    The general consensus is he deserved the second but not the first. Ergo, no red. No one is kidding anyone.

    If Morales had committed the foul that Shinnie hit Big G with it would have been a straight red. I predicted before kick off Morales would see red, after the squealing since Sunday I can't have been the only one who thought this.
    Morales again was stupid last night and the manager will go through him but the player himself must realise himself this can't continue.

    Gerrard really needs to have a serious word with Alfie.
    His challenge for the 2nd yellow card last night was just plain stupid.

    He was trying to break the scoring record yet gets himself sent off in the 64th minute.

    he could have seen straight red for raising his arm anyway.
    how people can try and defend him is beyond me.

    he has had many chances and doesnt seem to ever learn

    The second yellow was never a straight red. Ever. It's hysterical nonsense to try and suggest that.

    I've always been on his side when the refs book him needlessly but last nights second booking was just stupidity and may have cost us at least a point I am now getting a bit fed up with his attitude and something needs to be done with him even though there is a media campaign against him and they obviously want him away. Somehow though I wonder how much Gérard has to do with the aggressive attitude of some of our players and whether he is instilling that in them because when Lafferty came on last night he was the same and could have been red carded.

    Simple, he has to get a final warning from the Gaffer for a start.
    He is unavailable for the next two league games so he will play V Rapid. He owes us after that showing last night so has to be able to fire us into the last 32 of the EL I'm talking a proper performance from the wee man. He will then miss our next league game again against Hamilton, so he has no reason for not being fresh for the run of games leading up to the filth on the 29th.

    Folk saying he needs dropped, well he is now missing our next two league games so in effect he has gotten himself dropped for two games.

    Think this has to be the answer, as dropping him for Lafferty, as has been suggested, would cost us big time

    As soon as he got 1st booking new he was getting a red sub him once he's booked at least we will still play with 11 then if big Kyle scores a few in next 2 games then leave Alfredo on the bench .

    In what way did he cost us 3 points? We were never in a winning position. Obviously what he done was stupid but we should still be able to score against an Aberdeen side when we are both down to 10 men. We never really looked like scoring when we had a man advantage so I don't get the logic that he cost us 3 points

    Also on this subject he was stupid getting that second booking last night but how many times does worse happen with elbows to our players and yet the opposition constantly get away with it.

    I think he's brainless. SG gives a talk on discipline yet after being sent off, he walks up to the ref and starts applauding. Luckily the ref blanked him.
    He's been here 16/17 months yet apparently has very poor English. I wonder if he was good at English, he might understand what SG means.

    I actually thought he was carrying a knock last night-constantly in the first half was bending touching his ankle.....might have been something else.

    It is remarkable though on here he was went from a 20M man to being dropped/rested etc.

    Whatever his flaws he's our best striker he needs to play-he's young developing-that bit he has I suspect can only be refined not removed.

    People saying he didnt deserve the first but did the second

    The second was a straight red card. End of. Blinkers off. No debate. Watch it again.

    The only way he gets away with a yellow is the refs the wrong side

    He needs a captain to look after him.

    I think the new wording regarding red cards, makes it’s a yellow not red. In the same way that his earlier red against Aberdeen was overturned.

    Yes, he’s working his ticket by getting sent off, suspended and missing out on games.

    Sounds like the ideal transfer tactic....

    Make sure there’s a decent replacement in place and then sell him.

    Morelos worth will diminish if he carries on like this - and he clearly can’t follow instructions or has no respect for his boss.

    Correct - dropping him would achieve nothing, but a disgruntled player

    That booking could have easily been a red card. He needs to be financially penalised for his stupidity.

    And Morelos knows this.

    At the moment, he's doing what he pleases and doesn't seem to give a shit about the consequences.

    Gerrard needs to show a bit of strength here.

    The best thing Gerrard can do is sign a striker of similar ability. There’s one at Liverpool.

    Arfield isn't a serial offender.

    Alfie's had 14 bookings in all games this season, that includes the 2 games when he got 2 yellows, for his own sake & the team he's got to wisen up. He's no use to us sitting in the stand.

    SG needs to find a way to get through to him! I’m in no doubt that he has been told to fight hard with the CH’s of other teams - thats not the problem, it’s the off the ball stuff!
    He’s a young man but he’ll learn! He was total horse sh*t the other night though - couldn’t trap a ball!
    Lets not chuck him under the bus just yet.....

    You say that like it's easy to sign a striker of Morelos quality.

    I doubt Solanke will be going anywhere other than another English premiership club on loan.
