Rangers fans have been left scratching their heads as the club’s failure to recognise an award handed to Alfredo Morelos sees the striker taking to Instagram himself.

The Gers’ end of season Player of the Year awards dinner was held after the 3-1 win over Hibs this weekend and the club’s social accounts took the time to salute this year’s winners.

From Player of the Year James Tavernier to Women’s Player of the Year Brogan Hay, all of the season’s success stories were heralded online and at the function.

Except for one.

Alfredo Morelos award blank is Rangers head-scratcher

Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos might be heading for the Ibrox exit door but, before the Colombian leaves, he was given a special award for his European contributions.

Netting a stunning 29 times in European competition for the club during his six-year stay, El Bufalo is now the all-time leading Rangers goal-scorer on the continent, etching his name into the history books.

While it’s a nice touch from the club to recognise Morelos’s contribution on this stage with such an award, Rangers fans have been left wondering why it wasn’t promoted on social media.

Currently out of the team after being lambasted by Michael Beale for a shocking performance from the bench against Aberdeen, the whole demise of Morelos at Ibrox certainly leaves a sour taste.

But it is interesting that, while the club gave Morelos the award, they have not officially recognised it on social media and the striker appears to have taken matters into his own hands.

Taking to Instagram, Morelos uploaded an image of himself with the award before re-sharing several of his friends congratulating him via the story section of the platform.

There’s a feeling that there is something of a social rift behind Morelos’s recent activity and fans are certainly wondering why Rangers didn’t congratulate the want-away striker on the award via social media.

In total, Morelos has made 268 appearances for Rangers, scoring 124 goals since joining from Finnish side HJK Helsinki for a reported £1m in 2017.
