Rangers have appealed the yellow card handed to Alfredo Morelos in the 1-0 victory against Livingston on Wednesday evening.
It was a huge controversy in the game, where John Beaton had adjudged the Colombian to have dived rather than a penalty in the first half.
Steven Gerrard was subsequently sent off for arguing the decision, claiming it was a clear penalty, with three officials missing it.
Sky Sports have shared a major update on Thursday, with the Bears deciding to appeal the caution handed to Morelos for simulation.
Speaking live on air, David Garrido shared the information and confirming that the Gers want action to be concluded quickly following the game.
“Our breaking story comes to you from Scotland,” he said.
“Rangers have appealed the yellow card that was given to striker Alfredo Morelos last night for simulation.”

This was the only outcome.
Usually, clubs aren’t allowed to appeal yellow cards, but that changes when the booking is for simulation or accused diving in this case.
There is clear contact between Morelos and the goalkeeper, and every single official at the ground made a huge mistake in giving it the other way.
Every time one of these incidents involves the striker, people start to question whether or not it was given based on his reputation and it is starting to look that way.
Morelos is charged quickly when in the wrong, so this caution should be overturned after he did absolutely nothing wrong.
