Rangers fans have turned to social media to react to a report that former manager Pedro Caixinha has been named as the new manager of Mexican side Cruz Azul.

The Portuguese boss was sacked by the Gers over a month ago after a disappointing start to their Premiership campaign, as well as tumbling out of the Europa League at the qualifying stage.

However, while there has yet to be a new appointment at Ibrox, Caixinha seems to have made an immediate return to management, joining top flight Mexican side Cruz Azul, as reported by the Daily Record.

His appointment comes after he previously managed in Mexico, taking charge of Santos Laguna and leading them to a league title back in 2015 before moving to Scotland.



The 47-year-old took charge of just 26 matches during his time at Ibrox, joining the club back in March 2017, but endured a hit-and-miss time in both the league and the cup competitions.

He was in charge for the shock defeat to Progres Niederkorn in the first round of the Europa League qualifying stages, while domestically there were mixed results for the Gers.

His last game came in a 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock, which itself came just days after the Scottish League Cup semi final defeat to Motherwell.

In other Rangers news, Graeme Murty has claimed that his summer signing was a bargain buy.
