The Colombian’s caution has been overturned by the SFA disciplinary panel who took a second look at the incident which led to the half-time flash-point that has landed Steven Gerrard a one-match ban for comments made to referee John Beaton.
Morelos was shown the yellow card in the 37th minute of the win, after being tripped by Livingston goalkeeper Max Stryjek’s arms. Rangers’ appeal for a penalty was dismissed and their frustrations compounded by the further caution for the striker who eventually scored the 85th minute winner.
A Rangers statement said: “No one will be surprised that Alfredo Morelos’ yellow card has been rescinded and we are pleased to have won this appeal.”
Steven Gerrard’s half-time remonstrations resulted in a red card and the Ibrox boss has accepted the ban offered from Hampden this afternoon. He will sit out this weekend’s match at home to St Mirren.
