CONTROVERSIAL Alfredo Morelos was red-carded for the EIGHTH time in his Ibrox career in his side’s 2-2 draw with Hibs at Easter Road this afternoon.

The Colombian striker, who had come on as a second-half substitute for Atonio Colak, was ordered off by referee Willie Collum after sending an elbow into the face of defender Marijan Cabraya.

The match official had no hesitation as he banished Morelos who caught up with his erring team-mate John Lundstram who had been sent packing earlier.

GRIN AND BEAR IT…Alfredo Morelos smiles after his red card.

The midfielder had also been dismissed after the turnaround for a wild lunge at Martin Boyle.

Once again, Collum, who had a good view of the incident, was quick to mete out punishment.

It took a stoppage-time goal from Josh Campell to give the home side a draw when he thundered a 20-yard drive high past stranded keeper Jon McLaughlin.

SEEING RED…John Lundstram is the first to go by referee Willie Collum.

THE EQUALISER…Martin Boyle gets in ahead of two defenders to knock the ball wide of Jon McLaughlin.

PICK IT OUT…Josh Campbell is on the edge of the penalty-box D as he fires an unstoppable effort into the net.

The visitors had taken the lead with a dodgy penalty-kick just before half-time that was despatched by James Tavernier.

Boyle equalised with a first-time effort from close-range after a left-wing cross, but Tom Lawrence headed Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side back into the lead with an effort that left David Marshall helpless.

However, justice was done when Campbell thumped in the leveller.
