Alfredo Morelos has been dropped from the Rangers squad on the eve of their Champions League playoff clash in Eindhoven.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst made the decision to leave the Colombian out of the squad over “fitness and attitude” issues.

It came following a consultation between the manager and senior players from the club.

The 26-year-old, who was missing from training on Tuesday, was sent off after coming on as a sub in the 2-2 draw with Hibs at the weekend.

He has just recently returned to the squad after a long-term injury from last season that meant he missed the Europa League final in Seville.

The Ibrox side are preparing to take on PSV in the Netherlands following last week’s 2-2 draw in Glasgow in the first leg.

If Rangers win on Wednesday evening they will return to European football’s flagship competition for the first time in 12 years.
