Rangers manager Graeme Murty believes there is still more to come from striker Alfredo Morelos after he ended his recent goal drought by getting on the scoresheet in the 4-0 win over Dundee on Saturday.
Morelos scored one and set up another for Jamie Murphy as the Light Blues returned to second in the Scottish Premiership with the win over Neil McCann’s side to bring an end to a run of three games without a win for the Gers.
The 21-year-old’s goal was his first since hitting the net in the win over St. Johnstone at the end of February and Murty thinks there is still more “output” that the Gers can get out of him.
“He has also played a vital role in getting Jamie’s goal, because he goes and nicks the ball and some of his stuff was good, albeit he can do better,” Murty told RangersTV, as quoted by the Evening Times.
“I still believe there is more to come from him, I still believe there is a lot of development we can get into it, but he keeps on getting in the right places.
“If he keeps on getting in the right places consistently and trying to use his attributes a little bit more, I believe we can get more output from him.”
Morelos will now be hoping he can end his Old Firm scoring duck when the Glasgow giants go head-to-head at Hampden in the semi-final of the Scottish Cup on Sunday.
The Ibrox first teamer has failed to hit the net in three games against Brendan Rodgers’ side although he has had some gilt-edged chances to score his first derby goal for the Light Blues.
The former HJK Helsinki star recently signed an extension to his contract to keep him at Ibrox until the summer of 2021.
Football Insider verdict:
It is clear there is still much more to come from Morelos with the 21-year-old far from the finished article yet. If the Light Blues can get it out of him quickly then they could really have a star on their hands. Morelos is still young and learning his way in the game but as he matures and continues to gain experience then he could really be a top striker. There are still some issues with his decision-making and consistency but he’s still young so those things should come with time.
