Video: Bitton’s ridiculous rugby tackle on Morelos earns Celtic star a straight red

The first Old Firm derby of the new year had been a keenly contested one as expected.

With Rangers looking to go 19 points clear of Celtic with a win, Steven Gerrard’s side were being comfortably pegged back until a ridiculous intervention from Nir Bitton.

As the hosts broke down the right hand side, Alfredo Morelos looked to be in on goal as he turned Bitton.

In a moment of utter madness, the Celtic man decided to rugby tackle the striker, leaving the referee with no option other than to issue a direct red.
