Modest Pedro Caixinha claims that he doesn’t know where Sevco are in the Premiership table!
When he arrived at Ibrox last season the fifth best coach in Qatar was happy to go into intricate detail about opponents, explaining their set pieces in detail and being able to name the Aberdeen side to face the best squad in Scotland.
Back-to-back wins over Ross County and Dundee have sent delusions off the radar with a four goal win at Partick Thistle on Friday night putting Sevco top of the table with Radio Scotland planning a special three hour tribute featuring Derek Ferguson, Alex Rae, Craig Paterson and Barry Ferguson.
A Europa League defeat from Progres Niederkorn plus a lesson handed out by Neil Lennon have been airbrushed from the history books with Alfredo Morelos banging in the goals to attract interest from Ipswich Town.
Beating Thistle by four goals is now expected but even if they go top of the table Caixinha will reign in his celebrations until the SPFL presentation party in May.
“I don’t care about that,” he told The Sun when asked about topping the table on Friday night.
“I don’t know what position we are in. By the end of the season, we will count up the points.
“If the count allows us to celebrate we will, and we will celebrate hard but for now I will concentrate on the match by match situation.
“I know the points we have and the goal difference we have, which I am not happy with but I’m just focused on winning the next match.
“I always try to do the same thing, and that is to focus one match at a time, so the next one is going to be most important.
“We have one principle. Focus on ourselves. We give importance to the match day as long as we win.
“I don’t care about other results as long we add three points. Focus on the details, the process and concentrate on the next match.”
Like all of their opponents so far this season except Hibs, tomorrow’s opponents are in the bottom half of the table with Thistle picking up just one point from their first five matches.
