Alfredo Morelos has broken his silence after the Rangers striker sat out of his side's win over Celtic.

The Colombian was named on the bench for the season's sixth and final Old Firm derby.

And that's exactly where the 26-year-old remained for the entirety of the game.

Goals from Todd Cantwell, John Souttar, and Fashion Sakala secured the three points for Michael Beale's side.

Beale confirmed over a week ago that Morelos will depart Ibrox this summer upon the expiry of his contract.

After Rangers' 1-0 win over Aberdeen, Beale appeared to aim a parting shot at Morelos for his poor energy levels.

The Gers boss has since cleared up that there is no issue between himself and the player.

It remains to be seen whether El Bufalo has played his last game for the Light Blues after being left as an unused sub at the weekend.

But the hitman has taken to social media for the first time since the derby win, giving his thoughts after being left on the bench.

Accompanying a photo of him celebrating in a Gers shirt, pointing to the sky, Morelos said: "Only faith in you my God."

It's believed there is interest from Turkish clubs in Morelos, as well as Sevilla in La Liga.

Meanwhile, Steven McLean was quite right to ignore Celtic's claims for a penalty during their loss to Rangers on Saturday.

The referee waved away loud shouts from the Hoops players after Connor Goldson appeared to handle the ball.

However, the Gers defender was on the deck while the ball struck him.

The incident wasn't checked by Greg Aitken on VAR, despite the strong protestation from those in green and white.
