Rangers waiting on approval to offer 46-year-old manager position - report

By Harvey Byrne

Rangers are hoping to offer Pedro Caixinha the manager’s job early next week, according to a report.

Scottish news outlet STV have claimed that the 46-year-old is the number one target to replace Mark Warburton at the famous club after impressing in his interview.

It is believed they will now look to offer him the manager’s position, but they will need to wait for approval from the club’s PLC board first.

The Portuguese national is currently the boss of Qatari outfit Al-Gharafa Sports Club.

However, the report has shared that Caixinha will travel to Portugal after their match against Al Sailiya this weekend in order to move quickly if Rangers do offer him the position at the club.

The Gers’ next match on Saturday will see them face Hamilton in the Scottish cup before facing fierce rivals Celtic on March 12.

It would be ideal for the Ibrox giants to have a new manager in place for the Old Firm derby, but it will certainly be a tough start for any potential appointment.

Caixinha began senior management in 2010 with Portuguese outfit U.D. Leiria and he has since won three honours with Mexican outfit Santos Laguna.

If he is to be Rangers’ next manager then fans will certainly be hoping he can bring some of that success up to Glasgow and help them challenge Celtic once more.
