Vinnie Jones has told talkSPORT that Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos should have ‘smashed’ Scott Brown later on, rather than reacting how he did.
The Colombian was dismissed for the fifth time this season for an off the ball incident with Brown in the first-half.
The Celtic captain reaped the rewards for his provocative actions as the Hoops went onto win the Old Firm bragging rights.
Jones who was known as an hard-man of the nineties, told talkSPORT exactly how Morelos should have dealt with the mischievous Brown.
Now a Hollywood film star, Jones’ comments were summed up in a tweet:

Jones played for numerous clubs during his career including Wimbledon, Sheffield United and Leeds United.
Something has to give with Morelos because he is risking never making it to a top European club given his current conduct.
Steven Gerrard must be having sleepless nights over his star player’s ill-discipline.
Morelos’ fifth red card of the campaign came at arguably the worst possible time.
His inability to control himself in the wake of Brown’s antics has ultimately cost his side the chance to win the game.
It simply cannot go on.
Jones is right. Morelos should have waited and sought retribution on Brown in a different way.
Maybe in this day and age, ‘smashing him’ as Jones puts it, also wouldn’t have helped matters. Scoring the winning goal in the derby might have done, however.
Jones was cute in his play back in his day and Morelos needs to adopt such a stance.
At present opposition, players are winding him up as they know they will entice a reaction.
Gerrard has a serious job on his hands trying to solve the Morelos conundrum.
