The awkward moment Pedro Caixinha was inadvertently tackled by his own player

The manager was at the receiving end of challenge from Josh Windass.

It’s not every day you accidentally tackle your own manager in the middle of a game, but that’s exactly what happened to Josh Windass as Rangers faced Celtic in the Scottish Premiership.

Things took a rather dramatic turn when Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha found himself inadvertently becoming collateral damage when Windass accidentally floored him while battling for possession with Mikael Lustig.

The good sport that he is, Caixinha got up and brushed himself off before giving his player a pat on the back.

Josh Windass colides with manager Pedro Caixinha.

The internet certainly saw the funny side of it…

Good to know Caixinha doesn’t take life too seriously.
