PEDRO CAIXINHA reckons the team spirit in the Ibrox ranks shone through as Rangers beat Dundee on Saturday.

The Light Blues were comfortable 4-1 winners over Neil McCann’s side as they recorded their third Premiership victory of the campaign.

And boss Caixinha was pleased with the reaction of his players as they gave the home crowd something to celebrate.

He said: “We started having a look at it in pre-season. We analysed, not only the moments of the game, but the way we were celebrating the goals, so it is very important for us to celebrate together.

“I told them that situation after I had seen them celebrate a couple of goals, so it really means and shows our team spirit as in that moment, everyone is enthusiastic, happy and involved in it, and I really believe when teams celebrate together and celebrate enthusiastically, there is a strong spirit among the group.

“The boys played a good game, and the positives were much more than the points we didn’t like. Winning, and winning by four goals is something which is very, very good.

“The boys who needed to score goals, scored goals to keep that level of confidence, so overall we need to be pleased.

“The quality of the play was very good. We maybe had opportunities to score a few more goals, but the quality we arrived in the last third in was okay, though some things regarding to the starting and ending attacking positions, we need to improve.”

Victory over the Dees was another boost for Caixinha as Rangers made it third time lucky on home soil this term.

Monday marked a milestone for the Portuguese at Ibrox and he is enjoying the challenge of revitalising the Light Blues.

Caixinha told RangersTV: “I didn’t notice six months had already passed – and I am sometimes so obsessed and so involved in my work that I don’t count or hear the amount of time that has passed.

“I am just looking forward to preparing the next match, and that is what I am really, really focussed on. I am really enjoying it and I am really looking forward to delivering a team the fans enjoy and the fans are glad to support.

“I need to do that on a daily basis and already six months have passed – I am really happy to be working in this massive club, and I am in the sort of job I dreamt about, so it is a case of living it every day to make this football club and this team bigger and bigger and bigger to get back into the position we want to be in.

“It is going to take time, it is going to take hard work, but we don’t care about that.”
