BBC pundit: I'd pick Rangers star over every forward in the Premiership

By Harvey Byrne

Former Hearts and Scotland international midfielder Michael Stewart has claimed he would pick Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos over every other forward in the Premiership currently.

The 21-year-old Colombian has only been in Scotland for three months after agreeing a £1million move back in June from Finnish giants HJK Helsinki.

He has immediately hit the ground running, bagging an impressive eight goals in 10 matches in all competitions which has sent him to the top of the Premiership scoring charts.

Morelos’ impressive form hasn’t gone unnoticed either and Stewart has told that he would currently pick the Rangers star over every striker in Scotland’s top-flight.

“He’s a goalscorer, out and out goalscorer, you can tell that,” started Stewart speaking about Morelos, as shown by the BBC Sport website.

“You look at his record at HJK Helsinki before he came over with 19 in 20 games, or something like that. You can tell he’s an out and out goalscorer.

“If I was picking one striker right now, it would be Morelos. He’s top goalscorer in the league. Look at that goal he scored at the weekend against Partick Thistle, right now Morelos for me.”

The Premiership does boast some impressive forwards and this time last season Celtic’s Moussa Dembele was making all the headlines following his move from English Championship club Fulham last summer.

However, Morelos, who scored a very impressive 46 goals in 62 appearances for HJK Helsinki could be about to take the limelight away from the young Frenchman.

But, both strikers will surely be key in Saturday’s Old Firm derby too and the match could be decided by which forward has their scoring boots on, on the day.
