Chris Sutton responds when asked if Rangers should sack Caixinha
By Harvey Byrne
Outspoken pundit and former Celtic man Chris Sutton has told that he believes Pedro Caixinha needs more time at Rangers, but that could all change if the poor results continue.
The 46-year-old Portuguese boss has been in charge of the Ibrox giants since March after taking over from caretaker Graeme Murty.
It hasn’t been the best of starts for Caixinha and this season alone he has suffered humiliation in the Europa League alongside a defeat, a draw and a victory in their first three Premiership matches despite adding as many as 10 players to their squad over the summer.
Now, Sutton, who is never one to hold back against Rangers usually has admitted that he feels Caixinha needs more time in charge of the Ibrox side, but that he has to get up and running soon.
“No, no I agree with what you say, he needs time,” told Sutton speaking on BT Sport’s Twitter page on Sunday afternoon when asked by Terry Butcher if Caixinha should be sacked.

“I wonder what the tipping point is though. It’s not going to help him if they lose today is it? Or another poor performance and you have to say Dave King has invested and he’s given him the players he wanted, so he has to get up and running.”

Rangers are currently preparing to face ninth placed side Ross County at Victoria Park on Sunday afternoon.
A win for the Gers could see them move up to fourth place in the league ahead of the international break, while a defeat would see them drop to eighth with four points separating them from the bottom.
