Rangers: Fans pleased with journalist’s defence of Alfredo Morelos

Rangers: Fans pleased with journalist’s defence of Alfredo Morelos - Rangers

A number of Rangers fans have voiced their approval of an article that was written about striker Alfredo Morelos this week.

Herald Scotland published a piece from columnist Neil Cameron in which he stood up for the 23-year-old following his red card at Motherwell last Sunday, with the article also shared on Twitter via @heraldscotland.

In the piece, Cameron wrote that the Colombian is “a serial victim” of vitriol from opposition fans in Scotland, citing instances of racial abuse, coin throwing and a defamatory banner about his mother.

He said that Scottish fans “deserve the ultimate snub” from the player and wrote: “This is a serial victim. He’s been racially abused, coins have hit off him and Aberdeen supporters even wrote a banner in Spanish about his mother. Oh, the Scottish banter.” [via Herald Scotland]

Last weekend, Morelos was sent off for a second bookable offence after he celebrated his goal at Fir Park in front of the home supporters by making a gesture that referee Don Robertson deemed offensive. [via BBC]

The 23-year-old has been in sensational scoring form this season, with his goal against Motherwell taking him to 27 for the campaign so far, but his red card on Sunday was his sixth since the beginning of last season.

These Rangers fans took to Twitter to commend Cameron for coming out in defence of Morelos:
