Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos cut a forlorn figure for long spells of Tuesday night’s Scottish Premiership clash with Aberdeen – but fans think referees have a problem with the Ibrox star after a baffling penalty decision was given against the Colombian.

The Gers striker gave away a penalty after 12 minutes for an apparent foul on Kenny McLean before the Dons man stepped up to stroke the ball home and give the Dons a 1-0 lead.

Morelos was first to the ball before the Aberdeen ace threw himself over the Gers striker’s outstretched leg to fool the official into pointing to the spot.

The 21-year-old was constantly being spoken to by referee Steven McLean throughout the game – leading to some fans to claim officials have it in for the Rangers star.

Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

The former HJK Helsinki striker has come in for some pretty rough treatment during his debut season in Scottish football and was involved in several flashpoints at Pittodrie.

Referee Steven McLean had a busy night during the clash between Rangers and Aberdeen with four Ibrox players booked in the opening 45 minutes alone of the fiery clash between the two sides.
