The Gers chief came under pressure over the summer after Rangers' disastrous Europa League exit at the hands of Luxembourg's Progres Niederkorn, but he is working his way back into the good books with fans.
And Caixinha, who believes Rangers were just playing with high speed in the beginning of the season which was evident from their 6-0 rout of Dunfermline Athletic in the Scottish League Cup in early August, feels his side are now not merely dependent on speed to control games.
Caixinha changed around half of his squad having brought in 11 new signings over the summer, whilst the likes of Philippe Senderos, Clint Hill, Andy Halliday, Michael O'Halloran, Martyn Waghorn and Joe Garner all left Ibrox.
"I have spoken often with Jose since taking this job".
"Talking to him totally confirmed my belief that I'm on the right track, especially because first of all he is the best". In those days, I was an assistant and I was looking for knowledge and making sure I was heading in the right direction.
"You need to look for the best". He had asked me to call Jose and ask him if he would speak to the guy for five minutes.
He explained: "I didn't notice six months had already passed - and I am sometimes so obsessed and so involved in my work that I don't count or hear the amount of time that has passed". He is the only one in football - there is no one better. His advice has helped me totally. We don't normally speak like ...'this situation has happened, what should I do?' It's more about direction and conviction, how to be convinced about the methodology you use and the way you use it.
