Aberdeen are gunning for a third consecutive runners-up finish but Rangers chairman Dave King has admitted he expected his team to finish a "strong second" before the start of the season.
The Portuguese has already been filled in on what to expect from what is traditionally a fiery encounter.
"They were greeting us using their fingers to make gestures-I used to count them and say, 'We are losing 20-0!' But I like these kinds of environments".
However, Lee Hodson is fit again and likely to come back into the side.
Caixinha is still settling into life at Rangers as he tries to improve the side, a job made more hard with injuries to key defenders.
'The players need to see this game and all the games until the end (of the season) as challenges.
'And it's also the first of the last seven fixtures.
"I am not better, I'm not worse than everyone, but I am different and I think you need to accept the differences". That's how I approach life.
"Everybody says that we are going to hell and I like those hostile scenarios. But I'd never be critical of another manager". "This game for us is important, it is definitely crucial if you want to still get second position, so it's a challenge we are glad to have and I'm counting on the players to play it the way we want them to play it".
"Of course, it's also important to realise that in this period Rangers was not playing in the Scottish Premier League".
The young pair played the full 90 minutes and helped Rangers to keep a clean sheet against Kille, with the game ending in a goalless draw.
Rangers head north to Aberdeen on Sunday afternoon to face the hostile and intimidating atmosphere of Pittodrie Stadium in what Pedro Caixinha has described as a game that must be won if the Ibrox men are to finish second in the Premiership.
"We are going to play against one strong side", he said.
"If we can win on Sunday then 15 points clear with six games to go would make it very hard for Rangers to catch us".
Caixinha's third-placed side have drawn twice in a row, accumulating five points out of a possible nine from the manager's three matches at the helm. Download it today and continue to enjoy STV News wherever you are.
