Alfredo Morelos has been banned for three matches after Rangers accepted a violent conduct charge against the striker for stamping on Hibernian defender Ryan Porteous.

The Colombia striker was charged by the Scottish FA for the incident in the 1-0 win at Easter Road last Wednesday with Rangers given until Monday to appeal.

An extra one-match has been added to the automatic two-game ban - this is due to Morelos receiving a retrospective red card for a forearm smash on Dundee United defender Mark Connolly in December.

Morelos will miss the Scottish Premiership games against St Johnstone, Hamilton and Kilmarnock.
