Rangers moved within four points of clinching the Scottish Premiership title with a dramatic 1-0 win against Livingston at the Tony Macaroni Arena on Wednesday night.

While the match itself was rather dull, a controversial bit of refereeing by John Beaton made headlines at the Spaghettihad when he wrongfully booked Alfredo Morelos for simulation in the first half when the striker went down in the Livi penalty area.

However, replays suggested that Morelos was clearly fouled by Livingston goalkeeper Max Stryjek and Steven Gerrard took to the pitch to vent his anger at the official at half-time.

Beaton ended up sending Gerrard to the stands for the second half as the Gers pushed in search of a winner.

And while they left it late, Morelos found himself to be making headlines once more when he tapped the winning goal into the back of the Livingston goal in the 87th minute.

We asked our panel of Rangers Super Fans to decide their man of the match from the 1-0 win at Almondvale and there’s no surprise that the match-winner himself was the pick of the bunch.

Here is what they had to say:

Adam Walker (@AdamWal99214879)

Kyle RC (@kyleRC_)

John Mason (@johnmasonrtid)

Who else but Morelos?

We’ve seen the absolute best of the Colombia international in the last week with his memorable performance against Antwerp in the Europa League, followed by a match-winning goal that leaves us on the brink of title number 55.

It’s a shame that Beaton tried to ruin it by booking him for diving and hopefully, common sense prevails and the yellow card is rescinded by the SFA.

But, at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter and Morelos will have the last laugh.

He will be a Rangers title winner in one of the club’s most defining seasons in its long and proud history.

Morelos wasn’t the only Ger to impress though on Wednesday with the Super Fans also singling out centre-back Connor Goldson and midfielder Steven Davis.

Both also played superbly and no one really had a bad match at Almondvale.
