As reported by The Daily Record, Pedro Caixinha is already getting to work at Rangers, analysing the backroom staff and making some ruthless changes.
For Rangers goalkeeper Jim Stewart has played an integral part in the club’s coaching set-up over the last decade but it appears his relationship with the Ibrox side is about to come to an end.
That’s according to The Daily Record, who say that Pedro Caixinha has axed the goalkeeping coach in one his first major decisions as Rangers manager.
A former goalkeeper himself, Caixinha has wasted no time in making the changes he feels are needed to bring the Gers to the next level.
It may come as a surprise to Rangers fans that the experienced coach will no longer have a role at the club but there may be some method to the apparent madness.
The Record reckons Caixinha is a workaholic and demands the same 24/7 focus from all of his staff. That rubs up against the fact Jim Stewart also coaches for Scotland and has to leave Auchenhowie to join up with Gordon Strachan and the players there.
A Record source said:
Pedro views any breaks for international matches as vital for training and tactical work. If Jim is away on Scotland duty then that’s hardly ideal.
That offers some insight into why this decision has been made but it’s still a ruthless decision and fans will be hoping that it’s at least a positive step for club performances.
The performances of Wes Foderingham may well come under increased scrutiny from pundits and supporters in the coming months.
