Former Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha has been blasted by Argentine midfielder Walter Montoya, who is leaving the Portuguese's current club Cruz Azul.

Following his departure from Ibrox, Caixinha was in demand in Mexico, where he had previously enjoyed success with Santos Laguna.

Cruz Azul secured the 48-year-old's services and he led the club to success in the Copa MX Apertura at the end of October as he recovered from his poor spell in charge of Rangers.

Former Sevilla midfielder Montoya did not find favour under Caixinha however and the Argentine has launched a blistering attack on how the ex-Rangers boss treated him.

Montoya was quoted as saying by Portuguese outlet Mais Futebol: "I felt the coach treated me like trash.

"In training, I felt at my best, but when the games came I was not picked to play."

Montoya made just nine appearances for Cruz Azul under Caixinha last term.

The Argentine midfielder has now ended his adventure with Cruz Azul and will look to kickstart his career in Brazil, having signed for Gremio.

Caixinha took charge of Rangers for 26 games across all competitions, winning 14, drawing five and losing seven.
