Rangers forward must take huge chance if he wants to impress next manager


Rangers forward Alfredo Morelos has been notoriously poor against Celtic this season, missing plenty of chances to score against the Gers’ biggest rivals.

But if he can shine at Celtic Park and stop the Hoops from clinching the league title on Sunday that would surely catch the eye of rumoured future Gers boss Steven Gerrard.

Morelos has overall had a very good season for the Ibrox side, scoring 18 goals and the 21-year-old deserves to be one of the four nominations for Scotland’s young player of the year award.

But at this moment in time, the Colombian’s season will be remembered for his misses against the Hoops, especially the miss from point blank range at Ibrox where he somehow conspired to hit the post with the goal at his mercy.

He has even lost his place in the side to Jason Cummings, but it seems likely that Graeme Murty will restore him to the starting line-up for the trip to Celtic Park.

Bizarrely enough, aside from his finishing Morelos has played well against the Hoops this season, with his strength and running causing the likes of Dedryck Boyata and Jozo Simunovic all kinds of problems.

One goal for Morelos in the biggest game in Scottish football could change everything for the player, it would cement him as the main striker at Ibrox both this season and going forward, as the new manager will no doubt be watching.
