn sheet when it comes to Pedro Caixinha. Indeed, while many of the punters propping up our bar believe the Portuguese should be given a chance over the course of a whole season, he’s barely covered himself in glory so far.
While that could all change with a League Cup win, should the Gers progressing passed Motherwell in the semi-final this weekend, the jury remains out. So, a report from the Daily Record talking about a universally popular former Ibrox chief has tugged at the collective heartstrings of our local Light Blues.
According to the Record, Holland manager Dick Advocaat is pleading with KNVB to given him one last game in charge of the Dutch national side, against Scotland at Pittodrie next month. The 70-year-old, who won FIVE major trophies between 1998 and 2002 in charge of Rangers, was expected to leave the Oranje after failing to take them to the 2018 World Cup.
However, he’s understood to want one last game in Scotland and the Rangers fans in our bar will be happy to see him back on Scottish soil for one last time.
“So we are going to Scotland – that’s a beautiful match with a real personal touch for me”, he said.
