Kenny Miller believes that the upcoming international break could prove pivotal to Rangers’ season.
Pedro Caixinha has now had his first few days in charge at the club since being appointed as the new manager last week.
The Portuguese boss was in the stands for Rangers’ 1-1 draw with Celtic on Sunday but will take charge of his first game against Hamilton on Saturday at Ibrox.
Clint Hill rescued a late point for Gers in the Old Firm clash to prevent a fourth loss of the seasno to their Glasgow rivals.
Miller has now highlighted that the two week gap between the home ties with the Accies and Motherwell is the perfect time for Caixinha to get his ideas across to the players and let the squad settle into his regime.
“He has come in and put his own methods across. With the international break, that time will be crucial to bed things in,” said Miller in a press conference on Thursday, as quoted by the official Rangers Twitter account.
“The boys have adapted well and are really enjoying it.”

Caixinha takes the reins from former caretaker boss Graeme Murty, who presided over the club when they won just one of their last four league games.
Rangers have slipped eight points behind second-placed Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership since Mark Warburton left the club in controversial circumstances in mid-February.
Murty did manage to book the Light Blues a place in the Scottish Cup semi-final, where they will again face Celtic at Hampden Park.
Miller has made 36 appearances for Gers this season in all competitions and has scored nine goals.
In other Rangers news, Caixinha has revealed he has a shortlist of names ready for this key role.
