Alfredo Morelos can't be compared to Rangers hero Ally McCoist until he scores against Celtic - Hotline

  Alfredo Morelos can't be compared to Rangers hero Ally McCoist until he scores against Celtic - Hotline Fraser Wilson takes your calls after another frantic evening of European action.Whether the goals came against cannon fodder or not, the Colombian striker is now just one strike shy of Ally McCoist’s European record at Ibrox.

Don't let anyone tell you Scottish football isn't the most bizarre place in the world.

When the creators of ITV's hit gameshow The Chase made their questions this week, they wouldn't have predicted the fallout north of the border.

A question asking which Scottish club was 'triple relegated' in 2012 sparked anger among sections of the Celtic support who insist Rangers were liquidated rather than relegated.

That's a debate that has been raging on in Scottish football for eight years and although the vast majority of football fans moved on from it seven-and-a-half years ago, there's still some who don't agree.

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.

And one Celtic fan incurred the wrath of a Chaser after they told them to sort their researchers out over the question.

Quiz guru Jenny Ryan took to Twitter to initially criticised the supporter - named Steven - for telling her to smile while on screen.

He replied to say: One favour, though. Tell your researches that Rangers were not ‘triple-relegated’ in 2012.

"The SFA articles of of association state that club/company are the same. The co. Went bust, and a new club formed.”

Jenny responded: “They’re not my researchers.”

And when Steven hit back with “Ok.. THE researchers”, she blasted: “I don’t get to tell the researchers anything, they don’t work for me.

"But I *do* know that all questions on the Chase are fully sourced and then verified, to ensure the accuracy of the material.”

20 players Celtic could possibly target in pre-contract January deals .
Celtic managed to bring in six players during the summer transfer window. AC Milan left-back Diego Laxalt was the final addition, arriving on a season-long loan deal. The Uruguayan joins Vasilios Barkas, Albian Ajeti, Shane Duffy, Moi Elyounoussi and David Turnbull through the door at Celtic Park, and the Hoops’ recruitment team will more than likely be turning their attention to the January window. The turn of the year also gives the club the opportunity to explore pre-contract agreement deals with players who are out of contract at the end of the 2020/21 season.
