Rangers fans are fuming about the Alfredo Morelos booking that leads to a suspension.
The Ibrox side comfortably set aside Livingston 3-0 at Ibrox this afternoon, with Morelos, Daniel Candeias and Scott Arfield getting on the scoresheet.
Morelos only played 28 minutes of the game, replacing Kyle Lafferty with the score at 1-0.
But he had a telling impact with the goal and an assist for Arfield – as well as a booking that’s causing a lot of discussion.
According to reports, Morelos was booked by referee Nick Walsh for dissent – and that will rule him out of the clash with Dundee on December 9th.
Yet Rangers fans have a very different view of the situation:
Gerrard has to come out and make a point of the treatment Morelos gets. He’s unfairly targeted by referees.

Morelos booked for not arguing

Important win today with Killie, Hearts, Aberdeen and Hibs all dropping points. Table looking much better now. Another consistently shite ref performance which sees Morelos now suspended.
Well done, Rangers. 👊

Morelos is the best player in the league, most talented by far yet gets targetted by ref and opposition, sums up Scottish football – sad n bitter

It’s beyond a joke now how Morelos is treated by referees. Decision-making based on a flawed reputation.

Lithglow barges Morelos off the ball and Morelos gets booked. Sums up Scottish refs. Unbelievably fucking awful

Referee again- Lithgow, off the ball, shoulder charges Morelos to the ground. Morelos ends up with the yellow card????

3-0 and game over.
Ref couldn’t wait to book Morelos by the way. Shambles.

Being Alfredo Morelos

And there are plenty more tweets like that from frustrated Rangers fans.
Rangers play Villarreal on Thursday before taking on Hearts next weekend and Aberdeen on December 5th – but Morelos will be able to play in all of those before sitting out against Dundee on the 9th.
