Pedro Caixinha has taken over from Graeme Murty at Ibrox this week and seems full of confidence he can make a success of his new role, despite being new to Scottish football and plans to bring in an assistant who knows the Premiership, reports BBC Sport.

The Portuguese manager is expected to begin the search for his assistant this week with a series of interviews after several former Rangers players have been linked with the role at Ibrox.

The 46-year-old is no stranger to managing in a country that’s relatively new to him having had success in Mexico, despite never visiting the country until he took over at Santos Laguna.

Caixinha could be helped in his search for a new number two by his agent, former Rangers midfielder Pedro Mendes, and has already earmarked a second-placed finish and a trophy this season as his main goals, with the Ibrox outfit set to face arch-rivals Celtic in their Scottish Cup semi-final clash next month.
