Celtic fans react on Twitter to reported talks about Caixinha future at Rangers
By James Black
Rangers have called an emergency board meeting to discuss the future of manager Pedro Caixinha – and Celtic fans on Twitter are jokingly hoping Caixiha comes out with a contract extension.
Sky Sports reported on their live daily blog on Thursday [11:47am] that the board were holding an emergency meeting to discuss Caixinha’s position as manager.
After the 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock on Wednesday night, Caixinha has the Gers languishing in fourth place in the Scottish Premiership.
Celtic currently have an eight-point lead over the Ibrox side with the sides next meeting on December 30th.
Rangers have suffered a number of humiliating results under the former Santos Laguna boss with the 5-1 defeat by Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic and a Europa League elimination by Progres Niederkorn top of the list.

Caixinha completely overhauled the Rangers squad over the summer bringing in 11 new players and getting rid of 12.
The likes of Bruno Alves, Fabio Cardoso, Graham Dorrans and Alfredo Morelos have all started well but Aaron Nemane and Dalcio have barely featured while Ryan Jack has been sent off three times already.
Mexican duo Eduardo Herrera and Carlos Pena have struggled with the pace and physicality of the Scottish game and have not done as well as first hoped.
