Report: Rangers senior man to team up with Mourinho during international break

By Abigail Withey 

Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho will be away in Portugal together on a course during the international break, according to a report.

The Scottish Sun has revealed that both the Gers and United manager will be in their home country of Portugal at the University of Lisbon for a few days while their players take part in international duty.

The newspaper claims that the two Portuguese bosses will linked up during the university’s high performance football coaching course over the next week.

It is also understood that the Lights Blues leader will be a lecturer at the higher education’s faculty of human kinetics while he is there.

As well as Mourinho, Caixinha will also be joined by Liverpool’s former director of football Damien Comolli.

While the Ibrox side’s boss is away for the final days of the transfer window, Mark Allan will be responsible for securing any last minute signings before deadline day on Thursday.

When Caixinha returns from Portugal and his players arrived back from their international squads the club will be preparing to continue their positive displays on the pitch and will face Dundee United.

The Light Blues got off to a bit of a mixed start as their victory during the opening weekend against Motherwell was followed by a defeat and a goalless draw.

Caixinha’s side seemed to pick back up last weekend after their 3-1 win over Ross County boosted their confidence.
