Alfredo Morelos came up against an old and unwelcome foe yesterday when he found Craig Gordon in the Hearts goal.
For two years the Columbian ace tried everything to get the better of the Celtic keeper but whatever he came up with Gordon had an answer.
Some of the misses became comical as the £30m rated striker tried and tried to find the net against the team that was swooping up all of the domestic honours. Gordon defied him every time.

The keeper moved back to Hearts last summer, after falling out of favour at Celtic time wasn’t on his side with a big chunk of his career already lost to injury.
After winning The Championship in unconvincing fashion Hearts have looked much more comfortable in the top flight, especially since Andy Halliday was eased out of their regular Starting XI.
Back at Ibrox yesterday Gordon maintained his mastery of Morelos who failed to score when presented with virtually an open goal.
At the other end Allan McGregor flapped at a corner allowing Craig Halkett to head an equaliser, maintaining the unbeaten record of the Edinburgh side who are a point behind Morelos and the league leaders.
