Rangers suffered another major defeat under Pedro Caixinha on Sunday, beaten 2-0 by Motherwell in the Scottish League Cup semi-final.
The Steelmen were the better side over the 90 minutes and a classy double from striker Louis Moult gave the underdogs a famous victory and the chance of significant silverware when they face Celtic in November’s final.
It was seen as a must-win match for Caixinha who has failed almost every major test of his management since arriving at the club in March. Incredibly, under the Portuguese, Rangers have still not won more than two matches in a row.
That kind of inconsistency doesn’t go down well with Light Blues supporters and many are now losing patience. The ones who are not outwardly calling for him to go are at least coming to terms with the fact his time is nearly up in Glasgow.
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his future after the defeat…
Caixinha picks Pena, brings on an unproven loanee off the bench, wastes Dorrans as a defensive anchor. Deserves to be blamed.

You can feel it now. The manager – nice guy – has lost both (some of) the players and now many of the moderate fans. When, not if.

Its embarrassing. I'm sorry but its time for Caixinha to go. He's short everywhere, tactics, teamwork, morale. But who? #rangers

Dismantled by a man we were too stubborn to sign. Whoever signed Caixinha needs sectioned! Shambles!

What is clear next time the board choose a manager should send the one who chose both Warburton and Caixinha to the other part of the world

Time for the erratic and underachieving Caixinha to go. Complete gamble that has shown no reward
