PEDRO CAIXINHA admits he is looking forward to his Pittodrie “hell” when he takes The Rangers to face Aberdeen in the crunch “best of the rest” encounter tomorrow.
The Dons are chasing an 11th successive home victory and the Portuguese accepts his team must win in order to retain any hope of finishing second in the Premiership.
The Ibrox outfit are 12 points adrift with seven games remaining following consecutive draws with Motherwell and Kilmarnock.
Caixinha said: “Everybody says we are going to hell and I like those type of scenarios.
“Football is about challenges. The history of football started with two cities competing until they take the ball from one specific place and score one goal.
“Those moments were really violent and that’s the nature of football.
“We need to be clever, we need to have the right attitude and approach and grow with that old-style environment.
“It’s a game we must win if we want to finish second, definitely.
“And it’s also the first of the last seven fixtures. We put one challenge to ourselves, starting with this one.”
