24 hours on and Rangers still have not put any Pedro Caixinha material from yesterday’s farcical press conference on display, leading to claims of a ‘media blackout’ from some quarters of the support.
Perhaps Rangers’ media team or Digital Content department was taking the day off, and who can blame them, but yesterday’s presser in which Pedro accused his players of everything under the sun has effectively not been endorsed by the club or its media channels who have skipped it entirely and instead focused on tomorrow’s clash with Steve Clarke’s Killie.
In truth, it is probably for the best – there is only so much lunacy us Rangers fans can take, and while we are sure the team and manager will get the right level of support at Ibrox tomorrow night, nevertheless the underlying grumbles about the situation at present are only going to grow.
But this is the first time we can remember a press conference by player or manager being completely ignored via all digital channels and not even being referred to in any sense officially.
To compound Pedro’s troubles, Clarke’s Killie will be out to impress their new manager, so while their team is hardly marquee, ‘new manager’ syndrome is a powerful incentive and Rangers will have their work cut out to secure all three points.
