'Can't pass in the same postcode' - Rangers fans react after Morelos raves about teammate

By James Black

Rangers star Alfredo Morelos claims Mexican midfielder Carlos Pena is the best player he has ever played with – and fans on Twitter are baffled by it.

The 21-year-old Colombian named Pena in an interview with  BRITmania Radio podcast, which was translated by Argentinean journalist – and diehard Rangers fan – Hernan Pacheco on Facebook.

‘El Bufalo’s’ verdict on the Mexican midfielder who was the most expensive of Rangers’ summer arrivals at a reported £2.5million has surprised the Light Blues faithful, given his stuttering start to the season.

 When asked who the best player he’s shared a team with, he replied: “So far, here, Carlos Pena.”
Fans took to Twitter to express their shock at Morelos’ choice – with one suggesting the Mexican midfielder should “hurry up & prove it.”
Here are some of their comments:

Pena has made a slow start to his Ibrox career but is starting to show signs of a quality player after his summer move from Chivas Guadalajara.
The Mexico international has scored twice for the Gers and has found himself starting games regularly over the last few weeks.
The 27-year-old is likely to start for the Gers on Friday night when they take on St. Johnstone in the Scottish Premiership.

In other Rangers news, a £7.5million midfielder is firmly in the running to be the club’s next signing.
