Rangers’ Alfredo Moleros hit by three match ban as appeal rejected

Postado Fevereiro 09, 2019

Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos has been given a three-match ban after losing his appeal against the red card he received against Aberdeen.

Morelos was dismissed for an alleged stamp on Aberdeen defender Scott McKenna, who was also sent-off for kicking out in retaliation, by referee Bobby Madden.

Aberdeen did not appeal McKenna's red card but Rangers contested the sending-off and lodged their appeal on Thursday.

However Rangers launched an appeal which was rejected at an SFA judicial panel hearing this evening (Friday).

He will also serve an additional one-match ban in the Premiership, because it is his second red card of the season in the league - the one he was shown against Aberdeen in August was rescinded.

Morelos will now miss Saturday's Scottish Cup last-16 tie at Kilmarnock, plus Rangers' next two league matches.

That suspension kicks in 14 days on from Wednesday's game, meaning he will miss the trip to Hamilton on February 24.

The Colombian was sent-off for the fourth time this season - and for the third time against the Dons in this campaign - in his side's 4-2 win against the Dons.

The Scotland worldwide will have a hearing on Tuesday, unless Rangers accept the charge.
