Pedro Caixinha Explains His 2015 Video Congratulating Celtic

New Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha was officially paraded in-front of the Scottish media this afternoon and has been quick to explain his video congratulating Celtic from several years ago.

Caixinha sent the short message recorded message on behalf of his then club Santos Laguna after Celtic had secured the 2015 Scottish Premiership title, and he probably wasn’t expecting to be Rangers manager any time soon.

However, rather than letting the matter fester, Caixinha swiftly put things to bed today, telling members of the Scottish press exactly what happened:

He wasn’t a closet Celtic supporter or a follower of the Hoops; he was merely following orders.
