Loads of fans have been slamming the commentary on BT Sport during one particular incident in Rangers’ League Cup final defeat to Celtic, which appeared to show some serious bias against Alfredo Morelos.
We’ve all heard it by now. Morelos is a dirty player, Morelos is this and Morelos is that.
Yet, Chris Sutton’s damning verdict on an incident involving Christopher Jullien in Sunday’s 1-0 defeat has left a sour taste in the mouths of plenty of fans.
Morelos caught the towering French defender on the ankle as he ran past him in the second half, but the Gers striker never looked at the Celtic man or altered his stride to initiate the contact.
Sutton didn’t see it that way, saying on BT Sport’s commentary: “That’s naughty, really naughty from Morelos.
“Had Willie Collum seen that, I think he’d be a goner.”
Needless to say, plenty of fans have slammed Sutton’s verdict on what appeared to an accidental coming together, as one even pointed out it was far less deliberate than Scott Brown’s trip on Morelos last season, which led to a red card for the Colombian.

Time @RangersFC refused to deal with this mob the agenda is embarrassing

be honest, any other player does that. It’s accidental. Morelos does and Sutton tries to create a narrative to suit his agenda.

Incredible and disgusting commentary from Chris Sutton. Everyone knows how he despises Rangers, and he’s jealous and bitter, but that commentary, when Morelos clearly wasn’t even looking at Julie, is a disgrace

There was nothing to that, he did not look to hit him.
