Rangers were held to a 1-1 draw in their opening Scottish Premiership fixture with Aberdeen, however, the fans were delighted with the performance of one of their newest additions.

Despite the controversy surrounding the decision, though, Rangers pushed on and took the lead in the 30th minute when James Tavernier converted from the penalty spot.

Morelos was shown an early red card after kicking out following a barge by Aberdeen defender Scott McKenna. "I thought we were tremendous".

Gerrard nearly saw his months of preparation go out the window after 12 minutes of the fixture against Aberdeen at Pittodrie, as Rangers forward Alfredo Morelos received a straight red card for his part in an off the ball incident. "Aberdeen only had one idea and it was to lump it into the box".

Manager Steven Gerrard said: "As a club we don't condone that type of behaviour, we don't want to see scenes like that".

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has condemned the violence that occurred outside Ibrox before his side's Europa League clash with Osijek.

Making the hard away trip to Aberdeen, Rangers went down to 10 men in the early exchanges when Alfredo Morelos received a red card for a kick on Scott McKenna. I don't think we need to get involved in that.

"The first 12 minutes when we had a eleven men I think we were picking it up in the pockets, Josh, Alfredo and Murph were coming into nice wee pockets with the midfield three".

"It's always going to be frustrating because we put so much effort".

'So we will speak to him about the part he has played in it.

And former Liverpool assistant manager Miller thinks Gerrard would only leave Ibrox for the Reds, Manchester United or Arsenal.

Sutton certainly wasn't impressed with Gerrard's comments this week, so he certainly won't be taking any nonsense when Old Firm games roll around this season.

And while Gerrard says Rangers may appeal the red card, he acknowledged that the Colombian striker "left the referee with a decision". "But we feel hard done by because we felt he was provoked twice with violent barges from McKenna".
