Celtic still must be wary of Rangers 21-year-old in crunch semi-final despite loss of form


Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos is in a bit of a from slump at the moment as the 21-year-old hasn’t scored for the Ibrox side in his last four matches for the Gers.

Despite his lack of form, he is still a player that Celtic should be very wary of if he features in the upcoming Scottish Cup semi-final tie.

The player’s confidence seems to have taken a knock after the Old Firm match at Ibrox last month, where the Colombian was guilty of missing a great chance which would have given the Gers a late equaliser and kept them in the title race.

If he had scored, he would have been the hero, but he missed and questions remain about how good a player he really is.

It shouldn’t be forgotten about though, that Morelos did give the Hoops back-line plenty of problems in the recent match at Ibrox.

His bustling style was very difficult for Dedryck Boyata and Jozo Simunovic to cope with, and it was no surprise that was Simunovic was sent-off it was for a foul on Morelos.

Overall, Morelos has had an excellent first season in Scotland, scoring 17 goals and proving to be a bargain signing at a cost of £900,000.

On his day he can be very difficult to play against and despite his recent form slump the Hoops will have to be vary of him come Scottish Cup semi-final day.
