Morelos, Halliday and Jack in the mix for Rangers Goal of the Month

December was a busy month for Rangers, with nine fixtures in all competitions.
There were plenty of ups and downs too.
Winning away at Tynecastle to go top, before slipping up against Aberdeen and Dundee. A Europa League exit at the hands of Rapid Vienna followed, as the struggle for goals continued.

A last gasp win at St Johnstone was then cancelled out by a draw with Hibs. The best was yet to come though, with a landmark Old Firm victory to carry into the New Year.
In all, Rangers scored just eight goals. Yet, there are four excellent options for Goal of the Month, with three players in the running.
Alfredo Morelos has two nominations. His winner against Hearts is option A.
With half-time beckoning, the Colombian got free of his marker to divert a James Tavernier set-piece beyond the ‘keeper and into the far corner. It was an accomplished finish which silenced the home fans and secured three points.

His second nominated effort (C), against St Johnstone, was a similar kind of finish. The assist once again coming from Tavernier, but this time from open play. El Buffalo went near post this time, slamming a volley past Zander Clark and causing chaos in the away end.
Andy Halliday is the proud owner of option B. His stunning free kick from 18-yards, rifled straight into the top left corner and got the Gers back into an attritional contest in Dundee.
Finally, there’s Ryan Jack (D). This one isn’t as good on the eye,
but it was certainly important. The midfielder turned a Ryan Kent cut back into the Celtic goal via Scott Brown, to ultimately hand Rangers a long overdue Old Firm victory.

Some great options to choose from there.
Bears can have their say here, before midnight on Sunday.
