Three things Rangers need to do to rebuild after humiliating Progres result
Build a schedule of challenging friendlies
Rangers next competitive match isn’t until 6th August when they face Motherwell, which is over a month beyond the game in Luxembourg, meaning Pedro Caixinha has a struggle on his hands to get his team up to peak match fitness.
The Sun revealed in the wake of the Progres defeat that there are no scheduled friendlies for the Rangers first team between now and the league kick-off.
The club were clearly banking on making some sort of progress in European qualifying. Had they made it through, the fixtures would have been plentiful and the perfect warm up for the Scottish Premiership.
They now need to put together a strong set of friendly fixtures against testing opposition if they are to get themselves into shape.
Caixinha needs to know what his team are all about in adversity so securing matches against the highest standard of team possible would be ideal to really put his new recruits and the talent already at Ibrox through the gauntlet they need, without the pressure of competitive football.
