Former Rangers striker John MacDonald believes Alfredo Morelos will end his goal-drought after not scoring in eight games for the Light Blues.

Morelos made a phenomenal start to life at Ibrox with eight goals in his first nine games in Scotland after his £1million move from Finnish side HJK Helsinki.

Despite not hitting the net, the 21-year-old’s hard work continues to win him plaudits from fans and pundits alike and MacDonald thinks it won’t be too long before Morelos gets back in among the goals once more.

However the ex-Ger does claim that the Colombian ace is beginning to look a bit annoyed by his lack of goals.

“He is not getting the goals just now but he is still working hard,” MacDonald said, as quoted by the Evening Times.

“You can see he is getting a bit frustrated at times and getting a bit upset when he is not scoring but he is still doing his bit for the team.

“I am sure the goals will come back for him.

“His next goal will be the one that gets him going again and hopefully that comes sooner rather than later.”

Morelos has played a key role in recent wins over Hearts and Partick Thistle in the Scottish Premiership and fans are still very much behind the combative Colombian.

The striker’s last goal came against Partick on 15 September as the two sides played out a draw at Firhill.

Morelos is almost certain to be involved for the Gers when they return to action after the international break this weekend.

The Light Blues host Hamilton at Ibrox as they look to record a third consecutive win for the first time since December 2016.

MacDonald spent eight years at Ibrox as a player between 1978 and 1986 making 230 appearances for Rangers, scoring 77 goals, and won the 1981 Scottish Cup and the Scottish League Cup in 1982 and 1984.
