The countdown continues to Rangers’ massive clash with Celtic on Sunday and as reported by STV, manager Pedro Caixinha is not interested in all the chatter surrounding the Hoops going into the game.
Much of the focus in the build-up to this weekend’s fixture has been on Celtic’s unbeaten run and their ambitions of winning a treble for the first time in 16 years.
However, Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha hasn’t given much thought to all that and when asked about it gave a brilliant, simple response.
As quoted by STV, he said:
I’m not worried about [Celtic being unbeaten], and I don’t think that they are so obsessed with that.Everyone is talking about stopping a treble and I don’t care about it. I’m just focused on my team.
With all the hype and focus on the Gers’ rivals across the city, Sunday’s game is a massive opportunity for Caixinha to truly arrive on the Scottish scene and lay down a marker that next season may not be the cakewalk that some think for the Hoops.
Rangers showed a fantastic fighting spirit in the last match between the two clubs at Celtic Park and if they can tap into that again and find a determination to stop the treble at all costs, then it could be a fine afternoon for Gers fans despite their team being massive underdogs.
