Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos has always been a source of great debate in Scotland. 

For every Gers fan who worships the ground he walks on – and there are plenty – there is an opposite and equal supporter from a rival club who can’t stand the sight of him.

Largely speaking, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.

A little bit of aggro and a touch of fieriness every now and again are absolutely fine, provided they are doled out in the correct measurements.

The issue with Morelos is that his temper has often boiled over and got him in trouble.

Of course, there have been times when he has been the victim of his own reputation too, but sometimes he only has himself to blame.

And we saw that again at Parkhead on Sunday.

There was no need for him to go to ground in the dying seconds to pick up his second yellow of the game, and it now means that he faces a ban after the winter break.

And it’s a shame too, because that aside, he was superb, to the point that he even drew praise from Sportscene pundit Michael Stewart.

Speaking on the show, he said: “Morelos, who – apart from obviously some bad misses and what happens later in the game – he has [Christopher] Jullien and [Kristoffer] Ajer on toast.”

And it’s true.

Sure, he didn’t score, and yes, he did have some decent chances to do so, but he gave that backline the runaround all afternoon, and on another day were it not for his own moment of madness, we would be talking about one of the most impressive striking performances we have seen in an Old Firm for quite some time.
