'Doing brilliant' - Caixinha gives verdict on Rangers 21-year-old summer signing

By Harvey Byrne

Manager Pedro Caixinha has claimed that young forward Alfredo Morelos is “doing brilliant” following his move from HJK in the summer.

The 21-year-old was a slight unknown following his £1million move to Glasgow with his career beforehand being spent in home country Colombia and Finland with HJK.

However, his goal record in Finland which saw him bag 46 goals in 62 matches in total alongside coach Jonatan Johansson’s recommendation saw the Ibrox giants take a risk in bringing him in for a seven-figure fee.

He has since played five times in total for Rangers, bagging three goals and in his Thursday press conference Caixinha hailed the youngster for his fighting attitude.

The manager’s quotes were covered by the official Rangers Twitter account on Thursday afternoon.

Morelos scored the opening goal in Rangers’ clash against Hibernian last Saturday after just three minutes.

However, a red card to Ryan Jack after just 36 minutes meant that the Gers had to see out the clash with 10 men, resulting in a 3-2 defeat.

Morelos will be hoping to get on the score sheet once more this weekend against Hearts and he will be looking to be on the winning side this time around also.
