The fallout from our clash with Celtic is still ongoing, and we’re expecting it to continue for a while yet. We’re still celebrating the news, and we’ve got something else to smile about this week.
According to Sky Scotland, striker Alfredo Morelos will face no further action stemming from the derby, with the referee seeing every incident involving the forward that has since riled up many opposing fans.
Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos will receive no further action following Saturday’s Old Firm game.
It has been deemed by the Scottish FA that referee John Beaton saw all incidents involving Morelos in full at the time so no retrospective action can be taken. pic.twitter.com/HEsnGgbv10

Of course, Morelos’ playstyle is always going to be controversial and divisive, and if we’re honest, he was somewhat lucky that he remained on the pitch for the full game against the Hoops. There were a number of clashes that, on another day, could have gone against us.
Still, the news is great for us, and many fans online have made that very clear. Los of Rangers supporters have taken to Twiter to discuss the news, and they’re pleased that El Buffalo will be available to feature going forward, with no ban on the horizon.
