Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos avoided any disciplinary charges from various incidents which took place during the 1-0 win over Celtic at Ibrox

However, referee John Beaton saw all three incidents in their entirety and on that basis no retrospective action can be taken.

It is good news for Rangers and the 22-year-old striker, who only recently returned from a two-game domestic suspension after he was sent off in the 1-0 defeat to the Dons at Ibrox on December.

Morelos has picked up 13 yellow cards and three reds this season, albeit one against Aberdeen earlier in the season was rescinded.

Rangers’ defeat of their Old Firm rivals moved them level on points with Celtic at the top of the Premiership table.
