HELP..! New light switch won't turn off light


Hello all. I am hoping someone can help me. I removed an old ceiling fan and wall switch that controlled light and fan speed (see picture). I installed a new light fixture that said connect the black wires to the black wire coming out of ceiling and the same with the whites. I now have a red wire that I have no clue what to do with. I connected all as I said and then tried to connect the new light switch and spent a good 2hrs trying to figure it out and no luck. Hopefully the pictures help. I am lost here. The way I had it connected it would keep the lights on but I could not turn it on. Any Help I will appreciate it. God bless
