With the November international break coming to an end, Rangers were back in Scottish Premiership action on Sunday as we made the trip to Hamilton Academical, but as fans will know, key striker Alfredo Morelos had to settle for a place on the bench.
We didn’t really miss the Colombian, taking a 3-1 victory owing to goals from Ryan Jack and a Ryan Kent brace to keep the pressure on at the top of the table, and with him only getting a small runout at the end of the game, he should be fully recharged after all his travelling.
The 23-year-old did still make his mark on the game though, as despite his ten odd minutes on the pitch, he helped himself to his sixth yellow card of the campaign so far, as well as more than playing his part in Kent’s second on the day.
Rangers fans on social media were somewhat bemused by the fact that referee Steven McLean was quick to card him for ‘lashing out’, yet Accies player, Mikel Miller, got away scot-free, despite committing the initial foul.

The refs should just book Morelos for coming onto the pitch and get it over with. No wonder he was laughing. He’s counter attacking and gets dragged back, that’s a yellow every time and the guy gets no yellow and Morelos gets booked.

That Morelos booking was actually disgusting.

His booking of Morelos was ridiculous. Even Morelos was laughing at him.

Absolutely dreadful 2nd half from Rangers but 3 points in the bag.
The booking for Morelos is disgraceful from the referee

Nothing has changed from last season, Morelos is reffed to a different standard than anyone else, the booking he received was absolutely shambolic

Crazy how many challenges and lashing out Gogic got away with before a booking, Morelos fouled and booked for kicking out slightly. Absolute embarrassing refereeing

Morelos booking is an absolute disgrace.

Was The Booking Justified?
Nailed On, It Was Petulant Again
No Chance, Not With Everything Else He Let Go
It's Morelos, It'll Always Happen
