Wallace: This is what I noticed about Rangers ace Morelos the first time I saw him

By Derek Smithson

Lee Wallace has explained that the goalscoring instincts of Rangers ace Alfredo Morelos was the first thing he noticed about the striker.

The 21-year-old completed his move to Ibrox in the summer and has hit the ground running in Scottish football.

He has become the first-choice centre-forward this season and scored seven goals in his first eight appearances across all competitions for the Gers.

Morelos has replicated the goalscoring form he showed at his previous club HJK Helsinki, where he scored 20 times in 25 games last season for the Finnish outfit.

Rangers captain Wallace has revealed that he was immediately alerted to the youngster’s ability in front of goal after watching him in training.

“The first thing I noticed about Alfredo was in a shoot practice and it was his instinct to score,” Wallace said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.

Rangers travel to Partick Thistle on Friday night for a league encounter and will be looking to continue the momentum gained from two consecutive victories.

Morelos has played a vital role in those wins and struck four goals in the last two matches.

The Colombian is fitting in perfectly to Caixinha’s starting XI and has the power and pace to trouble defenders.

He will be keen to continue his goalscoring run against Partick on Friday, who they face again just four days later for a League Cup quarter-final.
