Steven Gerrard wants to donate Alfredo Morelos wages to Rangers fans

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has said that he will recommend that the club fine forward Alfredo Morelos a week wages following his red card during the Gers' 2-1 loss at Celtic Park on Sunday.

Morelos received his fifth red card of the season during the defeat and Gerrard will now recommend that the Rangers board fine him a week's wages and donate the payment to the fans that have had to endure his ill-discipline.

Morelos has had to deal with some off-field issues with the death of his sister still quite heavy in his life and the Colombian forward said that he takes joy out of looking after his family in light of the hardship.

In an interview in Spanish with Rangers TV, the 22-year-old said: "My family supports me very unconditionally, they always give me that motivation, that love, to do things better every day.

"The love of my parents, my sisters, it makes me proud to be doing what I've been doing so far.

"My little sister was a very big motivation for me. I told my mother that I would take care of them, because we were a very poor family there in Colombia, in Cerete.

"After my little sister died, I told my mother one day I'm going to take care of you and my whole family and, thank God, we are now doing really well.

"Now I am in this great institution where everything is really working out for me.

"My family is very proud of me. Honestly, my mother, my father, they cry, they cry watching me play.

"My parents were here, they now know how it is, the atmosphere here and more so now seeing it themselves.

"It's something they feel proud of, of their son, because I do it with a lot of love for them too. I'm happy to make my family very happy."
