Rangers FC manager Steven Gerrard will face no action over post-match comments he made about a referee after a disciplinary charge was ruled not proven on Monday. The former Liverpool and England midfielder received a notice of complaint for comments made following Dundee United defender Ryan Edwards' challenge on Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos during a Premiership match at Ibrox last month.

The Colombian forward suffered a gash and left on a stretcher.

Match referee Kevin Clancy, however, took no action against Edwards and Gerrard said after the match: "I'd be very interested to see what the decision would have been from the officials had the shoe been on the other foot and it was Alfredo who had made that tackle." Gerrard was accused of breaking rule covering comments that indicate bias or incompetence by a match official but a disciplinary hearing found it not proved.
