Chris Sutton isn’t Buying Gary McAllister’s Defence of Alfredo Morelos

Chris Sutton isn’t Buying Gary McAllister’s Defence of Alfredo Morelos

Chris Sutton isn’t buying Gary McAllister’s defence of Alfredo Morelos.

The Rangers striker has had a big influence on Scottish football this week after inspiring his side to a valuable 4-2 win away at Aberdeen.

But he also caused some controversy for his involvement in a clash with Scott McKenna on the hour mark of Wednesday night’s game at Pittodrie.

Both players were sent off by Bobby Madden – with the referee believing Morelos stamped on McKenna before the Aberdeen defender responded with a boot to the face of the Colombian striker.

Rangers have since appealed that red – with a decision expected on that later today – and Steven Gerrard’s assistant McAllister has defended Morelos for his part in the clash.

He believes Morelos was trying to get out of the way when he became tangled with McKenna.

But BT Sport pundit Sutton isn’t buying that – and referenced some other controversial incidents involving Morelos when responding to McAllister’s view:

It should come as no surprise that Sutton holds this view as it’s fitting with what he has said in the past about Morelos and aggressive approach to playing.

Rangers will learn later today whether or not they’ve been successful with their appeal.

If they do win it, Morelos will be able to play against Kilmarnock in the Scottish Cup tomorrow.
