A fit and firing Alfredo Morelos could be the difference between Rangers winning the Scottish Premiership title and not, according to Alan Hutton.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, the former Rangers and Scotland full-back believes the Colombian has put speculation about his future behind him and is returning to his best.

European clubs Lille and AC Milan both expressed an interest in the 24-year-old during the transfer window but a deal failed to materialise.

Football Insider revealed earlier this month that the forward now wants a bumper new contract at Rangers in reward for staying at the club.

After failing to score in his last nine games of the 2019/20 league campaign, Morelos has got off to a decent start this season with five goals in 13 games across all competitions.

“He’s getting back to where he has been,” Hutton told Football Insider.

“He’s started scoring goals again. Yes, he hasn’t scored against Celtic in 13, 14 games now, it does seem a long time for such a free-scoring player.

“Listen, his head’s back on it. We know his head got turned with all the speculation about him leaving.

“He was up to his old tricks (against Celtic) roughing up defenders, trying to annoy Scott Brown, taking his focus off the game.

“Yes, he plays on the line, we all know that he’s very much on the edge.

”He does need to be careful, as soon as he got booked Gerrard made the sub which I thought was very smart.

“He’s getting back to it, his head’s down, he seems to be working hard again and hopefully he can start bagging the goals.

“I think he can be the difference actually. If he gets back to the goalscoring form that we know he can get to, he can be the difference between Rangers winning the league and not.”
