Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos found himself dropped to the bench by manager Graeme Murty for Sunday’s 2-1 win over Hearts at Ibrox – but the 21-year-old Colombian’s attitude is beyond a joke and that should see the Colombian binned in the summer.
Morelos was one of four changes to the starting XI after last weekend’s Scottish Cup thrashing by Celtic as Wes Foderingham, Greg Docherty and Andy Halliday all missed out with Jak Alnwick, Jason Holt, Josh Windass and Jason Cummings replacing them.
The Ibrox giants have had more than their share of problems with player conduct this season with Kenny Miller and Lee Wallace falling foul of two managers this season and being formally suspended by the club in the wake of the Hampden defeat.
When the Gers subs came out at half-time to warm-up, as the others went through the usual drills and passing exercises, the Colombian sauntered from touchline to touchline looking like a huffy teenager.

There is no doubting that the 21-year-old has bags of potential and could be a top striker but there have been a number of times this season when his decision making has let him down badly and questions have been raised about his mentality.
Morelos was subject of a number of bids in the summer from Chinese Super League side Beijing Renhe and, while hindsight might say he should have been sold then, the Gers will surely be hoping they renew their interest this summer.
In other Rangers news, Graeme Murty was left raving over this from last weekend’s Celtic clash.
