Pedro’s Progres in numbers

Sharing is caring!

Pedro Caixinha has been at Rangers since March 11, 2017, a day later he watched the best squad in Scotland earn an unlikely point at Paradise whilst Graeme Murty was in charge.

He took control of Sevco for the next game vs Hamilton and won 4-0, oh how the Peepul sang.

The Hamilton honeymoon was ended a week later when Motherwell took a point of the Newco at Ibrox in a 1-1 draw.

Perpetual whipping boys Kilmarnock drew blank as usual but so did The Rangers in a 0-0 stalemate.

All was well apart from ripping the stands and toilets to pieces at Pittodrie as Scotland’s Shame scored 3 late goals after being out classed for 70 minutes by Aberdeen.

Kenny Miller got one foot in the door for another year at Mordor that day so it wasn’t all bad.

The Institution then beat Partick at home 2-0 and Pedro we were told was on an unbeaten streak!

Celtic then came to Hampden and wrecked the party outclassing Pedro’s squad top to toe in a 2-0 win, it could have been much more.

A week later Pedro had the chance to stamp some authority at Poundland, instead Celtic gubbed Them 5-1 in humiliating circumstances, they were lucky it wasn’t much more.

With the streak over Rangers went to Firhill for one of those pitch invasions saved for a crowd of 8000 people, Partick was beaten again 2-1.

With all the focus on Celtic’s impending InVIncible season, Rangers came up against Cathro’s Hearts and again were 2-1 victors.

All was well until Aberdeen won 2-1 at Ibrox for the first time in 20 something years, no one can remember that far back, it predates EBTs.

With no one watching the Peepul beat St. Johnstone 2-1 to end the season to Tina Turner and howls of WATP.

Fast forward an off season all of 10 days long, 7 million quid spent and the best squad in the country was back.

All started well beating Progres Niederkorn 1-0 in front of a packed Ibrox, the old days of European glory (hunting) were back at Govan.

Then the wheels fell off to fits of laughter and spilled bowls of jelly and ice cream across bonny Alba!

The 2-0 loss away to the 4th best team in Luxembourg has rightly been described as the worst European result in not just Scottish, but British football’s history.

After attacking their own team bus, fresh from bathing in beer and mocking the Lisbon Lions, the Peepul returned home, played a few friendlies, grabbed a wig or two and set out their shop for stopping 7 in a row, or as Dave King would say 3 in a row.

First came Motherwell and their old friends from Hampden duly pointed to the spot when a goal from open play looked beyond Them.

Neil Lennon’s Hibernian then went behind inside 2 minutes, Simon Murray hit back on 21 minutes and then Tavernier helped Wes ship another on 39 minutes.

109 minutes into their season Sevco fell behind Celtic and I will wager will never be level again let alone ahead.
