Caixinha wants Rangers squad to keep calm and carry on

By Andy Newport

Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha has urged his anxious side to relax after watching them scrape into the Betfred Cup semi-finals. Gers claimed their place in today's draw by beating Partick Thistle 3-1 after extra-time.

But they should have got the job done inside 90 minutes, with Daniel Candeias especially guilty after he managed to round Jags keeper Ryan Scully and still fail to find the net.

The Portuguese wideman made amends, though, putting Gers ahead early during extra-time before Eduardo Herrera made the result safe.

The Mexican's compatriot Carlos Pena marked his first start for Gers with the opener 10 minutes after half-time but Kris Doolan forced the additional half-hour with his last-gasp leveller.

Caixinha said: "You can see the boys are working really hard. When the second goal doesn't come, they try too hard and maybe they rush the final pass.

"They need to slow down. Daniel's chance is what I am talking about. He was rushing too much.

"You could see the confidence after we went two goals up in extra-time."

Thistle boss Alan Archibald said: "Disappointment is the over-riding emotion. I'm a bit bemused, I didn't see that coming at the start of extra-time.

"I thought we finished the game really strongly. Probably the worst thing that could have happened was the final whistle because I felt we were strong and Rangers were sitting off us. I thought we deserved our goal at the time."
