Is Rangers manager still Pedro Caixinha?

Pedro Caixinha has been sacked as Rangers manager after just over seven months in charge at Ibrox.

The Portuguese departs with the Gers in fourth place in the Scottish Premiership after a late equaliser saw Kilmarnock earn a share of the points in a 1-1 draw in Glasgow on Wednesday. That result followed a 2-0 Betfred Cup semi-final defeat to Motherwell at Hampden on Sunday. Rangers are eight points behind league leaders Celtic and five behind second-placed Aberdeen.

The Rangers board held an unscheduled meeting on Thursday where Caixinha's future as manager was discussed. Caixinha was at Rangers' training ground at 6am on Thursday morning, but left Auchenhowie shortly before 1pm and, when asked if he was still Rangers manager, he said: "Of course I am."

However, the 46-year-old has now left the club and a statement revealed that Graeme Murty will be in charge of the squad for the trip to Murrayfield to face Hearts this weekend, live on Sky Sports. Read more at SkySports.
