The Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern were delighted to see the side smash Dundee over the weekend after a fairly frustrating start to the season.
Indeed, the pressure was mounting on Pedro Caixinha prior to Saturday’s game at Ibrox, though two wins in a row have improved the collective mood of our resident Gers.
Still, the jury remains out on the Portuguese amongst our local Light Blues, though comments sourced in the Glasgow Evening Times have proven fairly promising for them.
The Ibrox chief has revealed he’s been in contact with compatriot Jose Mourinho since taking the job, with the Manchester United reportedly acting as a relative sounding board for Caixinha.
Caixinha says his talks with Mourinho about training, direction and conviction and the punters propping up our bar hope it works!
“If you ask me which manager you would call to discuss football and training then it’s him. If I have something to ask him, I do it directly”, he said.
”There was a time when I spoke with him regularly but not any more. In those days, I was an assistant and I was looking for knowledge and making sure I was heading in the right direction.
“Now my time is overloaded but, whenever I do need to speak to Jose, I go directly to him. There is no-one better. And his advice has helped me since coming to Rangers, totally.
”We don’t normally speak like …’this situation has happened, what should I do?’ It’s more about direction and conviction, how to be convinced about the methodology you use and the way you use it. That’s what we discuss – training and matches and the preparation for each and the relationship between them.”
