Hibernian boss, Jack Ross said Alfredo Morelos should have been out before he could take Rangers closer to the title at Easter Road.
The 24-year-old scored his 11th goal of the season right after half-time.
declared that the Colombian stamped on Ryan Porteous’ knee.
The referee, Kevin Clancy missed most of the incident but Morelos – who has been given a ban this season – may be facing another call from the compliance officer in future days.
– whose team suffered frustration after their Betfred Cup semi-final as they couldn't reclaim the third spot from Aberdeen – announced:
“It’s a red card. You can ask me and I don’t think my opinion is going to be different to every single person here and every single person who watched it.
“We defended brilliantly throughout the game and that was one lapse for us.
‘I’m not going to put that as an excuse for conceding but I would point to the fact that he shouldn’t have been on the pitch, but I think that’s plain for everyone to see.”
The result keptRangers
at the top and Gerrard preferred to concentrate on the performance of his team rather than Morelos’ latest run-in with an opponent.
“I haven’t had time to look at any of the incidents from the game. I remember a few from both sides – but I’d rather talk about the performance and the level of it.
“It was another fantastic team goal. Alfredo will deserve the credit for finishing it off.
“I knew we weren’t coming here to play a technical game. We wanted to really find the space and when we got into the final third then show our quality.
“But I think we deserved that team goal because of the application we’ve given to the game."
