Rangers star Alfredo Morelos in sly dig to Celtic captain Scott Brown after Old Firm victory
Alfredo Morelos took to Instagram following yesterday’s Old Firm derby and shared a photo of his shoving match with Celtic captain Scott Brown.
The Rangers striker uploaded two pictures from the flash point and captioned his post “WATP❤️🤍💙”.
Morelos and Brown clashed after Celtic defender Shane Duffy put in a crunching challenge on Ryan Kent.
Morelos was booked following the incident and was then substituted by Ibrox boss Steven Gerrard.
Other Rangers stars were quick to comment on Morelos’ post.
Ryan Jack said: “Go on the buff 🐃 💯🔥🙌”
Bongani Zungu posted: “🤣🤣🤣 relax Buff 🙌. 💙💙💪🏽”
And Jordan Jones wrote: “Amazing.”
The post has racked up nearly 70,000 likes since Morelos posted the pictures late last night.
Rangers moved 19 points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership with their 1-0 win over 10-man Old Firm rivals Celtic.
It might have been a different story had Gers keeper Allan McGregor not pulled off three world-class saves – including brilliantly finger-tipping Leigh Griffiths’ strike onto the post – as Celtic dominated the first half.
But Nir Bitton was sent off just after the hour for hauling down Alfredo Morelos to deny the Rangers striker a run on goal.
And Callum McGregor put through his own goal seven minutes later to hand Rangers maximum points – and an increasingly imposing lead in the title race, even with Celtic having three games in hand.
