Rangers fans slam Alfredo Morelos’ display vs St Johnstone

Rangers lost further ground in the race for the SPFL title on Sunday as St Johnstone scored an equaliser ten minutes from time to secure a result which looks certain to condemn Steven Gerrard and his players to another season in Celtic’s shadow.
