Steven Gerrard Insists Alfredo Morelos was ‘Kicked From Pillar to Post’ Against Celtic

Steven Gerrard Insists Alfredo Morelos was ‘Kicked From Pillar to Post’ Against Celtic

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has hit out at those who want to see Alfredo Morelos banned after his display in the recent Old Firm derby against Celtic, insisting the Colombian striker was ‘kicked from pillar to post’.

The Gers boss hasn’t had much of an opportunity to have a say on his side’s controversial 1-0 win on December 29 as Scottish football went into its annual winter shutdown after the full-time whistle, but he’s quickly defended his player earlier this evening.

Morelos was involved in flash-points with Scott Brown, Anthony Ralston and Ryan Christie, but the SFA decided against any retrospective action, and speaking from Rangers’ Tenerife training camp, Gerrard was unequivocal in his defence of Morelos:

Morelos has been linked with a move away from Ibrox during the current transfer window, with his agent dropping some hints on Twitter earlier today, but what do you think of Gerrard’s comments?

Is he right to point out that Morelos took a fair deal of his own rough treatment?

Let us know in the comments section below…
