Chris Sutton reacts on Twitter after Caixinha axed by Rangers

By James Black

Chris Sutton has taken a dig at Pedro Caixinha after the 46-year-old was sacked by Rangers.

The Gers confirmed Caixinha had left his role as manager on Thursday afternoon in a statement on the club website.

Caixinha was only appointed in March after Mark Warburton’s resignation and leaves Rangers without completing a full campaign in charge.

Sutton took his shot at Caixinha – referencing a previous comment by the now-former Rangers boss – as he announced Caixinha’s sacking.

“Pedro’s caravan has been moved on…He’s gone…” Sutton said on his personal Twitter account.

BT Sport pundit Sutton has been a long-time critic of the former Santos Laguna manager and has consistently called for him to be sacked as Rangers boss.

Caixinha leaves the Gers in fourth place in the Scottish Premiership – eight points behind league leaders Celtic.

Graeme Murty will take charge of the Light Blues on an interim basis while they club look for a new manager.

The former Scotland international also took charge earlier this year when Warburton resigned and now steps in for a second spell.

The Ibrox side face a daunting trip to take on Craig Levein’s Hearts at Murrayfield on Saturday in a game they need to win.

Murty, Alex McLeish and Derek McInnes are among the favourites to replace Caixinha on a permanent basis.
