The Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern were expecting so much more from Pedro Caixinha during his first full season in charge of the club.
Indeed, our local Light Blues are wary of making a decision on his future too soon, though were hoping for more after a major summer overhaul saw the Portuguese stamp his authority on the squad at Ibrox.
Still, they’re reserving their real judgement for after the Premiership winter break, when the campaign really hots up, and have been encouraged by reports from the Daily Record as to the Gers’ plans during it.
They’ve revealed that yet more opponents have been revealed for the glamorous Florida Cup the Scottish giants will take part in over the winter break.
When across the pond, Rangers will square off against the likes of Atletico Mineiro and Corinthians of Brazil in early January, with the likes of Legia Warsaw and PSV also in contention for the 19-day tournament.
For the punters propping up our bar, the idea of seeing the club face off against Brazilian opposition has gone down well.
While no one takes a friendly tournament all that seriously, perhaps facing opposition from a different part of the globe can help Rangers. Finding new ways of playing could help Caixinha install some confidence into the final stretch.
