'Class clown' - Sutton savages Caixinha after Rangers axe in brutal Twitter video
By James Black
Former Celtic star Chris Sutton has hammered Pedro Caixinha after his sacking by Rangers – calling him the “most embarrassing manager in Rangers’ history.”
Caixinha was axed by the Ibrox giants on Thursday after the Gers slipped to fourth place in the Scottish Premiership and Sutton hasn’t held back with his views.
The 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock on Wednesday night was the final nail in the coffin of Caixinha’s Ibrox career and he sacked after an emergency board meeting was called on Thursday morning.
BT Sport pundit Sutton has been calling for Caixinha to be sacked for months – and finally got his wish on Thursday when the Rangers board wielded the axe.
“The class clown; the walking, talking contradiction…he had to go,” Sutton said in a brutal video posted on BT Sport Football’s official Twitter account on Thursday afternoon.

“The Rangers board had no choice.
“He was probably the most embarrassing manager in the history of Rangers Football Club.”

Caixinha was only appointed in March on a three-year-deal but leaves a little over seven months after replacing Mark Warburton.
Graeme Murty will again take interim charge – for the second time in 2017 – as the club’s board begin the search for their third permanent boss this year.
The Light Blues will face Hearts on Saturday in their first match following Caixinha’s dismissal and will need to big performance or risk sliding further down the Scottish Premiership table.
With Bruno Alves, Ryan Jack, Fabio Cardoso, Lee Wallace and Graham Dorrans all potentially missing the clash with Hearts, Murty will need to get the most out of what he has available against Craig Levein’s side.
