Derek McInnes: 'Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos deserved red card'


RANGERS have appealed the red card that was shown to striker Alfredo Morelos during Sunday's Premiership draw with Aberdeen.

Gerrard took charge of his first Rangers league match, securing a point versus Aberdeen following Bruce Anderson's 93rd minute equaliser. Aberdeen didn't have any idea against us.

Rangers appointed Gerrard as manager earlier this summer with the Liverpool legend brought in to end their wait for the Scottish Premiership title. "I thought we were very good with 11 men, I thought we were even better when we went down to 10".

"It's frustrating to lose the late goal".

"It's frustrating because we put in so much effort, every single player to a man was excellent tactically". He's a great player, a great guy and I'm very excited to play with him.

While a third reflected on the decision made by Rangers' board.

The player though will not be eligible to feature for the Gers in the Europa League until the group stage after having already represented Osijek in the qualifiers.

"The onus was on us to try and find answers", McInnes told the BBC. If we had that little bit of quality in that final pass, we would have got another goal, maybe two or three.

Aberdeen suffered a further blow soon afterwards when highly-rated centre-back Scott McKenna, who is wanted by Swansea as a replacement for Alfie Mawson after he left for Fulham, went off injured.

Brendan Rodgers's side began their title defence with a comfortable 3-1 home win over promoted Livingston on Saturday.
