Former Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha has suffered humiliation as his new side Cruz Azul were defeated in the Mexican Cup by minnows. 

In only his second game as boss, the Portuguese watched on as the eight-time Mexican champions lost away to their lower league opponents, Alebrijes de Oaxaca, who were formed only five years ago.  

The embarrassing defeat followed a goalless draw in Caixinha's first match and some fans are already calling for him to be sacked.

However, Caixinha was defiant after the match and insisted the signs of improvement were there.   

He said: "We actually played better than we did in my first match. 

"We were aggressive and played some great football.

"There is no pressure because I know the goals will come very soon. 

"I regret the result, but we are proud of the commitment and passion the players put into the tie."   

New signing Carlos Pena, who joined the club in a one-year loan deal from Rangers, watched the match from the stands having been recently reunited with Caixinha.
