Motherwell boss Robinson mocks Rangers after Caixinha claim
By Danny Wright
Motherwell boss Stephen Robinson has mocked Rangers for not having to concern themselves about the Scottish League Cup final after Pedro Caixinha claimed his side will struggle to avoid a sending off against Celtic.
The Gers missed the chance of an Old Firm clash with the Hoops in the final next month after they were beaten 2-0 by Motherwell at Hampden Park on Sunday courtesy of a Louis Moult brace.
In what was a very controversial game, both Robinson and Caixinha were sent to the stands as tempers flared on the touchline, however both were lucky to have not seen any of their players sent off.
Moult, Bruno Alves and Ryan Bowman could have all easily seen red in the semi-final at the weekend, leading Caixinha to claim that the Steelmen will have someone sent off against Celtic when they clash next month.
However Robinson took that as a chance to make a swipe at the Gers, and was quoted by the Scottish Sun as saying: “Pedro doesn’t need to concern himself about the final.”

Rangers supporters were left enraged after Sunday’s showing against Motherwell and calls for Caixinha to be sacked from his post at Ibrox have grown as loud as they have ever been.
However the Portuguese manager seems very likely to remain in charge on Wednesday night when his side return to Premiership action against Kilmarnock at Ibrox.
