Alfredo Morelos sent off for the fifth time this season as Old Firm derby follows usual script

The Colombian is the angriest man in Scottish football... and that's really saying something

You don’t even have to watch the Old Firm derby to know what happened.

In what must surely be the most predictable, inevitable sequence of events in football, Alfredo Morelos was sent off for lashing out at Scott Brown.

Celtic’s skipper indulged in some gentle sh*thousery by clipping the Colombian’s heels as the pair ran downfield.

Morelos – widely regarded as the angriest man in Scottish football – lashed out at Brown in retaliation.





The referee didn’t spot the incident as it occurred off the ball but his assistant flagged immediately.

Steven Gerrard watched on as his volatile forward was dismissed for the fifth time this season.

The visitors were 1-0 down at the time after Odsonne Edouard had put the Hoops ahead with a fine left-foot finish.

The Celtic Park faithful’s good spirits were reaffirmed by Morelos’ dismissal — the 22-year-old has undoubtedly been the pantomime villain of the Scottish Premiership this campaign.

Morelos is the top scorer in the league this season and has bagged 29 goals in all competitions, but his discipline record has overshadowed his talent.

Street-smart Brown grinned from ear to ear as the Rangers bad boy eventually made his way off the pitch…

You love to see it

You love to see it

No wonder opposition players aggravate Morelos — he simply can’t help himself.

Gerrard may be without his top scorer for a while now as a four-match suspension is likely.
