Bruno Alves refused to sit on the bench for Sevco’s humiliating 2-0 defeat from Hamilton Accies.
According to a report in The Times the Portuguese internationalist made his unhappiness known to Graham Murty about playing second fiddle to Young McCrorie and Danny Wilson.
Alves was the star signing of Pedro Caixinha’s £10m summer signing spree but missed out on the Europa League humiliation from Progres Niederkorn.
Rather than face Celtic at the end of September the 36-year-old opted to spend a weekend in Madrid with his bestie CR7 as he recovered from a mystery injury.
Asked about Alves’ absence on Saturday Murty claimed that the defender had suffered a back injury in training.
In a recent interview Alves claimed that Ronaldo and Pepe were constantly phoning him for the inside news at Ibrox with Pepe hoping to join Caixinha’s Latin Revolution.
With Carlos Pena and Eduardo Herrera dropped by Murty the dressing roof rift between the Latin players and the Anglo Saxons looks like developing further.
