Pedro Caixinha walking the tightrope after humiliating Europa League exit

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 05 July 2017, 11:21

Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha is under immense pressure following one of the most humiliating results in the club's history.

The Gers, who were making their first appearance in Europe for six years, crashed out of the Europa League on Tuesday night at the hands of Luxembourg minnows Progres Niederkorn - a side that had never won a European game in 13 previous attempts - who overcame a 1-0 first-leg defeat to unexpectedly triumph 2-1 on aggregate, leaving Rangers disgraced.

What's more astonishing is that the Luxembourg side said in their own matchday programme that "it's virtually certain" that Rangers will qualify (see tweet below), which just adds to the embarrassment.

In the aftermath of the match Rangers fans vented their frustration at Caixinha who is now priced at 11/2 (Paddy Power) to not be the Gers manager on the opening day of the 2017/18 season, which gets underway on Saturday 5th August.

Other bets include an 8/11 for Caixinha not to be at Ibrox on the final day of next season, and 6/4 to have left before Christmas (both courtesy of Paddy Power).

The nightmare result was a major set back for Caixinha and his new look side who are now out at 12/1 (Bet365) to win the SPL title for the first time since 2011. Meanwhile, Celtic are priced at a minuscule 1/20 to bag their seventh in succession, with Paddy Power even paying out on the Hoops to hoist the title following Rangers' shocker in Luxembourg.
