Al-Gharafa have confirmed that Pedro Caixinha has left the club and that an agreement has been reached for the manager to join Rangers.

In a statement, the Qatari club confirmed that a deal had been made which was in their "financial interests."

Rangers haven't confirmed anything yet - we might get some form of confirmation today, but an official unveiling is likely tomorrow, so they may hold off over it until then. This one, however, is now confirmed as done and dusted - so get your matador capes at the ready.

Caixinha won't be in charge at the weekend, however - Graeme Murty will take one last game in charge to face down Celtic at Parkhead before the Portuguese coach gets to work on the squad for the rest of the season.
