Video: Pedro Caixinha Quotes Sir Alex Ferguson When Asked About Assistant Manager Post

Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha says he is taking inspiration from Sir Alex Ferguson as the club continue in their pursuit to hire an assistant manager.

Caixinha spoke to the media this afternoon, ahead of his first game as Rangers boss on Saturday, when Hamilton travel to Ibrox.

We brought you news earlier this afternoon that Kenny Miller would only take a coaching job at the club if he could continue as a player and it seems Caixinha was equally keen to discuss his coaching staff.

Following his appointment on Sunday, the former Al-Gharafa boss admitted he was keen to bring in a ‘local’ assistant who would help him acclimatise to Scottish football.

And when asked about what attributes he was looking for when assembling a new coaching team, Caixinha mentioned a conversation he once had with ex-Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson when he visited the Premier League side’s training ground in 2007.

The 46-year-old said, “The first thing that I search and I want from my assistant coach, of course they need to know me very well.”

“I take it from Sir Alex Ferguson, when I was in Carrington for three weeks in 2007 and I asked him, ‘why do you change your assistant coach’.

“And he just told me one point – loyalty”

Caixinha added, “I said okay, one day when I become a manager I want my guys to be loyal to me. But that’s not enough, I want more.

“I want competence, I want knowledge, I want guys that challenge me, I want guys that like to be challenged and having the spirit of the mission.”

So, Rangers fans, what do you make of Caixinha’s comments?

And who would you like to see sat next to the new manager in the dugout?
