Pedro Caixinha: This is who to blame for Rangers loss v Motherwell
By Danny Wright
Pedro Caixinha has taken all responsibility for Rangers’ woeful 2-0 loss against Motherwell on Sunday.
The Light Blues missed the chance of a Scottish League Cup final against Celtic next month as Louis Moult scored twice for the Well in a heated affair at Hampden Park which saw Caixinha and his counter-part Stephen Robinson sent to the stands.
Caixinha took issue with the way that his players were roughed up by the Motherwell stars on Sunday, with the incident that saw Fabio Cardoso suffer a busted nose seeming to tip the under-pressure boss over the edge.
After the game, a downbeat Ibrox boss told BT Sport in their post-match coverage that he was going to take total blame for the defeat and rued how his side let Motherwell play the game in the fashion that they wanted.
“I’m the one responsible” he said. “I’m the leader, I’m the one who prepared them, in all scene of the word.

“We didn’t manage to cope with expectations and we let the opposing team play the way they wanted.”
Rangers are yet to string together three wins in a row with Caixinha in charge after he took over the reigns in March, following Mark Warburton’s acrimonious exit from Ibrox.
Since then, the Gers haven’t come close to a good performance in the big games, with heavy losses to Celtic, a Europa League knock-out to minnows Progres and Sunday’s humiliation at Hampden.
