Rangers have today called a halt to manager Pedro Caixinha’s time at Ibrox!
The Portuguese manager lasted 7 months in charge of the Ibrox club and last night’s 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock at Ibrox, with Rangers old boy, Chris Burke , scoring the equaliser for the Rugby Park club and sealing the fate of Caixinha in the process.
The results in his time in charge, have simply not been good enough and the failure to win three matches in a row in his time at Ibrox, did not help his cause neither did the early European defeat to Progress Niederkorn and the fact that Celtic had been so strong last season and this season.
An unscheduled board meeting was called for this morning and Dave King did not look a happy man as he left Ibrox, he knew that something had to be done as the club sit in fourth position in the league and crashed out of the BetFred Cup, after losing to Motherwell at the weekend.
He has not been helped by the performance of players on the park and the fall out’s with Kenny Miller and Lee Wallace recently, could not have helped his cause.
For now and the match against Hearts at Murrayfield on Saturday, Graeme Murty will take charge of the team as he has done before.
Rangers are looking for a new manager once again and rest assured, they will know the task ahead facing them will be difficult but it will not stop top names applying once again!
More to follow in our Football Round Up
RANGERS Football Club announce today (Thursday, October 26, 2017) that Pedro Caixinha has left the Club.
The decision to part company with Pedro was taken after careful consideration and the search for a new manager will begin immediately.
Pedro was appointed in March this year but results have been disappointing and not commensurate with the level of investment that was made available.
Graeme Murty, head development squad coach, will take charge of the first-team in the interim, just as he did earlier this year.
The priority is to appoint a new manager as quickly as possible, but the Board will take as much time as is necessary to secure the right person capable of representing Rangers and providing the brand of football supporters rightly expect.
We, the Board, appreciate this is a difficult time for all Rangers supporters and we thank you for your patience and know Graeme and the players will receive your full backing in the days ahead.
We thank Pedro and his backroom staff for their efforts and commitment and wish them well for the future.
