As his caravan heads off a cliff Ally McCoist has jumped to the defence of Pedro Caixinha.
The fifth best coach in Qatar has endured the worst week of his Ibrox tenure with everything that happens in Vegas getting relayed directly to the sports desks of the Daily Record and The Sun.
Whatever Pedro attempts it is being undermined by a core of Scottish and English players who can see straight through the bluster of the former bull fighter.
Watching things implode from inside is torturing some former Rangers (IL) stars like Barry Ferguson but for some others like McCoist a positive spin has to be put on every disastrous result.
In an exchange with Alan Brazil this morning Brendan Rodgers got some blame for Sevco dropping points to Hearts, Hibs and Partick Thistle.
AM: It’s very very early still Al, I’ve got to say
AB: No, say that to me with a straight face
AM No it is, it is, I mean. I actually believe that there’s been an improvement, there is certainly in my eye an improvement in Rangers this season but the one thing that has gone against him I think that Brendan at Celtic has equally improved Celtic.
McCoist will slip into his BT Sport hat tonight to provide analysis of tonight’s Hamilton v Sevco match alongside Chris Sutton.
