Meltdown at Fir Park as SFA loses plot

We all remember that preposterous red card Andy Halliday got for celebrating a Barrie McKay goal at Morton all those years ago, and how we’ve never seen a Celtic (or indeed any SPL player otherwise) get their marching orders.

They say FTSFA a lot, we sing and chant it, although in all fairness we’re not alone in doing so, but today’s ridiculous second yellow for Alfredo Morelos only sums up that this nonsense just doesn’t happen to other clubs, and certainly not to Celtic.

Having been smashed all match, as usual, Morelos had also been getting the usual stick from Motherwell fans the whole shebang, so when he scored ran, maybe a little misguidedly, to their loyal fans with a ‘I saw and heard you’ gesture of pointing to his eyes and ears. At least we think that’s what he was saying.

Then he got pelted with missiles from the natives, lovely.

Oh, and a second yellow card.

We know he was 3% misguided in going straight to them, but a booking for a non-offensive gesture?

It has been confirmed the gesture was the reason for the booking, and not where Morelos went, so it’s evident this was a ‘snowflake’ sending off:

Where someone is offended at someone else breathing and forms complete outrage and a strongly worded letter. Type thing.

Too many snowflakes in the Scottish game (and society, for that matter) and Morelos gets an early bath.

It was a ‘talking to’ moment, at worst, for the Colombian, not a booking.

Poor refereeing, snowflakes in the crowd, and welcome to Scotland these days.

FTSFA?

    GOD SAVE THE QUEEN🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧

  2. Utter rubbish! He is a professional footballer and knows the consequences of such childish behaviour. Imagine that was Parkhead and the resulting disorder that would have caused.Why he lets a lot of little neds wind him up is beyond me.

  3. I too thought it was a harsh second booking, but interesting that Gerrard said he has no complaints about the sending off. There is no doubt that Morelos should have gone to celebrate with the Rangers supporters, rather than confronting Motherwell fans.

  4. Alfredo's getting pure persecuted by these half-wit, incompetent refs. Raging. Broony and others, (non Bears) get to gloat and gesture GIRUY, all day long. I doubt if Alfredo even truly knows what the gesture, means. Time for VAR and Ref accountability, for 'proven bias.' Complaint to FIFA regarding suspected bias and different treatment of our players, should be made by our board. I mean, it's NOT, like we don't have them 'banged to rights', for poor decisions and 'questionably biased, decisions.' We have a back catalogue of suspected bias/incompetence incidents. Time, we bit back!

  5. I don't think Morelos got the second yellow for pointing to his ears and mouth to say "I heard you". He got it for the "get it up you" sign. And really when you are on a yellow card already it's stupid to run the risk, and more importantly, give them the opportunity to send you off because you know they will take it.
    Having said that while I don't think we can complain about it we are entitled to ask when the same rules will be applied to other teams. That is the real issue here. I also think we should be making more noise about the 2,penalties we were denied, 2 of several in the last few weeks starting at Aberdeen.
    It must be a sign that we are getting close when suddenly these things start to happen. Having been unable to stop us as a team we will now see our top scorer Morelos shamefully targeted by fans, referees and the media to get him suspended.

  6. The Red was harsh imo ..But ..Morelos has been on the edge for the last few weeks .. 1. A kick out at Hamilton after just coming on the pitch .lucky boy
    Ceptic .. endless fouls without a card ..and he was heavily involved at Aberdeen and Yesterday
    Granted it was never a red yesterday .. but (pelters welcome ) I think the refs have let him away with murder this season as he is cleaning his game up ?
