Alfredo Morelos yesterday left a lot of Rangers fans fuming when he got himself needlessly sent off. That sentence can, and has, been used too many times this season, and whilst his goals are a superb asset to the Gers, his disciplinary record is something that needs to be straightened out as it could cost him a big move in the future.
55' RED: Alfredo Morelos is sent off.

Morelos had been at his brilliant best in the first half at Pittodrie, latching onto the rebound to score after Ryan Kent forced a smart stop out of Dandies’ ‘keeper Joe Lewis before firing home a superb second with the inside of his left foot from the edge of the box. A few betting men would have been eyeing up a treble for the Colombian, but alas it wasn’t to be.
Instead of Morelos managing to hold out and bag his second hat-trick of the season, he got unnecessarily involved in an incident after the ball had gone with Scot McKenna. The ball was bouncing away and McKenna was on the ground whenMorelos stamped down between the Aberdeen man’s legs in a place no man wants to be stamped on, in return McKenna fired a boot towards Morelos’ head and both men saw red, leaving the Gers pretty hacked off at their goal machine.

HE CAN'T KEEP NOT GETTING AWAY WITH THIS

You can’t kick a player in the balls and expect to get away with it.

Both players deserved a red. Will he ever learn ffs. Love Morelos but he brings it on himself so many times!

What a shocker!!!! The lad must control his temper!!!

2 goals, looking good for a win, then he does it again. We lose this, and he should go. Popular player, can score goals, but he’s a liability!..

He’s such a liability

The fans are starting to lose their patience when it comes to Morelos and will hope Steven Gerrard can sort the 22-year-old’s disciplinary issues sooner rather than later.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
