Pedro Caixinha knows his aim is to make Rangers the top team in Scotland — and said yesterday that he has a “totally clear” idea of how he plans to move towards that.
Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes this week told Caixinha he would soon find out that his job was to finish above Celtic after the Rangers boss questioned whether the Dons could maintain their run of Premiership runners-up spots next season.
But Caixinha, who claims he cleared the air with McInnes, is in no doubt about his task and he is stepping up his rebuilding work in the coming weeks. “Rangers always look to be first,” he said.
“Rangers always look to be the best team in the country. Rangers want to be big again and that’s what we are working on.
“We are not worried about second position, we are worried about being the first ones, and that’s what we are working on. We know that is costing a lot of time, work and resources, but that’s what we are working on.
“When we came here, we knew what a massive job we needed to do, and we are doing it.”
