Talks on Tuesday: Face-to-face Rangers transfer discussions to take place - reports
By Alex Stevens
Pedro Caixinha is set to meet Rangers chairman Dave King for the first time on Tuesday, according to a report.
The Scottish Sun claim the Ibrox powerbroker will arrive in Scotland for his first face-to-face meeting with the newly appointed manager.
The same newspaper reported last week that King has made plans to fly in from his base in south Africa to discuss plans for next season and Caixinha’s potential transfer budget.
The face-to-face meeting is likely to be key to how Rangers aim to narrow the gulf with runaway Scottish Premiership leaders and bitter rivals Celtic.
Ex-manager Mark Warburton recruited 11 senior players last summer, supplemented by two January loan arrivals, but most have failed to fire at Ibrox.

Supporters have called for more money to be spent to shake up a side that is 33 points adrift of champions-elect Celtic, who are closing in on a sixth consecutive title that is likely to be sealed at the start of April.
Rangers chiefs have sanctioned a complete revamp of the club’s football activities following what has been a wretched campaign.
New manager Caixinha had a memorable first game in charge last weekend, as Rangers demolished Hamilton 4-0 in the Scottish Premiership at Ibrox.
But Celtic are marching on inexorably to the title and also have a domestic treble in their sights as they aim to maintain their grip on Scottish football.
In other Rangers transfer news, one of the club’s midfielders has agreed the terms of a mammoth new deal.
