Agent: Former Ibrox boss in-demand but needs agreement from Rangers
By John Reid
Rangers have yet to agree to a pay-off with former manager Pedro Caixinha, according to his agent Nuno Batista.
Speaking to the Daily Record, Baista claimed that the lack of deal is stopping Caixinha getting a job in Mexico.
“Yes, there has been contract from Mexican clubs, but we cannot talk to anyone until we reach agreement with Rangers.
“We are still trying to finalise the details with them and that is our priority for now.”
Up to four clubs in Mexico are interested in appointing Caixinha as their manager.

Caixinha had his greatest success as manager at Santos Laguna, where he won three major honours.
His spell at Rangers lasted only seven months, as he was sacked following a 1-1 draw at Ibrox with Kilmarnock, and his stay in Glasgow has to be considered a disaster.
He presided over Rangers’ heaviest ever defeat to Celtic at home, the first loss at Ibrox against Aberdeen in over 20 years and a defeat at Progres Niederkorn of Luxembourg in the Euopa League.
Rangers have now been left with many players that Caixinha signed, with no guarantee that the new manager – the favourite is Derek McInnes – will want them.
