Livingston 0-1 Rangers: Alfredo Morelos strike puts Steven Gerrard’s side on verge of title

Match report as Alfredo Morelos’ late strike hands Rangers a 1-0 victory at Livingston; Morelos denied a penalty and booked for simulation in first half; Steven Gerrard sent off at half-time for protesting decision; However, Morelos’ late strike sends Rangers 18 points clear at top

Rangers moved to the verge of a first Scottish Premiership title since 2011 after Alfredo Morelos’ late strike handed them a 1-0 victory at Livingston.

Morelos was involved in the big talking point of the first half as the striker was booked for simulation after going down under a challenge from goalkeeper Max Stryjek.

The incident led to Steven Gerrard protesting referee John Beaton’s decision at half-time and the Rangers boss was sent to the stands after being shown two yellow cards.

It didn’t hamper the league leaders, who eventually took the lead in the 87th minute with Morelos in the right place at the right time to tap home after Stryjek parried Steven Davis’ shot.

The win sees Gerrard’s men move 18 points clear at the top of the table and they could win the title as early as Sunday if they beat St Mirren on Saturday and Celtic drop points at Dundee United on Sunday, live on Sky Sports.
