Not for the first time during his career, Alfredo Morelos overshadowed a superb performance for Rangers by being sent off against Celtic.

The Colombian then went even further by gesturing to the Celtic fans as they jeered him leaving the park in added time of the 2-1 victory.

There has been suggestions that he could be punished for that, but not many have come out to comment on the situation unfolding.

Chris Sutton has never been short of comments on Rangers in the past and has commented on how Steven Gerrard had to have sat down the Colombian after the derby.

“Also, why has the manager of the club not come out and condemned this gesture for what it is? A violent gesture. That’s what I find difficult to understand,” he wrote for the Daily Record.

“It’s Steven Gerrard ’s 
responsibility as gaffer of Rangers to come out and condemn it. Just as it would be Neil Lennon responsibility on the other side of the city.”

That could well have happened behind closed doors though, with the Gers boss surely wanting the South American to keep out of the headlines rather than create them.


Either way, Morelos will now be suspended and Jermain Defoe will once again have to step up to fill those boots, just like he did recently against Hibernian.

Gerrard will want the Colombian to keep the fiery temperament that makes him such a difficult player to deal with but to do that without being so controversial at critical points of the campaign.
