BBC pundit slams Rangers attacker performance during win against Hibernian
BBC Sportsound pundit Tam McManus slammed Rangers forward Alfredo Morelos for his performance in the 2-1 win against Hibernian on Wednesday night.
McManus claimed that it looked like Morelos’ twin was playing, but was soon made to eat humble pie after the Colombian attacker netted what turned out to be the winner for the Glasgow giants.
Hibs went a goal up in the ninth minute through Lewis Stevenson but two goals before half-time from Josh Windass and Morelos earned the Light Blues their fourth win on the bounce under the caretaker charge of Graeme Murty.
The 21-year-old striker was on fire in the early stages of the season but went on a barren run of eight Scottish Premiership appearances without a goal between September and November.
However he was on target in the win against Ross County at the weekend and ensured he scored in back-to-back games by netting the winner at Easter Road on Wednesday.
McManus wasn’t impressed with Morelos’ performance though, and suggested that the player who was out on the pitch was in fact an impostor.

“What’s happened to Morelos is his twin playing tonight,” he said on his personal Twitter account on Wednesday night before the former HJK Helsinki attacker scored the winner.

Since being signed by Pedro Caixinha in the summer, Morelos has made 21 appearances across all competitions for Rangers, scoring 10 goals in the process.
He is currently joint top scorer in the Scottish Premiership with Celtic’s Scott Sinclair and Motherwell’s Lewis Moult.
