A number of Celtic fans are incredibly unhappy with Alfredo Morelos following his throat-slitting gesture towards a section of supporters on Sunday.
The striker was sent off in the dying embers of Rangers’ 2-1 win at Parkhead for a second yellow card, and needlessly made a throat-slitting gesture towards Celtic fans on his way off the pitch.
Following the incident, a number of fans have expressed their anger with the striker on social media, with some calling for further retrospective action.

READ CELTIC VERDICT
Morelos’ gesture was certainly uncalled for and the SFA need to investigate the incident.
The striker was correctly sent off despite for a dive in an attempt to win a penalty late on, despite Rangers being moments away from victory, and his awful personal record against Celtic continues.
