Rangers comfortably defeated St Mirren 2-0 at Ibrox with the Gers supporters celebrating the form of Alfredo Morelos come full time.

The Colombian forward may have spurned a host of good opportunities in both halves as Rangers played out the victory over the Buddies but Morelos once again got himself on the scoresheet.

That’s now six goals and two assists in eight games since Giovanni van Bronckhorst came in and Alfredo Morelos could’ve had much more against a weakened St Mirren side.

Ravaged by a Covid-19 outbreak, Rangers were expected to take much more from Jim Goodwin’s side and made the chances to do so.


Scott Wright would give Rangers the lead 14 minutes into the game winning a header from a James Tavernier corner before Alfredo Morelos beat the captain to lash home a second from a rebound.

But these would prove the only rewards for Rangers on a day when the Ibrox club played with creativity and looked a potent threat throughout.

Three points the objective as Alfredo Morelos shines in Rangers stroll

This was a strong enough performance – as it should have been given the standard of opposition – and three points were the main objective of the day.

Throw in the clean sheet and it was a good day at the office for Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side, leaving the Dutchman with a record of eight wins and one draw in his opening nine matches.

Rangers will now go into the winter break in a good place, six points clear in the Scottish Premiership and ready to recharge ahead of the second half of the season.

Rangers fans are a demanding bunch and whilst they may have liked to see more goals Alfredo Morelos was the toast of Twitter come full-time:

Rangers will now break for just over three weeks with Alfredo Morelos next set to be unleashed against Aberdeen on the 18th of January.
