Pressure is mounting on Pedro Caixinha after Sevco crashed 1-0 to a makeshift St Johnstone side at Murray Park today.
Adding to the embarrassment was a first half incident in which Nico Kranjcar was asked to leave the field while screaming at the referee.
A month after fans were celebrating Dave King’s mythical victory over Mike Ashley things have gone downhill rapidly for the fifth best coach in Qatar.

‘If’ players are openly calling Pedro Caixinha ‘The Fraud’ we’re done. We will have a shambles compiled of Warburton and Pedro dross. Scary.

Caixinha hadn’t said a word in public since the Europa League exit to Progres Niederkorn but spoke out tonight to the club website.
“There is nothing to be shocked or alarmed about,â€� he claimed. â€œIf the team was not producing or the team was not playing or giving the philosophy we want from them, then I would be worried.
â€œThe boys are getting along, most of them are getting into the same rhythm and, for sure, on Saturday we will be better, next Sunday we will be better and most definitely the following Sunday we will be better for our target which is August 6.â€�
Most social media reports claimed that Sevco struggled to put together any chances with Callum Hendry, son of Colin, scoring the only goal of the game ten minutes from the full time whistle.
On Sunday Sevco face Marseilles in a glamour friendly with only a trip to play Sheffield Wednesday arranged before the opening SPFL match at Motherwell.
One piece of good news is the departure of Matt Crooks to League One aces Northampton Town for an undisclosed fee.
