The New Rangers Boss Might Regret This Motivational Message To Celtic

The New Rangers Boss Might Regret This Motivational Message To Celtic
By Gavin Cooney Updated

Rangers are on the verge of appointing a successor to Mark Warburton: Qatari club Al-Gharafa have given their permission to allow current manager Pedro Caixinha speak to the Glasgow club, finalising terms which will see the Portuguese become the latest man at Ibrox to try and challenge Celtic's dominance. Sky are reporting that terms have now been agreed, and Caixinha is expected to be formally announced within the next 24 hours.

Caixinha had an unremarkable playing career, he began management in his twenties. He spent a number of years working as an assistant manager, with clubs as varied as Sporting, Al-Hilal, Panathinaikos Rapid Bucharest and the Saudi national side, before going it alone with Uniao Leiria, before moving onto another side in Portugal: Nacional. A difficult spell there presaged a move to Mexico, to take over at Santos Laguna, with whom he won three trophies and reached the final of CONCAF's Champions League. He left in 2015 to join Al-Gharafa, with whom he has been with since.

While in Mexico, Caixinha, presumably assuming he would never end up managing Rangers, decided to send a message of congratuations to Celtic, congratulating them on their recent Scottish league victory.

It's explainable, however. Celtic have struck an official partnership with Santos Laguna, which began back in 2010.
