Alan McGaw, Alloa, said: “A rock solid performance done in Gibraltar by Rangers. Another clean sheet and I was glad to see Alfredo Morelos banging in the goals again and looking happy.”

Samuel Ruddock, Ayr, said: “Another Morelos goal in Europe that wasn't from the penalty spot for Gordon Ashley to add to his Morelos and Rangers obsessed information folder. It's time to put Gordon's comments next to Shuggie and Duggie and keep all the comics on one page.”

Joe Graham, Garrowhill, added: “Gordon Ashley claims Morelos only scores against cannon fodder teams but he did score a double against Lincoln Red Imps and they are a cannon fodder team who beat his so beloved Celtic team not so long ago in the Champions League. Get your facts right Gordon before making your not welcome comments.”

"He has only played twice against the top four nations in two years out of nearly 30 games and scored over 20 goals. If you do not play against the top nations you cannot score against them.”

Tongue-in-cheek Jake Curley emailed: “Does the win against Celtic’s conquerors mean we might be the new Invincibles and could go the season without conceding a goal? Oh happy days.”

It wasn’t all positive though. Eddie Easson, Ballingry, said: “A lot of two faced Rangers fans will be on here singing the praises of Morelos. Two weeks ago they wanted him gone.”

And Stephen Mulhern, Dumbarton, said: “Now that Morelos has scored a couple of goals against cannon fodder in Gibraltar no doubt his value will increase by another ten million.

Alfredo Morelos bias is clear and Rangers star would have been red carded if roles were reversed - Hotline

  Alfredo Morelos bias is clear and Rangers star would have been red carded if roles were reversed - Hotline Gordon Parks took your calls and there wasn't really anyone happy with performances over the weekend. Alfredo Morelos taking an elbow from Ryan Porteous was also on the Hotline agenda and there were no Celtic fans handing their side plaudits for taking the spoils against Livingston.

RANGERS assistant boss Gary McAllister has warned Alfredo Morelos that he needs to learn from his actions in order to improve the terrible disciplinary record which has left his future “ He 's a player who I think has got loads of potential and going down the line there's a top, top international footballer there.

Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos will face no disciplinary action for his behaviour against Celtic . Morelos appeared to aim a kick at Scott Brown, caught Anthony But all three incidents were seen in their entirety by match referee John Beaton so no retrospective action can take place on this basis.

On to other matters and Neil Lennon’s comments that the lack of atmosphere at closed doors games was making life difficult was shot down.

Stephen Johnstone, Ardentinny, said: “You don’t hear Gerrard moaning about no atmosphere like his rival Lennon. Enjoy the games as we don’t know what’s round the corner in these difficult times.”

Jimmy Murray, Edinburgh, said: “So having no crowds is the cause of some shocking Celtic performances. Nothing to do with Lennon's total lack of tactical know-how and his side kick, the legendary defence coach Kennedy who couldn’t organise a defence if he tried. Is it not time for another form of testimonial for this Celtic legend?”

Celtic fan Robert McEwan, Mount Vernon, was in positive mood ahead of the weekend though. He said: “I am like most of my fellow Celtic fans, not overjoyed at my team’s recent displays. But I am sure we will be sitting top of the league on Saturday night and probably Sunday onwards as I expect Hibs to try and make a decent fist off it against Rangers.”

Finally, with Spurs on the verge of pulling off a transfer coup, Alan Lough, Dunbar, said: “Gareth Bale goes back to Tottenham where Jose Mourinho will bring out the best in him. It’s pointless to think he wasted his time at Real Madrid because he did give us the greatest Champions League goal of all time with that spectacular overhead kick against Liverpool.”
