Despite beating Hamilton Academical 3-1 at the Hope CBD Stadium on Sunday afternoon, a number of Rangers fans took the time out to react to something that does not appear to have changed; Alfredo Morelos going into the referee’s notebook.
86' YELLOW: Alfredo Morelos is booked | 1-2
— Rangers Football Club (@RangersFC) November 24, 2019
The Colombia international forward had only been on the field for three minutes before his name was noted down and shown a yellow card, as he had just come on to the field to replace Jermain Defoe.
Indeed, he was hardly needed by Steven Gerrard’s side on the afternoon as a brace from Ryan Kent as well as an early opener from Ryan Jack was enough to keep them level with Old Firm rivals Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership (BBC).
However, fans could not believe that Morelos had been shown a yellow card just moments after coming on to the pitch, although some did not appear to be as surprised as others when he was cautioned.
Whilst many had slammed referee Steven McLean for his decision and citing that they felt he could not wait to do so, a plethora of fans appeared to find the funny side of the situation and took to Twitter to share their immediate reactions.
Here are some of their remarks…
