Subbed footballers are never happy and especially so when they are getting beat.

Alfredo Morelos was replaced with Rangers on their way out of the Europa League and Steven Gerrard appeared to snub him as he made his way to the bench.

The Ibrox boss had decided to take him off with 13 minutes to go and he made his way straight to his seat in the stand and looked frustrated.

He would have been feeling like that after a disappointing performance - as the whole Rangers team did.

But it was the sight of him heading straight past Gerrard on the touchline, only for the Gers gaffer to then give captain James Tavernier a high-five as he came off at the same time, that would have worried those watching.

The Rangers manager did appear to be speaking to someone else when Morelos started making his way off but he reserved a handshake for his other four subs.

Gerrard came out after the game and admitted the Colombian has had his head turned by Lille's transfer interest but insists he is professional enough to remain focused.

He told BT Sport: "I can't control what goes on outside. Everyone knows he's had his head turned, for sure. There's no denying that. My focus is on the players who want to be here, my focus is on St Mirren.

"If a bid comes that the board like and are interested in, and the player tells me face-to-face that he wants to go then we'll see what happens.

"Alfredo is professional enough to try and block the noise out.

"He hasn't had the best of games tonight but we haven't had as a team either. There's certainly no fingers pointed at anyone, we gave it our best shot and unfortunately we feel short.

"We all have to improve, there's certainly no finger pointing tonight at anyone's performance but Alfredo needs to remain focused."
