Celtics Ryan Christie gets a two-match ban for grabbing Alfredo Morelos by his testicles.

Glasgow Rangers beat Celtic 1-2 in the recent derby. But the main talking point has been Ryan Christie’s getting a hand full of Alfredo Morelos.

Ryan Christie was not even booked for this quite inappropriate act on Alfredo Morelos’ private parts.

The incident occurred in the recent Glasgow derby.

Glasgow derbies are often hard-fought affair and ugly affairs.

You would be forgiven for thinking there is a typo, in that Morelos was on the receiving end of some brutal treatment.

The Colombian is usually the one dishing out the rough stuff. If there is trouble he is almost always at the heart of it.

This time he was the recipient.

As Morelos nutmegged Christie and skipped to attack the goal, the Scotland internationals arm came out and he grabbed himself a hand full.

The Rangers man fell to the ground in pain holding his groin.

The referee Kevin Clancy blew for a free-kick but no further punishment was issued.

The Scottish FA has since gone back and reviewed the footage.

Christie has been handed a two-match ban for the incident.
