Celtic maintained their supremacy over Rangers at Celtic Park in yet another fierce Old Firm derby. But the rejuvenated Gers almost stunned the home crowd when they found an equaliser despite being down to ten men early in the game. However, a late heartbreak spoiled their party as a howler from skipper James Tavernier allowed the Hoops to grab a winner via James Forrest.
The famous derby, as always, was full of drama and a chain of events produced an extremely engaging ninety minutes of football. Odsonne Edouard scored a stunner to hand the Hoops a perfect start whereas Alfredo Morelos received his fifth marching order of the season to infuriate the Rangers fans across the globe.
Celtic fans and many other accounts took no time in bantering the Columbian via social media and here are some instances how they mocked Morelos on Twitter following his off-the-ball scuffle with skipper Scott Brown.

Alfredo Morelos has received a total of 18 yellow cards and 5 red cards..
Can someone let him know that 32red is a shirt sponsor and not a card target? pic.twitter.com/hEajeeFVsc

What’s the world record for red cards in a season 😂
— MikeyD (@mikeybhoy01) March 31, 2019
Alfredo Morelos has got more red cards this season than there were in the 2018 World Cup (5-4). There were 736 players at the 2018 World Cup.

Yet the visitors found their way back into the game when sensational Ryan Kent equalized against the run of play. His goal silenced the home crowd for a while. However, Forrest came to the rescue in the dying minutes to capitalise on Tavernier’s error. The victory stretched the gap to 13 points between these two age-old rivals, and the supporters celebrated the occasion vehemently painting the city in green.
Great assist by Tavernier for CalMac tbh

Didny like Celtic line up at start but very good first half but subs on too early which affected game plan after injurys. Other than sloppiness good to put them back in the box, great determination to wrap title up #CelticFC 🍀⭐️🍀

And now Celtic fans can continue laughing at Gers. #CelticFC
