Rangers went into their clash with Dundee United on Sunday knowing a win would take them 16 points clear in the league.

Steven Gerrard made six changes from the Europa League, welcoming back his familiar faces for the trip to Tannadice.

The Bears went into half-time ahead 2-1, with Conor Goldson adding to James Tavernier’s world-class free-kick from distance.


Alfredo Morelos was one of those to come back into the side.

It hasn’t been a great start to the season for the Colombian, but he nearly opened the scoring from distance when driving low just past the right-hand post.

Then came a moment of madness, something that we thought we had left in the past in terms of Morelos and his attitude problem.

For no apparent reason, the forward appeared to elbow a United defender in a challenge, and replays showed he was lucky to only pick up a yellow.

Gerrard and the Bears will be thankful there is no VAR because if that was reviewed, they would have been down to 10-men for the majority of the game.

Rangers have improved drastically in terms of their discipline this season, with the last sending off coming against Celtic last season for, you guessed it, Morelos.

There comes a point where something needs to change, and the attitude of the 24-year-old will eventually cost his side – let’s hope it doesn’t come this season.

Many Rangers fans have reacted to the performance of Morelos, and they were far from happy with what they saw from the South American.

The majority demanded that he was taken off at the break, and replaced by the goalscorer in Poznan, Cedric Itten.
