Rangers have suffered their first defeat of the Steven Gerrard era after losing 1-0 to Celtic at Celtic Park on Sunday afternoon.
Sadly, in many ways, it was a performance that has become typical of recent derbies against Brendan Rodgers’ side, with the Gers again somehow caught in the headlights and not up for the fight.
It was only due to the heroics of Allan McGregor that the scoreline wasn’t larger.
One players fans are particularly unhappy with is Alfredo Morelos, who struggled to make an impact on the game in any meaningful way and missed a golden chance after bodying defender Dedryck Boyata.
The Colombian, who has just signed a lucrative new deal at the club, looked below the standard he had set in the earlier stages of this season.
These supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his performance…
Morelos isn't a big game player either, would be better coming on as a sub in games like today

Lafferty and Morelos did absolutely fuck all today, held up nothing & created absolutely nothing. Loss is a loss, no matter what. Gerrard must be fuming and hope he realises to rectify his mistakes as well, seemed tactically frail.

If only Morelos had the work rate that Lafferty shows…

Both Tavernier and Morelos should have been subbed at half time absolute liabilities…. No Tatical change at half time from Gerrard Disappointing…

Think Rangers looked knackered today. Morelos & Lafferty were terrible. They didn't offer us any out ball at all. Yes, we should have came away with a draw, Collum is a cunt, however, we need to be better in possession. That will improve. Expect us to beat them at Ibrox. Twice.

The only thing we can take away is that the defence were better than last year. Midfield was a massive disappointment, so poor in possession. Morelos is not the answer.

We still lack up front. As I said as window closed. Lafferty , Morelos and Sadiq (no comment) isn’t enough. And we still lack in midfield. Coulibaly a huge miss for physicality. But I also have perspective. And we are a long way better than we were. We learn and move on.

Morelos chance was absolutely brilliant from him in the build up but straight down Gordon’s throat when it mattered. Sums him up.
