Pedro says former summer target is a 'great player'

In another surprising twist during the build up to tomorrow’s clash, Rangers’ manager Pedro Caixinha has exalted the virtues of Hearts and former Rangers star Kyle Lafferty, begging the conclusion as to why he did not snap him up when he was available.

The Northern Irish international signed on the dotted line for the Gorgie side following weeks of speculation over his return to Ibrox, and Pedro has waxed lyrical over his qualities.

He said:

“Lafferty, as everyone knows is a great player, so it is a different challenge, a tough challenge."

One could argue it is pre-match gamesmanship, and trying to psych out an opponent, but Caixinha does not really have previous for this. So it really does make us wonder why he went for the likes of Herrera, Candeias and Dalcio when a free option and a Rangers fan was readily available who he judges as a great player.

Hearts travel to Ibrox on Saturday hoping to kick start their season, with Rangers doing likewise. The fallout from last weekend continues and a solid win at home would do wonders to settle things down even just a little.


  1. Because he was absolutely pish when he was here last can you no remember that???? Pedro was only being respectful

  2. I know think Pedro is losing it,i do hope he can keep it together but i fear for Pedros mind set now...

  3. Big deal, Lafferty is a Rangers man but fit enough to wear the famous blue jersey again ? Think not, Lafferty is rank and l will speak for a few bears in saying thank god we never got him back

  4. Ped losing it, Ped never had it to loose. This is how Ped acted in Mexico too
