By Danny Wright
Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton has claimed that Rangers’ disappointing draw to Kilmarnock on Wednesday was the “best thing to happen” to them as it resulting in Pedro Caixinha being sacked less than 24 hours later.
Caretaker boss Graeme Murty led the Gers to a 3-1 comeback win at Hearts on Saturday in their first game since Caixinha was shown the exit door.
The rookie coach decided to recall Kenny Miller to the starting line-up after the veteran striker found himself banished from the first-team squad while Caixinha was in charge.
And the ex-Celtic striker responded brilliantly, scoring two goals the give the Gers a much-needed three points as the post-Caixinha era began with a bang.
Tweeting on his personal Twitter account after the game, Sutton delivered an honest verdict on the events that led up to Caixinha’s sacking and how it may benefit Rangers in the future.
