Former Rangers captain Lee McCulloch thinks that Alfredo Morelos’ trophy haul at the club’s Player of the Year awards on Sunday shows just how highly-regarded the Colombian is by his team-mates.
Morelos lifted the Player of the Year, Player’s Player of the Year and the Sam English Bowl for being the club’s top goalscorer at the glitzy bash in Glasgow.
“I think it speaks volumes for how highly regarded he is in the dressing room when he picks up the award from his team-mates,” McCulloch told the Evening Times.
“Everyone goes on about his disciplinary record. As I have said, he is young, he will make mistakes but he will learn and get better.
“That award shows that the dressing room has got his back, that they are with him and obviously he is a fan favourite as well.”
Morelos has hit the net 29 times so far this season and is streets ahead of any of his team-mates in terms of consistently performing.
Despite currently serving a four-game ban, El Bufalo could still smash through the 30-goal barrier before the season is up and join a small group of Rangers strikers to have reached the milestone.
Hopefully, the adulation from fans and team-mates alike can help convince the Colombia international that his long-term future is in Glasgow.
