Morelos third caution: when, why and what now

103

It did not take three weeks for Alfredo Morelos to be notified of his third yellow card, received at Celtic Park on 29 December.  All three cautions were reported to Premiership clubs at the same time as every other caution issued in the SPFL on 29 December (a few days after the match).  So it was on the match report.

The media have been briefed that no further action will be taken against the player, or Ryan Kent for his gesture.  It is not clear who briefed them, Newco or the SFA PR.  Either way, a media briefing is only that.  It is not clear that anyone has made this decision.  Celtic are keen to know why this is being reported and why it would be different from other third cautions in a single game.

It would be accurate to say that Celtic are even more animated about the treatment of Ryan Christie and how this was flagrantly inconsistent with the Newco players’ regular attacks on Celtic players, not seen by the referee and not subject to any disciplinary measures.

The SFA have received detailed comparisons of the Christie incident, with several incidents involving Morelos and one involving Allan McGregor, where the SFA procedures resulted in no action.  Unlike the Morelos gesture in December, which is without comparison, the Christie incident was not judged the same way as similar incidents by Newco players.  This assertion is demonstrably true.

You can draw your own conclusions on why these matters are treated differently, I doubt your view will vary far from Celtic’s.  We are in a fight for a hugely important league title and anything that can be done to stop us, is being done.

If you think there is not a consistent or level playing field, you are probably right.  The match officials on the day appear to have done everything by the book – there is no “Dougie, Dougie” scenario.  It is what subsequently happens, in small groups, behind closed doors, where subjective matters are assessed differently.  And don’t let 8-in-a-row and a Treble Treble fool you, this is still Scotland, our achievements are enormously resented.

Not for the first time, I suggested a statement, like the other lot a fond of, would go down well, but was told this isn’t a popularity contest, that it would not enhance our position and that there are actual things we can do to improve our chances of winning the league (which is another story, but it’s being worked on).

    It’s all very well celtic asking questions. The problem is we meekly accept the made up ridiculous answers to the questions. Is it not about time we CHALLENGED the answers and start kicking some arse?

  4. Did you hear about the guy who fell into the river and a wee wumman

     

    threw him a bar of soap?

     

    She thought it would wash him ashore.

    I have absolutely no idea what that last paragraph means.

     

     

    Any help fellas?

     

    ————–

     

    My guess, it’s about buying better players helps us win the league

  6. Ah cheers The_Huddle,

     

     

    So, on the matter itself, sweet FA once again from the board….

     

     

    It’s been said before here but it seems clear Lawell is over the barrel for something in the past – possibly grubby paw prints on the cash cow sevco’s return. Christie’s alleged brutality against nothing to see here Morelos is pretty blatant trolling now.

    Like you’s i’m baffled, think i’ll retire until the gemme.

    ” The SFA have received……. ”

     

    Presumably from Celtic F.C.

     

     

    It would appear that the serial whingers , moaning that ” P.L./ the Board / should grow a pair ” were wrong all along .

     

    Not , of course , for the first time.

     

    Will the huns best friends learn ? Don`t hold your breath .

  9. I think the last paragraph means we will do a Sevco when it comes to statements. Rather than write a strongly worded letter to the SFA and gently leak to the press that we have done so, we will now write said letter the SHOUT about it from the rooftops at the same time as crowing about all the injustices and bad decisions that go against us….well….it certainly works for sevco

  10. not a popularity contest ? Really ?

     

     

    How out of touch are the plc ? They are perceived as gutless cowards sitting on plies of cash (brought in by the supporters) and scared to tackle the SFA.

     

     

    So what about the league challenge: that should not prevent a statement being made. Publish what was sent to the SFA re Ryan Christie. Why are we the supporters kept in the dark at every turn since the liquidation of Rangers.

     

     

    I have just about had it with our plc and not sure I will be back in the same seat I have sat in in the NWU since Fergus built it. I am not alone in these thoughts.

     

     

    So plc – stop lying down, publish your comparison of the favourable treatment to The Rangers players in particular the throat slitter gesturer. Spend some cash on quality new recruits to deliver the league. And tell the truth about RES 12 / the 5 way agreement AND be clear that we as a football club do not accept the lies that a liquidated football club can transfer titles. It’s risible.

     

     

    I hope the plc understands the impact on their dividends and bonuses if the league is not delivered this year.

     

     

    If only we had Fergus running the show…………………

  11. On that “influence” thing……….

     

     

     

     

     

     

    The cause that we fight for as Celtic supporters can be waged on several fronts.

     

     

     

     

    The huns have the media and Shortie is a guid example.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Every little helps…..

     

     

     

     

     

     

    This type of repetitive low to medium intensity interference has a knock-on effect.

     

     

     

     

    For weeks now, “dominant display”, “rampant rangers” – “in-form……sumbdy” strolls past, easy etc etc etc have featured prominently in game write ups or opinion pieces associated with hundom.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    I was back late last night so missed anything about thur game until I checked in on here and then had a swatch at Shortie.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    I immediately looked for the ” penalty”….and wasn’t disappointed.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    I felt sure that Stranraer would have been humped with a heavy scoreline. Shorties puff piece had all the hallmarks of the Laptop Loyal with thems “easing past” lowly Stranraer – ad nauseum……etc etc,. However a cursory glance at how the game actually unfolded tells a different story. First goal from a fraudulent corner…aye, then a wee insurance with the required ” penalty rangers” aye again.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Now, if the hun narrative is established that they are a free-wheelin’ rampant, ragin’ goal machine then that does something to the general psyche and builds an expectation and adds a little something of inevitability ………..which can lead to teams being beat before they step on the park or the fans have taken their seats.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    That’s what we’re up against, now, more so than ever.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    HH

  12. So, effectively this character has been cleared to use this throat cutting gesture every week? I’m not understanding this.

  13. I took a screenshot of the SPFL Website with statistics from the match which indicates 2 yellows and one red for Morelos

     

     

    No idea what is happening with this shit but I have screenshot on my office computer which I can forward to anyone when I return to work

  14. I have to disagree with a comment in the lead article…….

     

    I think everything is a popularity contest nowadays and we need to be mindful of this.

     

     

    Buying the appropriate player for the Club is not a sop to the Support, it’s an imperative for the product.

     

     

    Who said management was easy……this is when the Big Bucks are earned.

     

     

    More evidence of industry in this regard required – the base needs attention.

     

     

    HH

  15. I may be a bit of a bore on this over the coming weeks so please bear with me.

     

     

    But.

     

     

    Anyone help source me a ticket for Copenhagen please ?

  16. I am 59 and nothing has changed in the way that we are treated in relation to them.

     

    I’ll tell you how we can improve our chances of winning the league. Horses for courses in certain games , namely against the hun. Also make tactical and substitutions earlier in a game .

  17. statement on Saturday, the club said: “Rangers is astounded by the notices of complaint issued by the SFA.

     

     

    “It is concerning that it seems the governing body is seeking to hold Rangers to a different and more stringent code of conduct than that applied to others, with unprecedented charges being levied against the club.

     

     

    This shower couldn’t get a red face at a bonfire

  18. Where’s the boys in bloo in awe this???

     

     

    Where’s rent-a-quote “members” o’ parliament in awe this???

     

     

    Too busy celebration’ or craftily influenced to keep schtum???

     

     

    Might a clever way be found to ask sumdy a question….ah mean come on!

  19. TEUCHTER ÁR LÁ

     

     

    Worry not, the tongs are not going to get you.

     

     

    To be honest, I confused you for Heb in my slightly inebriated state.

     

     

    HH!

  20. Morelos made a “game over” gesture to the home support he walked off the park after being sent off

     

     

    From The Hun online

  21. I don’t think there’s any need for Celtic to publish the dossier presented to defend Christie.

     

     

    We seen what Morelos got away on several players and we seen what McGregor got away with on Ajer.

     

     

    Morelos’ red card kick out on McKenna getting overturned was breathtaking last season.

     

     

    The lack of consistency is obvious.

     

     

    I’d far rather see us buy a few more players and see out another treble as go down the road of issuing pointless statements.

  22. GuyFawkesaforeverhero on

    Good luck to the Celts today, I hope players and fans are switched on from the first whistle.

     

     

    I can’t speak about our two games after Christmas but in the five leagues games earlier in December, Taylor Mbombo and Frimpong set up so many chances on a plate for Eddy, Forrest, Ntcham, Christie, Rogic, Johnston and even Griff we should have passed 110 goals scored in the season rather than the 100 we reached.

     

     

    Intending to buy my seat for the Copenhagen game the day after we sign a grown up 9, hungry for trophies.

     

     

    31 and counting.

    ===========================================================

     

     

    Agreed.

     

    Why would we follow the lead of the huns ?

    I listened to radio last night.

     

     

    The knuckle narrative appears to be

     

     

    1/morelos throat slitting gesture

     

    – laugh at guffery spouted to justify hate

     

    2/ kents animated shooting gesture.

     

    – laugh at Neil McCann excusing such nonsense as a rap gesture

     

    3 coach staff member for behaviour

     

     

    All will be incorporated in a club charge.probably a fine.no individual disrepute charge.

     

    The skwinty football association.overseeing the goats

     

     

    Use it as strength Celtic,beat them.

     

    Let’s not be suprised at the cheating hun

     

    Work harder work better

     

    One Celtic

  25. lets all do the huddle on

    its been well explained on here why our board never take the action they should against the ridiculous sfa bias

     

     

    what can be done about it tho?

  26. I see that Statement O’Clock was almost 2 hours ago…

     

    “RANGERS is astounded by the notices of complaint issued by the SFA.

     

    It is concerning that it seems the governing body is seeking to hold Rangers to a different and more stringent code of conduct than that applied to others, with unprecedented charges being levied against the Club.

     

    Rangers fans can be assured that it is our firm intention to resist the charges in the most robust manner possible. Rangers will make further comment after the weekend.”

     

    Occasionally I’m glad that we don’t respond in kind ;-)

  27. What a pile of p!ss on here. Just beat them on the pitch. All the moaning about gestures, who cares, they had no impact on the result. Seems just as many sensitive flowers in our support as there is in the team.
