Rangers do not intend to sack Portuguese manager Pedro Caixinha after a humiliating Europa League exit at the hands of Luxembourg’s fourth best team but do accept they now need to reform the entire infrastructure of the club, Sportsmail understands.
The club are sympathetic to the view that the timing of the match with Progres Niederkorn, to whom they lost 2-1 on aggregate, should be taken into consideration, coming just two weeks after the players’ return to pre-season training.
Caixinha, who is beginning his first full season at the helm, has signed eight new players and there is an acceptance from the top of the club that they have had no chance to bond as a unit.

But the result certainly calls into question Caixinha’s decision to bring a number of Portuguese players, who will face the Scottish winter a far more alien environment than Luxembourg in mid-summer.
The performance against the Luxembourgians suggests that the new group are no better than the team which finished 39 points behind Celtic last season.
Having presided over May’s nightmare 5-1 drubbing by Celtic, there are many among the Rangers support who believe his four-month reign is already doomed.
Caixinha, though, is refusing to panic and says he will continue with the plans he has put in place for the new season.
Rangers accept that they need an entire overhaul of their infrastructure, ahead of their second season in Scotland’s top flight.
While the focus amid their financial crisis, has been on getting back into the Premiership, scouting and youth development has been badly neglected and the club will look to develop young players as it has in the past.
The club is only just emerging from the shadow of Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley, who last month surrendered the predatory deal he made with a previous Rangers board to take 93 pence for every £1 of club merchandising sold in his Sports Direct stores.
