Alfredo Morelos is a player that is never far away from the headlines.

While the fiery Colombian striker has been prolific in front of goal this season - he has 29 this season alone - his discipline has been a constant thorn in his side.

And his short fuse was lit again in the Old Firm derby, with Morelos picking up what could be the stupidest red card of his career - and that's saying something.

The referee was informed by his assistant that the Colombian had pretty much clotheslined Celtic captain Scott Brown off the ball.

Replays quickly showed that the Rangers striker simply had to go and it almost beggars belief that a player would do such a thing with so many cameras around.

You can watch the footage below.

What on earth is Morelos thinking? That's the Colombian's fifth red card of the season so far, although one of those was rescinded.

Brown was spotted by cameras laughing in the direction of Morelos after his childish behaviour.

Steven Gerrard must want to tear his hair out watching his main man in front of goal constantly leave the rest of the team a man light.

With Jermain Defoe fit and available, you have to wonder if the Rangers boss will eventually give up on Morelos after his latest ridiculous act.
