Rangers won for the first time in nine years on Sunday at Celtic Park
Celtic claimed that their players were the target of “sickening hymns” after Rangers claimed that Alfredo Morelos was the victim of racist abuse.
The Parkhead side also accused Gers fans of throwing rockets during the Old Firm collision on Sunday.
Rangers said Monday that they believe Colombia International Morelos was the target after being sent by referee Kevin Clancy in the final phase of the 2-1 victory of the Light Blues, after picking up the second of two yellow cards.

Police Scotland confirmed that it was investigating complaints of racist hymns against a Rangers player.
A Celtic spokesperson said, “We are aware of a number of incidents from Sunday’s game, including Celtic supporters who were the target of off-support missiles, something that unfortunately has happened many times before.
“We are also aware of a number of other unsavory incidents related to absence support, including nauseating chants addressed to our players and supporters.
“However, as we always do, Celtic will handle these and all other incidents in a responsible and professional manner and in a way that protects the greater good of the game.”
The outage of the game also saw Celtic striker Ryan Christie receive a complaint from the SFA on Monday for an alleged incident with Morelos after an hour of play.
