Alfredo Morelos was lucky to escape a red card after standing on Hibs defender Ryan Porteous.
The Rangers striker was involved in a coming together with the centre-half and appeared to stamp on his opponent’s knee as he lay on the deck following a challenge.
Co-commentator for the game, broadcast on Sky Sports, Andy Walker reckoned the Colombian was lucky to avoid being sent-off.

“You see it from this angle and it could easily be a red for Morelos,” the former Celtic striker said.
Morelos and Porteous have history and it was the Hibs ace who narrowly avoided an early shower back in September when the pair clashed in an off the ball incident. He was booked but could have been shown the red by referee Don Robertson.
Gers’ stars then refused to shake hands with the Scotland under-21 internationalist at full-time.
