'Has to be', 'Streets ahead' - Rangers fans react after POTY announcement

Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos is one of four players to have been nominated for the PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year award after hitting 18 goals in his debut season for the Light Blues – and Gers fans are delighted to see the 21-year-old get some well earned recognition.

Morelos joins Aberdeen’s Scott McKenna, Celtic defender Kieran Tierney and St. Mirren winger Lewis Morgan on the four-man shortlist announced by the player’s union on their official Twitter account on Wednesday.

Gers fans think the 21-year-old first teamer deserves to pick up the gong after the way he has hit the ground running following his summer move from HJK Helsinki – with one fan saying the Colombian was “streets ahead” of his rivals.

Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

The Colombian recently signed a new deal with the Ibrox giants after a number of bids were made by Chinese Super League side Beijing Renhe to sign the 21-year-old.

Morelos joined the Light Blues last summer from HJK Helsinki for £1million and has been an absolute steal after hitting the net 18 times in all competitions.

The Colombian could even find himself part of his nation;s squad heading to Russia for this summer’s World Cup after his goalscoring exploits in Scotland gained attention in South America.
