shower drain, tiling over existing tile floor

I am trying to tile over an existing tile floor in my shower. I had to replace the drain as it was corroded beyond repair. I intend to use RedGard over the existing tile but am wondering how to ensure my new drain is sealed to/with the new layer of tile flooring. Suggestions?

The waterproofing is underneath the current tile, Redgard will do nothing. Learning about how shower pans are built will assist in your endeavors. Usually, repairing a shower drain involves removing some wall tile and the floor and rebuilding. I don't know how you would replace a drain and waterproof with out a new membrane. Redgard is not a substitute.

Just a really, really bad plan, and never going to work.
