Rangers flop set to take the reins at Mexican giants

Rangers flop Pedro Caixinha could be set for a stunning return to management with Mexican giants Tigres, according to reports.

According to various reports in Mexico, Caixinha could replace Ricardo Ferretti as Tigres boss after almost a year without a club.

Caixinha, who lasted only 229 days at Ibrox during his disastrous spell in the dugout, was most recently in charge of fellow Liga MX side Cruz Azul but resigned in September after a dismal run of form.

Tigres were runners-up in the  2019 CONCACAF Champions League, losing to Monterrey in the final.

Based in Nuevo León, Tigres have competed in Mexico’s top flight for nearly six decades and is one of the country’s most well-supported and most successful clubs.

Caixinha is still highly-regarded in Mexico, despite his shambolic reign as Rangers manager, and the Portuguese boss is often linked with high-profile jobs in the country.

If Caixinha does get the job, the reports also claim he will be joined by Mexican icon Claudio Suarez as technical director.

The Emporer spent six years with Tigres as a player between 1999 and 2005, making well over 200 appearances.
