Pedro ‘the winner’ Caixinha has fired out a title warning to Celtic.
The fifth best coach in Qatar has watched his side follow up a draw with Marseilles by beating Sheffield Wednesday following on from the Europa League KO by Progres Niederkorn of Luxembourg.
Caixinha took a vow of silence following the 2-0 defeat in Luxembourg, restricting his comments to Rangers TV but is now back in full flow.
After the win over Sheffield Wednesday he told the Daily Record: â€œAt this club the only option is winning. Thatâ€™s why it was important for us to conclude the week like this – with the result and the performance and how we controlled the game.
â€œWhat has changed? I donâ€™t need to answer to you. You just look at the match report and see the players and you see the difference.
â€œOf course we needed to change the personality and character of the players. And having men in our squad now we have it.â€�
He added: â€œWe have players who are terrific on the training pitch but when they get in a game they donâ€™t do the same.
â€œBut now we have players who train hard, work hard and play hard. Thatâ€™s the main difference.
â€œBut we know we were not the worst in those moments. We are not the best now. We need to keep working and focus
â€œI told you I am not a magician but I am someone with a strong mentality and a winning mentality to take this club forward.
â€œBut we need time and we know we have the right tools now. Iâ€™m not a guy who gets worried about the past.â€�
It seems that Sevco fans have also forgotten the past with the knock out from Progres Niederkorn following on from a third place finish in the SPFL.
Back to back defeats from Celtic at Ibrox and Hampden demolished the myth of the best squad in the country forcing Caixinha into the transfer market.
Over their five year existence Sevco have lost Â£10m a year without any major spending in the transfer market.
Having paid out around Â£7m on transfer fees plus agent fees and signing on fees the Europa League failure will hit the company hard.
With only Â£400,000 coming in, in three stages, for the sale of Barrie McKay the company is increasingly reliant on the three bears to prop up the house of cards.
