Craig Levein has claimed that Rangers forward Alfredo Morelos bears “grudges” and is upset far too easily in games.
The Colombian made the headlines after the 2-1 win against Dundee United after he threw a deliberate elbow at Mark Connolly.
Levein believes that most players will be told to leave something on the Bears forward, as he is likely to react and get himself into trouble.
Speaking to the Glasgow Times, Levein has claimed that the Colombian should have been given his marching orders at Tannadice.
“I actually saw Morelos take a wee note of who it was had challenged him,” he said.
“If you want to upset Morelos, it’s not that difficult. All you need to do is – early in the match – leave something on him.
“He seems to bear grudges and want to equal the score as quickly as possible. That happened just before he threw a forearm.”
It was simply ludicrous from Morelos on Sunday.
How he wasn’t sent off, we don’t know, but he must use this as a warning to get his head down and get back to doing what he does best in the final third.
Steven Gerrard has fired a warning shot at Morelos in his latest press conference, claiming that he needs to handle the pressure of playing for the Gers better.
Morelos appeared to have turned a corner this season, with his last red card coming in the Old Firm game against Celtic in the last campaign.
The striker was lucky to get away with this one, and another couple of weeks with performances like this, he has to be dropped.
