Pedro Caixinha has told Glasgow Rangers’ official website that he will continue to play his side’s youngsters, even though the pressure is mounting on the team.

Rangers lost 2-1 at Ibrox against Aberdeen last night, in what was a highly disappointing performance.

Rangers had slipped two goals behind, before Martyn Waghorn’s goal did threaten a comeback.

However, it wasn’t to be, as Rangers crashed to another disappointing defeat.

Caixinha is already facing questions from the Ibrox crowd, with his start to life in Glasgow not going entirely to plan.

However, the Portuguese boss insists that he will continue to stick by Rangers’ young players.

“We tried to give our best with a lot of young players on the pitch who really did fantastically and they showed that the future of this club and youth system is going in the right direction,” Caixinha said.

“The young boys will be part of the team for sure in the next match but we are about to finish for the season and now I have assessed and have a clear idea about who we can count on.”

Rangers’ final match of the season comes against St. Johnstone on Sunday.

Rangers played the likes of Myles Beerman, David Bates and Jamie Barjonas against Aberdeen last night.
