Sacked Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha’s agent has revealed that the 47-year-old could make a quick return to football after planning on taking a sabbatical until next season following his Ibrox flop.
Caixinha was sacked seven months into a three-year contract with the Glasgow giants but his agent Nuno Baptista claims the Portuguese has offers on the table to get straight back to work.
Caixinha has been linked with a return to Mexican football where he enjoyed great success with Santos Laguna before heading to Qatar with Al-Gharafa and it seems he may now be considering the idea of going back.
“Pedro wanted to take a break after what happened at Rangers and spend some time with his family,” Baptista said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
“But offers have now started to come in for him and we are analysing the proposals.
“His plan initially was to stay out of football until the summer, so if he took over a new project, it would be from the beginning of the season.
“Let’s see what is the best option for him.”
Cruz Azul were the latest club to be thinking about a move for Caixinha, according to the Scottish Sun, after parting company with manager Paco Jemez.
During his time in Mexico, Caixinha won Liga MX’s Clausura championship in 2014 and Copa MX’s Apetura the following year as well as the ‘Champion of Champions’ trophy contested by the winners of each year’s two Liga MX champions.
Since sacking Caixinha, Rangers have handed interim control to Under-20’s boss Graeme Murty as the board take their time appointing Caixinha’s successor.
Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes and former Rangers boss Alex McLeish are the frontrunners with the bookmakers to take the reins at Ibrox.
