Rangers’ Appeal of Alfredo Morelos Red Card Rejected by the SFA.. Upgraded to 3 Games

Rangers’ Appeal of Alfredo Morelos Red Card Rejected by the SFA.. Upgraded to 3 Games

Rangers‘ appeal of the red card Alfredo Morelos received in their 4-2 win over Aberdeen has been rejected by the SFA.

The Colombian striker was sent packing 57 minutes in to Wednesday night’s fiery game at Pittodrie after appearing to stamp on Scott McKenna.

McKenna got his marching orders for the part he played in the incident too, kicking out at Morelos after tumbling to the ground.

But it’s Morelos’ involvement in it that’s led to more controversy, with many appearing split on whether they thought it was a red card or not.

Rangers are clear they think it wasn’t deserved and were quick to lodge an appeal against his immediate two-game ban.

If they’d won, it would clear Morelos to play Kilmarnock in the Scottish Cup tomorrow and then St Johnstone in the Premiership the following week.

But the SFA have thrown out their appeal, meaning Morelos will now sit out those two games:

Morelos will now serve a three-game ban due to the appeal – starting in tomorrow’s Scottish Cup game against Kilmarnock, continuing in the Premiership against St Johnstone next week and then ending away at Hamilton later this month.

Rangers fans – are you unhappy with the SFA’s decision?
