RANGERS will launch an appeal against Alfredo Morelos’ red card in the 1-1 draw with Aberdeen at Pittodrie on Sunday.

The club have until 3pm today to formally submit an appeal to the Scottish FA.

Morelos was dismissed just 12 minutes into the game after an off-the ball kick at Dons defender Scott McKenna.

Boss Steven Gerrard said after the game: “You leave the referee with a decision if you kick out, but the disappointing thing is he has been barged clearly and whoever’s spotted the red card should have spotted them, too.”

The Liverpool legend further questioned the match officials, saying: “It seems like the world is against us, but we’ll make sure we get better for that, because it looks like some more decisions will go against us as the season goes on.

“We need to try and use it to our advantage. It’s not just today, I believe it’s been happening for seasons. That’s just my opinion.”

The rookie Ibrox gaffer is likely to escape censure from the SFA for his remarks.
