WE LOVE ALF & WILL TAME HIS RED RAGES

Dundee v Rangers

RANGERS have vowed to help rather than ham­mer Al­fredo More­los in the wake of his red card mad­ness.

The South Amer­i­can livewire was sent off for the third time this sea­son af­ter lash­ing out at Graeme Shin­nie in Wed­nes­day’s de­feat to Aberdeen at Ibrox.

More­los misses to­mor­row’s trip to base­ment boys Dundee and next week’s visit of Hamil­ton Ac­cies.

The 17-goal Colom­bian’s send­ing off was the eighth of the sea­son for Rangers and came just 24 hours af­ter Steven Ger­rard warned his play­ers in a squad meet­ing to sort out their dis­ci­pline. But Light Blues as­sis­tant boss Gary Mcal­lis­ter (in­set) said: “Al­fredo is a young player who we value and we want to try and help him through the other side of this.

“It is a lit­tle is­sue. He is a goal scorer and they are hard to find. We have got a young player that is very com­pet­i­tive, he is a goal threat, our main goal threat.

“It is that ac­cep­tance that when he does get a yel­low card that he has got to change, his whole dy­namic has got to change, be­cause he runs the risk of a se­cond yel­low.”
