Fans react to Pedro Caixinha naming his starting XI a day in advance

Pedro Caixinha has announced his Rangers team for tomorrow’s match against Kilmarnock more than 24 hours in advance, in a move you usually don’t see at club level in football.

Bringing in some young faces in the form of David Bates and Myles Beerman, it’s a bold selection as he looks to find a response in his team from Saturday’s disappointing draw with Motherwell at Ibrox.

Caixinha’s relationship with the press has been unconventional in recent weeks with long discussions about the tactical set-up of the opposition, facts on players and now this unusual announcement.
