Three reasons this international break is perfect for Rangers
International breaks mid-season are never the most exciting time for die hard football fans who follow their clubs week-in, week-out. Often seen as a distraction, especially when friendlies are involved, many supporters are left twiddling their thumbs when the weekend without their teams rolls around.
It can be disruptive too, especially for teams in good form who are hitting their stride. For teams out of form it can be a period of unwanted reflection and navel gazing that can sink confidence even lower.
For Rangers though, the current international break has come an absolutely perfect time for the club and their new manager Pedro Caixinha. Having been in the job for just two weeks, time is precious for the Portuguese in the midst of an important few months for the club.
Here are THREE reasons why this particular international weekend is a godsend for Rangers as they look to revive a stuttering top flight campaign.
