Pedro was disaster for us, but he was/is better mgr than McCoist or Murty , Pedro and leGuen are on a par though. Both crap here

Signed during his reign yes but I would really only give him full credit for Candeias. It's well known that Jonatan Johansson identified Morelos, and I doubt Pedro would've had much, if any, knowledge of Jack before he arrived.
So all other managers identify every signing on their own?
Why on earth do clubs employ scouts then?
We should sack them all and use the money on signing more of the players the manager identifies
JJ was definitely the catalyst for signing Morelos but it was still the manager's decision
Crediting him only with his poor signings while discounting the good ones makes it look like you have a bit of an agenda

You only have to look at McCoist and Murty's post Rangers manager appointments to realise that
McCoist couldn't get another job and Murty went back to youth coaching

He spunked the best part of £7m on Pena, Herrera, Cardoso and Alves, and delivered some of the most embarassing results in our history. So yes, I probably do have an agenda. I think he's shite.

£7million on just fees. Another £5/6 on wages and pay offs.

He banned green boots though! Plus the transitional phases thing.

The sooner we all forget about Pedro’s dreadful period at Rangers, the better
Not really possible as anytime he farts we have someone desperate to post it. I've genuinely no hard feelings towards him wasn't his fault the board thought he was the right man. I'd rather see him doing well than falling to bits just because he didn't do it here.

Tough one betweem PLG, Ally and Pedro. PLG gets Europe as a big tick so he can have a pass for that.

Ally or Pedro? Dead heat for me. Pedro's time was shorter, with zero achievements to note, Allys time was longer with a few respectable moments (had us top of the league for half a season, beat Celtic twice the same season) but an absolute litany of footballing howlers, none quite as bad as Progres, but way more numerous. His record in cup competitions. Jesus christ. Malmo, Maribor, Falkirk, Dundee Utd. And they're all before demotion.

Lads, Ally McCoist was our worst ever manager and it’s not even close.
Context is massive though.

Under normal circumstance McCoist is seeing out a season in the top flight despite us being run by Whyte, going into admin, having minimal spend in the summer and making a bosman addition in January.

Pedro couldn't even see out a season despite being given a decent chunk of cash to spend in the summer and carte blance to rip up and rebuild a squad in his own design - Pedro worked at Rangers in circumstance McCoist could only dream about - in theory he isn't even lasting long enough to then be as shit as McCoist was in the lower leagues if the same circumstance had happened during his tenure.

There s plenty of lassies go to the games and pay there dough, if they want a team - well fine.
It might get more interest in the football club in general.

Why does any manager get a hard time when it’s the board who gives them the job?

But he is not really is he..if you sit back and think about it.
Standing (in a bush) in Luxembourg ranting about "offensive positional transitions,"after getting knocked out of Europe in June to Progres Neiderkorn < leading the troops in a karoake after losing to Raith Rovers in the Ramsdens Cup Final.

That was a baffeling thing to do, but you said he was the most embarrassing chapter in our history, do you not think Craig Whyte and being relegated was worse than having Pedro Caixinha as a manager?

Illogical rather than embarrassing would have been the better choice of words.

I know how we ended up with a shyster like Craig Whyte in charge, you can follow the sequence of events that led to us being in the position that a vulture like him could swoop in.

To this day I have no idea how, why, what or who led to the appointment of Pedro Caixinha as Rangers manager. Some no mark no one had heard of working in Qatar. The whole thing was beyond bizarre.

Context is important
McCoist had two seasons of no competition to build a team capable of winning the Championship
A league where he had comfortably double, possibly treble the budget of the next biggest club and in some cases 10 times bigger or more.
To fail in that context is pretty spectacular
Hence the total lack of offers after he left

Agree with that.

Thankfully we didn't have to live through Pedro in the lower leagues to validate how pish he would have been at that level, albeit the small sample size we DO have against a part time football team twas pretty fucken grim viewing indeed, and that was with a team that far surpassed the budget even McCoist had to dispose of afore mentioned plumbers and joiners like Pedro was expected to do.... and failed.... with a wage bill and budget advantage that exceeded even that McCoist oft had.

Context like McCoist losing at home to Annan and Peterhead with 5 international players in his team?

Context like failing to win the Challenge Cup in 3 attempts?

Context like losing away to Stirling Albion even though their manager was away getting married?

Pedro was a disaster but when he left we were 4th in the Premier League and were “only” 8 points off top. When Ally left we were 9 points off top spot in the Championship ffs.

The last sentence in it's self shows the context of the situations in which the two managed us.

One managed us under as sturdy an ownership as we have had and was given full backing.

The other manager us under the ownership of people who have since taken the club to court numerous times.

We should never have been in the Championship for that to be the league which one of them departed us, one worked under far more trying circumstance than the other - one worked from a foundation of sand, the other a foundation of heavy investment into him and yet one made an utter roaring lady's front bottom of it to the point we simply couldn't continue with him only months after him spending said cash - thats a far worse "management" of us - one simply couldn't be kept much longer than a period of months to build a large CV of shambolic performances, albeit even in the months they were here they put in a pretty decent effort.

Mate, we spent more money in wages when we were in the third division than we did under Pedro. So please forgive me when I think the “difficult” circumstances is a dreadful excuse, finance wise anyway.

For the money mccoist was making, for the squad of players he had, for the standard of opposition we were playing, he is hands down the worst manager we’ve ever had.
