Alan Brazil slams Alfredo Morelos, and makes some more bold claims as he discussed Sunday’s Glasgow Derby match between Rangers and Celtic.
Celtic were thoroughly beaten by Rangers on Sunday during the Glasgow Derby match that may have more implications than originally thought. The Hoops still sit atop the Scottish Premiership League table, but Rangers still have a game in hand that could see them take the league by a point.
Perhaps the most disappointing aspect of the match is that the Hoops could have walked away with a result. Whether it be a tie or even the win, the Hoops would have been in better position heading into the three-week break. Ryan Christie botched a penalty that could have allowed for either result.
Perhaps the most concerning issue of the day was that of Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos who made a throat slitting gesture towards Celtic fans. As if on cue, the Colombian said he was responding to racial abuse to combat the likely harsh punishment coming down the pipe.
Even Celtic critic Alan Brazil called out Morelos on his Sports Breakfast Show on talkSPORT, while making some other bold claims:
“Morelos again. He’s a clown. I don’t know what’s wrong with the guy – No, I think Celtic will still win the title. They are still two points clear, by the way. Rangers will slip-up. I am going to get slaughtered by Celtic fans, but we need Rangers back, we need a fight right until the end.”
This isn’t the first time Alfredo Morelos has done something like this, and Brazil’s description of him as a ‘clown’ is fitting. The striker has never shown up in Glasgow Derby matches, and is constantly hurting his team with the numerous red cards he receives. This year alone the Colombian has accrued two red cards by way of second yellows. His lack of discipline will be his downfall, as well as his teams.
Despite what you believe, Rangers are back, and the Hoops must make significant changes if they wish to continue to dominate. If not, the Alan Brazil may be right in the sense that Rangers will always be right there until the very end.
