Rangers have sacked manager Pedro Caixinha after seven months in charge.

The decision was made at a board meeting called after Rangers conceded a late equaliser against Kilmarnock on Wednesday night. They lost the Scottish League Cup semi-final to Motherwell.

Portuguese Caixinha, 46, was appointed in March and won 14 of his 26 games in charge.

Assistant manager Helder Baptista and coaches Pedro Malta and Jose Belman have also left the Ibrox club.

Rangers are fourth in the table, eight points behind leaders Celtic.

After the Kilmarnock game, Caixinha said he was determined to remain in charge.
