"But the decision was obviously something that was under consideration for a while. We are not deaf and blind."Johnston acknowledged there will be a cost to pay off the current coaching team and employ replacements, but said Caixinha has left a squad which needs only minor alterations.He said: "There are financial implications but in the circumstances they had to be seconded, to the best interests of the club.
"My own view is that we have a better squad than people think and perhaps a new management team will get more out of them."A lot of Rangers Jordan Matthews Jersey fans thought the players we brought in during the summer were actually positive."I don't think we have seen the best of them and I would like to think that the new management team will be able to get more out of them."In many ways that's what Celtic did when they brought in Brendan Rodgers."
Johnston confirmed that Mark Allen, appointed director of football in the summer, will be heavily involved in Womens Jordan Matthews Jersey appointing a new manager.
