Caixinha in furious tunnel bust-up with another Celtic man during Rangers loss - report

By Danny Wright

Pedro Caixinha was anything but short of emotion on Saturday as his Rangers side succumbed to defeat against Celtic in the first Old Firm derby clash of the season at Ibrox.

At half-time the Gers boss squared up with Hoops captain Scott Brown after the midfielder looked to have elbowed Alfredo Morelos while the game was still goalless.

Now, the Glasgow Evening Times has reported that Caixinha was involved in another bust-up at the break when tempers spilled into the tunnel as he squared up to Celtic coach John Kennedy.

It is understood that both parties volleyed “angry words” at one another after Caixinha got in the face of yet another Hoops man as the red mist descended for the Portuguese boss.

The report adds that Caixinha and Kennedy had to be separated and calmed down by those in the vicinity.

Rangers didn’t do a bad job in the first-half of a game they were largely expected to lose as they managed to stop Celtic from scoring.

However not long after the interval, Tom Rogic bagged a goal which led the Bhoys to romping home to a 2-0 victory as Leigh Griffiths rounded off the tie with a stylish finish past Wes Foderingham.

It remains to be seen whether the SFA will have any input on the matters at Ibrox on Saturday.
