Less than 24 hours after taking responsibility for his side’s 2-0 defeat from Motherwell in the semi-final of the Betfred Cup Pedro Caixinha has decided to blame the players!
That U-turn seems certain to bring a halt to his time at Ibrox with Graeme Murty on stand-by to take over as caretaker manager.
Pedro Caixinha accuses Rangers players of embarrassing the club.

Since arriving and imposing his Latin ways onto the best squad in Scotland a rift has developed with Caixinha cutting the close season break down to 10 days with captain Lee Wallace missing out on his honeymoon.
After losing 2-0 to Celtic last month the fifth best coach in Qatar accused the Scottish players of not welcoming their new mainly Mexican and Portuguese team-mates.
Kenny Miller hasn’t made a first team appearance since the defeat from Celtic.
Once a manager turns on his players there is rarely any way back with Caixinha’s departure now just a matter of when rather than if.
