Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos is very much a ‘love him, loathe him’ character at Ibrox.
The 22-year-old’s eye for goal can’t be debated and he’s already found the back of the net 20 times so far in the 2018/19 campaign, but he frustrates plenty of fans when it comes to his attitude on the pitch and the way the red mist so easily seems to surround him.
Despite taking a monumental and thoroughly deserved victory over Celtic in our last game, three moments in the match involved Morelos again and although there was no punishment from the matchday referee, the Scottish Football Association’s compliance officer has confirmed that those three incidents are being looked at closely now.
The three moments concerned an apparent kick aimed at Celtic captain Scott Brown, a possible stamp on fullback Anthony Ralston and an alleged grab at midfielder Ryan Christie.
The final decision on whether or not the Colombian international will face a charge and suspension won’t be made until Thursday owing to the turn of the New Year but whatever happens, Morelos needs to learn to control himself as plenty believe his actions have already cost us.
For a striker to receive three red cards and 13 yellows (some rescinded on appeal) at this stage of the season does tell its own story.
