Jim White Says Pedro Caixinha isn’t Close to Quick Management Return

Jim White Says Pedro Caixinha isn’t Close to Quick Management Return

Jim White says Pedro Caixinha isn’t close to a quick return to management after leaving Rangers.

The Portuguese manager was sacked by the Ibrox club just over four weeks ago after making a difficult start to his first full season in charge.

Rangers have been on the lookout for his replacement since then, with a number of names mentioned, including Derek McInnes, Michael O’Neill and Henning Berg among others.

But it looked like Caixinha had moved quickly to sort out his future despite his old team taking their time to replace him.

Reports yesterday suggested that he’d been in talks with Mexican side Cruz Azul with a view to becoming their next gaffer.

However, Sky Sports and talkSPORT presenter White claims Caixinha said that there’s been no contact with any club about where he’ll be managing next:

So Caixinha is still unemployed and on the lookout – just like his old employers.

Caixinha lasted just over seven months in the Ibrox hotseat after replacing Mark Warburton, but he has knowledge with a number of foreign clubs and is perhaps better suited to a job in Mexico or somewhere similar.
