Earlier this month, Celtic manager Rodgers was quoted as saying by The Telegraph that Old Firm rivals Rangers are contenders for the Scottish Premiership title this season.
As reported by The Telegraph, the Ibrox outfit’s outlay in the summer transfer window was £8 million, while Celtic’s was £5.5m.
Rangers boss Caixinha has hit back at Rodgers, pointing out his investment in the squad since he was appointed the Celtic boss in the summer of 2016 following the departure of Ronny Deila at the end of the 2015-16 campaign.
“How much did he invest in his first season here?” The Herald quotes Caixinha as saying. “You might want to have a look at the numbers.
“Or if you want you can add the two seasons – the previous one and this one - and afterwards draw your own conclusions.
“I don’t need to answer to what he said, what he thinks or whatever. I just need to focus on my team and my club.”
Celtic have the best squad in Scotland, and it is hard to see Rangers challenging the Hoops for the Scottish Premiership title this season.
The Gers, though, should be aiming to at least finish second and maybe push their Old Firm rivals.
Rangers and Celtic will face each other at Ibrox in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday afternoon.
