Morelos was sent off against Aberdeen on Wednesday - the third time he has been shown a red card against the Pittodrie club this season - and Rangers are now waiting to hear the results of an appeal against the Colombian's dismissal.

However, Rangers could accept the charge and take the punishment before then.

Morelos netted twice before being sent off against Aberdeen for the third time this term, after referee Bobby Madden deemed he had stamped on defender Scott McKenna, who was also shown a red card after the tangle.

Rangers appealed the decision but their plea was thrown out on Friday night and Morelos will miss Saturday evening's Scottish Cup fifth-round tie against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park.

The Colombian received a mandatory two-game ban from all competitions for the red card, with a further Premiership game added because it was his second sending-off in the league this season.

McAllister said: "I felt Alfredo's reputation went ahead of him on this one, and I think he was trying to get out the way".

"It was noticed, spoke about and gave us motivation before the game".

McAllister also defended McGregor, who caught Ferguson with his outstretched boot in the shin as he raced off his line to smother a through ball.

"I know Allan McGregor well".

After reviewing television footage, the Rangers goalkeeper has been charged and could face a two-game ban should he be found guilty at a hearing on Tuesday.
