Pedro Caixinha Says Teams Are ‘Beginning to Respect’ Rangers After Hearts Draw

Pedro Caixinha Says Teams Are ‘Beginning to Respect’ Rangers After Hearts Draw

Pedro Caixinha insists teams are ‘beginning to respect’ Rangers after their 0-0 draw with Hearts at Ibrox today.

The Gers manager watched on as his side were frustrated by a Jambos team intent on getting away with at least a point.

Jon Daly’s team did exactly that, piling men behind the ball in an effort to limit Rangers going forward and give them a much-needed point.

And despite being disappointed in the result, Caixinha spoke post-match about opponents now ‘beginning to respect’ his team:

Caixinha’s full comments to the broadcast media haven’t yet been released, but that line should form a big part of tomorrow’s coverage of the game.

With it, the Portuguese manager is saying that opposing teams are now respecting their quality by packing men in behind the ball in an attempt to at least get a draw from the game.

But hasn’t that always been the case at Rangers? Particularly at Ibrox?

Rangers are now five points behind Celtic in the Scottish Premiership table and that’s not the start Caixinha, or anyone at the club, would have had in mind for the beginning of the campaign.
