On Friday evening, it emerged via multiple sources, including the Daily Record, that Rangers had lost their appeal against Alfredo Morelos’ red card. 
He will now serve a three-match suspension: Kilmarnock (A), St Johnstone (H) and Hamilton (A).

The incident occurred during the Gers’ midweek win at Aberdeen.
Morelos had lit up the first half with two expertly taken goals. Yet, once again, needlessly became involved in an altercation with Scott McKenna.

It was McKenna who clearly made the more aggressive of the two acts, kicking out towards Morelos’ face.
Therefore, the Dons decided against appealing their centre-back’s ban.

Morelos’ actions were less clear cut.
Yet, despite Rangers’ best efforts, the SFA stuck by Bobby Madden’s original decision to dismiss the prolific Colombian striker.
It comes as a big blow to Rangers. Especially, as goalkeeper, Allan McGregor, is also facing a ban for a challenge on Aberdeen’s Lewis Ferguson. 

There is a feeling of injustice amongst Gers supporters, after several similar or worse acts from the Celtic vs Hibernian game, have went unpunished.
A few voiced their opinions on Twitter last night, when the news of Morelos’ suspension broke.
