Giovanni van Bronckhorst is going to have a challenge on his hands to get Alfredo Morelos firing again.
The Rangers striker has been poor this season. His goalscoring tally has dipped significantly and his all-around performances haven’t been great.
This isn’t just Morelos in fairness, some of his teammates should shoulder some blame for the Ibrox side’s poor form. However, Morelos has looked a shadow of his former self during this campaign.
Morelos has only scored seven goals in all competitions this season so far. For a man with his qualities, it is a meagre return.
Will the announcement of Giovanni van Bronckhorst as the club’s new manager act as a catalyst for the Colombian to fulfill his potential?
The next couple of weeks will be crucial; GvB might want to make sweeping changes, and who can blame him after the Hibs debacle.
A fit and hungry Alfredo Morelos is a player Rangers urgently need. With the front three this season constantly chopping and changing due to injuries and poor form, there hasn’t been a settled attacking trio, and it’s shown.
One of Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s biggest challenges is arguably to try and rejuvenate Morelos and spark him into some goalscoring form.
If the Dutchman can get the best out of Alfredo Morelos, then it would take a brave man to bet against Rangers defending their league title.
