Chris Sutton makes claim about Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos following Celtic sending-off

The Colombian was dismissed for the fifth time of the season in a hotly-contested game at Celtic Park.

Chris Sutton has told BT Sport that Rangers should offload Alfredo Morelos following his fifth red card of the season against Celtic on Sunday.

The 23-year-old talisman has netted 29 goals this season but appears to struggle with ill-discipline.

Sutton is a legend at Parkhead and he feels that Morelos has run out of chances to be trusted by his manager.

He told BT Sport: “No, I wouldn’t, I’d get rid of him, he can’t be trusted.

“Even in the last couple of days, he’s made this statement apologising and then spoken to Colombian radio blaming everybody else.”


Morelos has earned international recognition for his performances with Rangers this season.

His fifth red card for the campaign led to Gerrard being forced to answer more questions about the striker.

Given his goal tally, he will naturally have clubs watching him but his discipline could curtail any big summer move.

TBR Verdict

Sutton is clearly very passionate about Morelos and his conduct in Sunday’s hotly contested Old Firm clash.

Given his Celtic connections, however, there is a sense that he is on the wind-up with the Rangers contingent.

The ex-striker knew where the back of the net was in his playing days and he must rate Morelos’ footballing ability.

El Buffalo is quite clearly Rangers’ most important player and the concept of selling him seems ridiculous.

His misconduct needs sorting, but selling him as a punishment is a staggering concept.
