Trevor Sinclair is desperate to see Celtic quieten Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha in Sunday’s Old Firm battle at Hampden Park.
The arch rivals go head-to-head for the fifth time this season in the semi-final of the Scottish Cup, with Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic winning three and drawing one so far.
Former England international Sinclair declared on his personal Twitter account that he was hoping to see Caixinha “get put in his place” in his first game against the Bhoys.

Caixinha has made a number of bold claims in the public domain concerning Rangers and Celtic since taking over, most notably stating his side are the biggest in Scottish football.
Now, he will look to prove that as he aims to mastermind a Gers triumph and book a place in the Scottish Cup final on May 27 as Aberdeen await following their 3-2 win over Hibernian.
The Gers will have faith that they can earn their first win against Celtic this season, after the Bhoys have drawn two of their last three games since being confirmed as league champions.
Interim boss Graeme Murty saw his side earn a 1-1 draw at Ibrox last time out against the Hoops, as veteran defender Clint Hill scored late on to earn a point.
Rangers also beat Celtic on penalties in last season’s Scottish Cup semi-final under Mark Warburton, and will be desperate to prevent Rodgers’ side from doing the treble.
