Alfredo Morelos faces punishment after classless gesture towards Celtic fans

Another Glasgow Derby has come and gone. Alfredo Morelos has still not scored against Celtic. Instead he found another way to cause controversy, first by being sent off for diving in the 96th minute of the game and then making a slit-throat gesture towards the Celtic fans, to be watched by millions of viewers around the world. And now the Colombian is expected to be hit with further punishment by the disciplinary committee.

So much for his ‘improved discipline’ as he has now been sent off twice in the last three games. First, he was sent off against Motherwell for his celebrations after scoring the winner. And on Sunday, he was sent off after receiving a second yellow card for diving despite being clean through on goal. The Rangers assistant manager, Michael Beale, was sent off in the aftermath as well following which Morelos made the infamous gesture. And hopefully the Colombian gets the punishment he deserves.

The Rangers fans though will be delighted with the result on Sunday as they managed to get a rare 2-1 win over the reigning Scottish champions in their own backyard. Now if they manage to win their spare game in hand, they will go top of the Premiership with a one point lead over Celtic. The season is long though and the Hoops will be looking to come back stronger from the break after Sunday’s setback.
