PEDRO CAIXINHA says that he wants to instill confidence in his players from the top to the bottom of the squad.

The Gers boss was speaking to the press at the Rangers Football Centre today to preview the match against Motherwell at Fir Park on Sunday.

He said:”When I am working at any club, I always think that my players and my squad are the best.

“I need to represent the club like that and I need to spread that feeling from the bottom to the top and from the top to the bottom.

“If I don’t think like that in representing Rangers today, or any of the other clubs that I have before coming here, I am just a guy sitting on my chair letting time pass me by.

“I am not like that and I want that feeling to spread to people to.”

The Gers boss was confirmed as manager in March this year and worked to assess his squad at the end of last season before rebuilding his team for this season.

“When I arrived here, I assessed the squad. That was one of my responsibilities and to take decisions¬†regarding to how I want to organise a squad at a club like Rangers. First of all, I wanted to bring character and men.

“I wanted to bring personalities who know that only acting as a team can they play at this football club.

“The second point is being able to not need to coach the game for them too much. We just want to highlight to them what we want them to do within each moment of the game.

“We need to be very strong from the beginning of games and we have been reproducing that well in the last two games, against Watford and Sheffield.

“We need to also know how to control the game and the tempo of the game.”
