Tommy Wright hits back at 'paranoid' Pedro Caixinha

Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha takes training at Ibrox

Spat: Wright has responded to Caixinha's comments.

Pedro Caixinha has added further spice to Friday's clash between St Johnstone and Rangers by claiming he would change his training times to stop Saints getting inside information on his team.

"And this year we've already played them in a pre-season friendly".

"I didn't get his team last season, it surprises me that he says I did".

"We were more focused on the details this week because we make the analysis that we can not concede so many goals and concede goals the way we are conceding them", the Portuguese said.

"It just didn't happen so I now know what "fake news" means because it didn't happen". A bemused Wright - whose side play host to Rangers at McDiarmid Park tonight, with the Perth side aiming to reclaim third spot in the Ladbrokes Premiership - is adamant that it is all a figment of Caixinha's imagination.

"We tried to second guess their team, which all managers do, but under no circumstances was I given the team or change training the day before the game because I do the same preparation, and it didn't happen".

'I think his focus should be chasing Celtic and making sure they don't get ten in a row rather than trying to play mind games and not showing respect to another manager'.

Caixinha responded: "If I can not say one team plays with the same formation and the same style of game, I can not say anything".

He said: "His mind games are working".

He suggested his Rangers counterpart should be more focused on his own team and the challenges they face.

"Because when you tell untruths about another manager, that's not showing respect, and really that should be his focus".
