Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha looks on

By Amir Mir

Chris Sutton is bemused as to why Rangers celebrated in such a “wild” fashion during their 2-1 win over Partick Thistle on Sunday afternoon.

Pedro Caixinha’s team secured all three points away from home but left it late to clinch the win against their Glasgow neighbours.

Barrie McKay equalised for the visitors seven minutes from time after Thistle striker Kris Doolan had opened the scoring after 14 minutes.

However, Joe Garner’s brilliant header late into stoppage time sent the Gers into wild celebrations.

The manner in which they reacted to the win did not please former Celtic man Sutton, who believes it shows how far the club have fallen.

“I’m not sure about all the celebrations as well [after the win against Partick Thistle],” Sutton told BT Sports.

“That just shows how far Rangers have come, the wild celebrations, from the bench, the players. You are getting excited about that? Come on it has been a dreadful season.

“Exactly how far Rangers have fallen.”

For the majority of the campaign, it has been a difficult season, both on and off the pitch for Rangers following their promotion to the top tier.

They are 37 points behind their bitter rivals Celtic, who were crowned Scottish Premiership champions in April.

The success of their Old Firm rivals added with their failure to show any improvements on the pitch has made it difficult for the Bears.

Caixinha was appointed as manager in March after Mark Warburton had left his post in February, with the club stating that he had resigned from his job.

The Portuguese coach will want to end the season on a high, with a tough home clash against Hearts awaiting them next Saturday.
