Three reasons why Celtic fans can’t write off new Rangers boss Caixinha
He’s won major honours before
Pedro Caixinha has won major national honours before, with Santos Laguna in Mexico. In 2014 he won the national cup competition Copa MX and in 2015 went on to win a national league title in the second half of 2015 as part of a league and play-off format. He would also go on to win the prestigious ‘Campeon de Campeones’ match where the winners of the league in the first half of the year met his Santos Laguna side for a winner-takes-all final on neutral ground.
He clearly knows how to get results and get them in high pressure games. That winning mentality will bode well for Rangers.
While Mark Warburton had his positives, he had never actually won anything as a manager before arriving at Rangers and never won anything approaching the stature of the Mexican trophies while at Ibrox. In the end, it was perhaps that misunderstanding of the need to win every game that because his downfall.
If Caixinha can transfer his success with Santos Laguna to Ibrox, it could be a great few years for Gers fans.
