Rangers respond to claims over Caixinha sacking - report

By James Black

Rangers have rubbished claims that they have failed to agree a severance package with Pedro Caixinha, stifling his chance of a job in Mexico, according to a report.

The Daily Record claim a deal was agreed between chairman Dave King and the ex-Ibrox boss, and that any hold up is with Caixinha’s legal team.

The 54-times Scottish champions sacked the 46-year-old last Thursday only seven months into a three-year contract after the Gers fell to fourth in the Scottish Premiership.

The Gers had suffered a series of embarrassing results under Caixinha including a Europa League exit to Luxembourg minnows Progres Niederkorn and a 5-1 Old Firm demolition by Celtic.

Caixinha left Ibrox along with his backroom staff of Jose Belman, Pedro Malta and Helder Baptista with Graeme Murty being put in temporary charge for the second time this year.

Derek McInnes is the bookies’ favourite to replace Caixinha after the Light BLues passed over the Aberdeen boss when they opted to appoint Caixinha in March.

Next up for the Gers is the visit of Partick Thistle on Saturday afternoon as they look to close the six-point gap to Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic.

Murty is likely to still be in charge of the Glasgow giants when Alan Archibald’s Jags make the short journey to Ibrox as the Ibrox board take their time to get the right man as the club’s seventeenth permanent manager.
