Alfredo Morelos Appears To Make Throat-Slitting Gesture Towards Celtic Fans
Alfredo Morelos could be in trouble after appearing to make a throat-slitting gesture towards Celtic fans after being sent off in the Old Firm clash.
The Colombian received a second yellow card after diving in the Celtic penalty area in added time.
As the 23-year-old left the pitch, he appeared to make a gesture towards the Celtic fans who abused him as he left the pitch.
The hot tempered forward was quickly ushered down the tunnel by Rangers staff as his side battled on with 10 men.
It's the latest incident in Morelos' storied 'Gers' career and he's now played 13 games against Celtic without scoring.
The red card is his second of the season after receiving one against Motherwell two weeks ago.
6 - Since the start of last season, Alfredo Morelos has received six red cards in the Scottish Premiership - at least three times as many as any other player in this time. Bufalo. pic.twitter.com/LUyYx3fIfJ- OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) December 29, 2019
Ryan Kent also caused controversy with a gesture he made after scoring his goal.
On the pitch, it was an inspired performance from Steven Gerrard's side.
Neil Lennon's side managed to find an equaliser through Odsonne Edouard in the 42nd minute, shortly after Kent's lovely opener.
But a second half finish from Nikola Katic gave them a deserved win.
Moments after the referee blew for full-time, a delighted Gerrard screamed at the camera before joining his players on the pitch in an emotional scene.
