Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha has revealed that he wasn’t 100 per cent pleased with Saturday’s win against Dundee at Ibrox after his side failed to keep a clean sheet.
Since joining in March the boss has made a huge effort to put his own stamp on the club, and despite a mixed bag of results during the opening of the 2016/17 campaign, the Light Blues look to be on the right track after recently securing a 4-1 win over Dundee.
Although the manager was obviously ecstatic with the final result, the Portuguese boss has revealed that he was still incredibly frustrated that his side conceded a goal and failed to play at the required level after the half-time interval.
“I need to be upset and show it when things happen in a way you don’t want them to happen,” Caixinha told the Rangers official website.
“It’s the type of mentality I like, it’s the type of mentality I need to create and it’s the type of mentality where I need to show if I don’t like when things are happening – definitely.”
“We maybe had opportunities to score a few more goals, but the quality we arrived in the last third in was okay, though some things regarding to the starting and ending attacking positions, we need to improve.
“The way we conceded the goal too, I didn’t like it, and the way we began the second half, I didn’t like. Those points can make the difference – so we need to keep looking at them.”
The club had a turbulent previous season which left them 39 points behind champions and rivals Celtic in the Premiership table.
Caixinha had a busy summer during his first transfer window at the club and made eight permanent signings as well as three loan signings in the hopes of strengthening his squad for the 2017/18 campaign.
Following on from their win Caixinha and his squad will look ahead to their next Premiership match as they travel to Firhill Stadium to face Partick Thistle on Friday where they will be aiming to secure another three points as well as a clean sheet.
