Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha has admitted that he found it difficult to adapt to the different style of football in Scottish and therefore sympathises with his new summer signings.

The Light Blues manager was appointed as the new Gers boss back in March and knows only too well what it’s like to move overseas as he managed Portuguese clubs UD Leiria and Nacional as well as Mexican side Santos Laguna and Qatar outfit Al-Gharafa before moving to the Glaswegian side.

The Portuguese boss had a busy summer during his first transfer window with the club and secured eight new permanent signings, two of which were Scottish.

New recruits like Carlos Pena, Eduardo Herrera, Fabio Cardoso, Daniel Candeias and Bruno Alves have had to quickly adapt to a new style of play at the Ibrox, and their manager has said that each of the new signings “need different times to get adapted”.

Caixinha spoke about understanding how his players feel ahead of their Friday fixture away from home against Partick Thistle, and he was quoted on the club’s official Twitter account.

Caixinha’s side will face Patrick Thistle at the Firhill Stadium for their next two fixtures as they face the fellow Glaswegians in the Premiership on Friday before meeting them again in the Scottish League Cup quarter-final.
