Rangers will have to wait until Thursday before discovering if Alfredo Morelos has any disciplinary charges to answer from Saturday’s win over Celtic at Ibrox.

The 22-year-old Colombia striker appeared to kick out at Hoops skipper Scott Brown, stand on defender Anthony Ralston and flick out his hand at midfielder Ryan Christie’s groin area during the 1-0 victory which took the Light Blues level on points with the Ladbrokes Premiership leaders.

Morelos has picked up 13 yellow cards and three reds this season, albeit one against Aberdeen earlier in the season was rescinded.
