RANGERS striker Alfredo Morelos will miss four Premiership fixtures after being sent off against Celtic on Sunday.

The striker picked up his fifth red card of the campaign for elbowing Hoops skipper Scott Brown during the first half of the 2-1 Old Firm defeat.

Boss Steven Gerrard revealed after the game that he will fine Morelos a weeks’ wages and hand it over to the 800 supporters that were at Parkhead for the third derby clash of the season.

And the Ibrox boss will be without his 29-goal striker for four matches, two of which will be played this week when Rangers host Hearts on Wednesday night and then make the trip to face Motherwell on Sunday.

The next two fixtures have yet to be decided and will be revealed once the SPFL confirm the post-split schedule in the coming days.

Morelos has been hit with a two-game ban for violent conduct and an additional suspension of one match for each previous sending off is applied and is effective 14 days from the match.

Gerrard will also be without the services of Andy Halliday for the clash with Hearts this week after he picked up a second yellow card for his part in the post-match melee as players from both teams piled in at the final whistle.

That may not be the end of the disciplinary fall-out, though, and winger Ryan Kent will find out on Tuesday whether he faces a ban for punching Brown.

Kent lashed out at the 33-year-old in the aftermath of James Forrest’s winner but the incident wasn’t spotted by referee Bobby Madden.

Compliance Officer Clare Whyte has until 3pm on Tuesday to issue Notices of Complaint from the weekend fixtures and various issues are currently being reviewed and investigated.
