Why This Proven Manager Is An Ideal Choice To Replace Caixinha At Rangers

A few days ago, Scottish Premiership outfit, Rangers, sacked Pedro Caixinha from this post as the manager of the Glasgow based club and frankly speaking, the aforesaid staunch measure seemed to be on the cards. Caixinha’s appointment last season after the departure of Mark Warburton was a questionable move in the first place itself. As days passed by, he failed to inject resilience into the arsenal and deserved to be shown the exit door of the Ibrox Stadium.

The Portuguese’s side succumbed in all three of his Old Firm derby outings against Celtic during his reign and under his tutelage, the Gers got knocked out of the Europa League at the hands of Luxembourg minnows, Progres Niederkorn.

Apart from his timorous tactical and man-managing skills and inability to lock horns with Rangers’ arch-rivals, Celtic, for the silverware, Caixinha’s troops suffered unexpected draws and defeats and the 1-1 draw against Kilmarnock in the Premiership eventually proved to be the final nail in the coffin for him.

While Graeme Murty is appointed as the interim manager, the Light Blues are in search of a permanent manager and one of the names to have surfaced heavily is that of Derek McInnes. McInnes is currently attached to Aberdeen and his contract expires in the summer of 2020.

Signed by Aberdeen in 2013, he has done a fine job with the Dons despite having limited resources at his disposal, enabling three consecutive second-place finishes in the Scottish top division and is a proven figure in the country. Further, he won the Scottish League Cup of 2014 with them.

The interest from Rangers to make him sign on the dotted line makes perfect sense, for he is acclimatized with Scottish football. He has previously managed St Johnstone and Bristol City and despite the interest from Sunderland in the summer to secure his services, the Dandies were successful in keeping him at the Pittodrie Stadium.

However, a move to the Ibrox Stadium might be an audacious option for him personally and it would not be absurd to underline that he has the tactical and technical understanding of the game to take Rangers forward in the right direction.

The Daily Star has reported that Aberdeen are set to demand £1million to facilitate McInnes’ move to Rangers, and if the same materializes, the basic objective for him would be to turn the Teddy Bears into the second best club in the country and then attempt to surpass Celtic in the near future.
