Aberdeen Boss Derek McInnes Lavishes Praise on Rangers Striker Alfredo Morelos

Aberdeen Boss Derek McInnes Lavishes Praise on Rangers Striker Alfredo Morelos

Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos was sent off against Aberdeen tonight – but that didn’t stop Dons boss Derek McInnes from lavishing praise on the in-form forward.

A brilliantly entertaining contest at Pittodrie on Wednesday evening ended 4-2 to the Gers, with Steven Gerrard claiming his first victory over Aberdeen since arriving in Scotland thanks in no small part to a Morelos brace.

The Colombian international saw red in the 57th minute after a set-to with Scott McKenna, who was also sent off, but his contribution up until that point was hailed by the opposition manager:

Remarkably, Morelos has now been sent off against Aberdeen on three different occasions this season, and now looks set to serve a suspension at a crucial point of Rangers’ campaign.

But is McInnes correct in suggestion the 22-year-old was the main difference between the two teams? Did Aberdeen thoroughly dominate after his controversial dismissal?
