The Daily Record has reported that Alfredo Morelos has been subjected to more alleged racist abuse during the 2-1 defeat to Kilmarnock on Wednesday night.

The Colombian striker had an eventful evening being, rightly, booked for diving before missing two golden opportunities to put his side 2-0 in front then at 1-1 having a legitimate claim for a penalty waved away before – to put the icing on the cake – referee, John Beaton, disallowed a perfectly good header with five minutes to go which would have given his side the lead and, probably, the three points.

In a week that saw a 12-year-old Celtic fan charged with racist abuse, Morelos is still the centre of an argument between Celtic and Sky Sports after the translation fiasco following his interview with the media giants which led to both sides of the Old Firm receiving apologies.

Are the SFA doing enough about the abuse Morelos is receiving?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Rangers fans responded to the allegations outraged that their star player continues to receive such abuse regardless of his on-field persona.

Morelos may dive and attempt to con the referee but this doesn’t justify the levels and type of abuse he is currently being subjected too in Scottish football with the game now being severely scrutinised after recent police action.
