PEDRO CAIXINHA has promised Rangers are ready to obliterate Celtic’s hopes of a treble this season.
The Ibrox outfit prepared for the Scottish Cup semi-final meeting with the Hoops a week today with their second successive win, their third clean sheet in a row and their eighth game unbeaten.
After the 2-0 home success over Partick Thistle, Caixinha fired a warning at Brendan Rodgers’ side and said: “This team is always ready to beat anyone – and Celtic is going to be next.
“The history of this team is about this. We need to be ready and prepare for the game.
“The approach to the game is going to be different – it’s an Old Firm game, a knock-out game, and I like the strategic side of the game, so I’m looking forward to preparing for it.
“When we met with the players before the match, we talked to them about how we felt and we felt the team is growing in confidence, getting a pattern and an identity.
“So, we’ll keep focusing on that process.
“We know this will be a different opponent, a different match because it is a knock-out and I just hope to have 11 warriors starting the game.”
