Newly appointed Glasgow Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha has admitted that he has held talks with fringe attacker Joe Dodoo, with a hint that the 21-year-old could be a part of his thinking at Ibrox.

The Portuguese trainer has a big job on his hands to get the historic club back competitive against Old Firm rivals Celtic and has taken over at the Scottish club following Mark Warburton’s exit.

Caixinha will oversee his first game in charge of Rangers on Saturday afternoon as the Glaswegian side face Hamilton Accies.

The home faithful will be keen to see what team and formation the Portuguese fields in the clash and the new man has hinted that fringe players could be brought back into the mix.

Dodoo joined Rangers last year but has not made an impression at Ibrox, starting only two games in the league for the club and not featuring at all in 2017.

However, Caixinha has revealed that he has held talks with the attacker and that he is willing to give the former England under-18s man another opportunity.

“All the players belong to one squad,” the Portuguese boss said at a press conference, as reported on the club’s official website.

“That feeling of belonging is something that they really need. Do you know which player I was meeting with before I came here [to the press conference]? Joe Dodoo. How many minutes has he played? I treat them all the same.”
