I have become totally pissed off with Morelos' temperament. Okay, he is targeted with heavy challenges/tackles but he cannot constantly react to them....I've lost count of the number of cards he has received this season which lead to suspensions which do the team no good at all. Having said that, apparently (and I've read this) the incident with Broadfoot was a reaction to Broadfoot studding Morelos on his calf/achilles as they walked off at halftime. Broadfoot has been at this kind of dirty sneaky actions before...remember how he stood 3 times on Ryan Jack's foot last season looking for a reaction which he got & Jack was sent off ? This is the kind of thing Morelos has to stop as he is a target for every defender in the country....easy to wind up. I notice that Dicker made no mention of Broadfoot's part in the incident. 

I also notice that the whinging Killie man failed to mention the guy Power who almost took off Jack's head with a very high raised boot recently which only received a yellow.

My opinion re Goldson's challenge...yeah, foul (don't know if he got a yellow) but not a red due to the position of the players as in it wasn't a clear goal scoring chance being denied.

Gerrard said after the game that there were bad, constant fouls on Rangers players but I don't read about any of them being highlighted.
