Dundee United’s Ryan Edwards has been left with an anxious wait over whether he could face a suspension for a challenge on Rangers’ Alfredo Morelos at the weekend.

Micky Mellon’s men were put to the sword once more on Premiership duty, losing 4-0 for the second game in a row against a Rangers side who picked up four injuries in and around this contest.

Ryan Kent opened the scoring before James Tavernier, Kemar Roofe and Scott Arfield completed the scoring for Rangers.

A big talking point was Edwards’ high challenge on Colombian forward Morelos, which left the Gers star with a gash above the knee.

Referee Kevin Clancy didn’t take any action at the time but SFA compliance officer Clare Whyte could. She may review the challenge and deem that Edwards used excessive force in the Ibrox tackle.

It could leave Mellon’s big defender with a notice of complaint. The Tangerines return to action this weekend against St Mirren, looking to put Kilmarnock and Rangers defeats behind them.
