Furious Morelos fires back at van Bronckhorst’s Champions League snub

Alfredo Morelos has fired a defiant message at Giovanni van Bronckhorst after being left on the bench for the Champions League qualifier against PSV Eindhoven. 

The Colombian striker hasn’t started a match in five months but was expected to play some part in last night’s tie after making three substitute appearances in the last 10 days. 

Antonio Colak has started every competitive match this season, last night he played the full 90 minutes with van Bronckhurst using just two of the five substitutes available to him. 

After the match the Ibrox boss was short and not so sweet with Emma Dodds when she asked why Morelos hadn’t been brought on with that message relayed back to the self-styled Buffalo who turned to Instagram just before midnight. 

A warrior is not the one who always wins. Is the one who always fights. 

‘He’s carrying some timber’ has been about the most generous of the comment made about Morelos during his brief appearances off the bench. 

With less than a year to run on his contract he could find himself demoted from the first choice status he has enjoyed during his five years at Ibrox. 

Van Bronckhorst is expected to avoid a Friday media conference to preview the game against Hibs in favour of an in-house interview about how wonderfully well everything went last night.

    A wee word to Sean The Mac and SFATHENADIROFCHIFTNESS just what is this world coming to when you can’t tell a joke without PEOPLE being offended.
    There are punters on here calling sevco supporter’s scum using swear words to put them down going on about all sorts of religious issues ah tell a joke you 2 dafties are going TONTO.

  • SFATHENADIROFCHIFTINESS says:

    I’m not going Tonto. I’m merely pointing out the incontrovertible fact that the basis for the ‘Irishman’ jokes has its roots in anti-Irish racism.
    No quibbles, no ifs and buts. it has no place on any forum least of all on Celtic sites.

    The other point I made was that your repeated references to The Bennies at Ibrox was another
    example of intolerance at worst and insensitivity at the minimum. The character Benny from the Crossroads soap opera aired so many years ago was described as slow witted and subjected to much derision and mild abuse in the storylines. Actions that in earlier times were considered OK. Similarly your references to the Comedian (sic) Benny Hill, again reflected on attitudes that are outdated and now, due to the struggles of Women for equality before the law and similarly other previously disadvantaged groups, whether due to Physical, Mental, Racial and Social discrimination have strived hard over the years for real equality such that the previously accepted norms of behaviour, including Comedy, are no longer legally and socially acceptable.

    They are attitudes of a bygone day and to try to defend them on the basis of ‘its only a joke’ is to deny the real hurt caused to millions of people over the years. I could have saved myself a lot of bother and stated that your material just wasn’t funny but that would be ignoring the struggles, ongoing in a lot of cases, of people who are affected by all these issues.

      The Irish still laugh at themselves mate,I should know,I’m second generation,and amongst them all the time.I think it’s in the context,people need to realise this.I for one am fully aware of Irish history,but we are among friends in this sight and scud doesn’t need a sanctimonious long winded lecture

    • Eamonn Little says:

      Colak does a mean No Surrender face on scoring,a look cultivated by strikers of the old club down through the years.This has got him immediate kudos with the Bearmacht,and between that and Buffalos padding ,it’s not looking good for him.

    It’s so unfair for Morelos.

    He should slap in a transfer request to the ungrateful GvB, immediately.

    Then Morelos can just sit back, take another bite of his Greggs sausage roll…

    and watch the tumbleweed roll by!

    A disgruntled character like Morelos in the sevco squad is the last thing GvB needs. 🙂

  • Bennybhoy57 says:

    Totally agree when Morelos throws his toys out the pram its not a good look.
    Sitting in a huff with his bawjaw face all puffed out is a sight to behold.
    If there was a club interested he would be off.
    At least he would make them a couple million!!
