Yet Caixinha insisted he was happy with the intensity levels shown by his hapless side, whose late Kenny Miller strike was of no consolation.
"I understand that every Rangers fan would have hoped for a better season, but I don't think what they are going to achieve this season is disastrous". It is my total responsibility.
"Who are their best players this season?"
"The man responsible is me - the players did everything they worked on, they were ready to do it".

"The boys feel ashamed to play a part in a performance like that". A lot of work is needed at Ibrox if they are to be realistic challengers to Celtic in the short and medium term.
