Ex-Celtic striker Chris Sutton believes that Pedro Caixinha will be worrying about his Rangers future after Sunday’s 2-0 loss to Motherwell.
The Light Blues were dumped out of the Scottish League Cup thanks to two goals from Louis Moult in a pulsating game that was shrouded with controversy.
Gers senior man Caixinha and Motherwell boss Stephen Robinson were both sent to the stands after a second-half flashpoint following Fabio Cardoso being forced off the pitch with a bloodied face.
In what was a very physical affair, Rangers had no answer to the Well, and as a result will miss out on the chance to face Celtic in the final next month.
After the game, Sutton slammed the Gers for their futile performance, as well as claiming that chairman Dave King may want to swing the axe and show Caixinha the door.
“No bite from toothless Rangers. Louis Moult double. Pedro sent off and under pressure,” he said on his personal Twitter account.

Since taking charge of Rangers in March, Caixinha is yet to string together three wins in a row after having the chance to do just that on Sunday.
Up next for the Gers is a return to Scottish Premiership action on Kilmarnock at Ibrox on Wednesday.
It will no doubt be a tough ask to respond from such a demoralising blow against Motherwell, but Caixinha seems like he will have no choice or risk the fact of losing his job.
