Video: Gary McAllister Believes Alfredo Morelos Was Trying to Get Out the Way in Red Card Incident

Gary McAllister believes Alfredo Morelos was trying to get out of the way in the incident with Scott McKenna that led to his red card against Aberdeen.

The Colombian striker made a huge impact on Wednesday’s 4-2 win for Rangers at Pittodrie, scoring two goals before being sent off by referee Bobby Madden.

His first goal was an opportunistic finish on the rebound, while his second was a beautiful curling effort from the edge of the box.

But the biggest talking point of Morelos’ game came in the 57th minute when he was red carded for appearing to stamp on Dons defender McKenna.

Both players got tangled up in the incident, with McKenna kicking out at Morelos too – also earning a red card from Madden.

Yet it’s Morelos’ sending off that has led to most discussion and Rangers deciding to appeal the decision, with a an outcome on that expected today.

According to McAllister, Morelos was simply trying to get out of the way in the incident and wasn’t deserving of the red card:

Morelos is looking at a two-game ban now, with tomorrow’s Scottish Cup clash away at Kilmarnock the first of that suspension.

But Rangers may win their appeal and be with the Colombian for what should be a tough game against Steve Clarke’s men.
