Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos is never far from the headlines when it comes to Old Firm rivals Celtic and an altercation with Parkhead captain Scott Brown didn’t go unnoticed.
There was a period in the 2-0 win were the Colombian firebrand was threatening to go overboard whilst getting riled up against our fiercest rivals.
This culminated in Morelos slapping Celtic captain Scott Brown around the head in an incident which had several Rangers fans sweating over whether the player would be carded.
But for whatever reason the incident wasn’t deemed serious enough to warrant further action but you obviously run a huge risk by lifting your hands to an opponent.
In the middle of an argument with Brown, Morelos lifts his hand and slaps the bald Celtic captain round the back of the head.
Whilst at the time it was incredibly nervy on the part of the Rangers support, naturally now its become a visual metaphor of sorts about the outcome of the game.
The Colombian striker does not see eye-to-eye with the Celtic skipper and this flash point certainly caught the eye of the Rangers support:

Scott Brown has been getting away with dirty fouls on players for years. Celtic fans think he’s a hard man because of it. Morelos taps him on the head and they go into meltdown. Only if the narrative fits though eh

Whilst Morelos got off with it this time he wasn’t so lucky in the same fixture in March 2019.
Celtic captain Brown got under Morelos’ skin and he lashed out at the Parkhead midfielder before being shown a red card in a match Rangers would go on to lose 2-1.
But whilst he might not have learned his lesson and can count himself lucky this incident didn’t see him reprimanded, you’ll forgive Rangers fans for indulging in it.
