Rangers fans react as Morelos misses out on SPFL Goal of the Month

Back in early February, Rangers’ trip to Pittodrie had everything you could wish for.
Goals, controversy, tough tackling and late drama.
As usual, Alfredo Morelos was at the centre of everything.

He was unplayable in the first half, notching an excellent brace, before being sent off in the second, after an altercation with Scott McKenna.
As it was his third dismissal against Aberdeen this campaign, the latter incident received the most coverage.

Yet, his second goal on the night, was a thing of beauty.
Following intricate build up play, Ryan Kent found Morelos. Receiving the ball around 25 yards from goal, he shifted it onto his left foot and stroked it into the far bottom corner with precision.

It was almost Messi-esque. The kind of finish only a seriously accomplished forward can pull off.

Subsequently it was nominated for both Rangers’ own and the SPFL’s Goal of the Month awards.
Morelos’ effort wasn’t a net buster or an acrobatic volley. It did ooze class, though, and it looked to be in with a good chance of scooping both accolades.
However, when the results for the SPL competition came in today, he only managed third place.
The Colombian picked up just 10% of the vote. In second, came Dundee’s Scott Wright, for a curling free kick against Livingston.
In first place, though, was Hamilton forward, George Oakley.

His Marco Van Basten-esque effort against Aberdeen, picked up 44.3% of the vote.
It’s fair to say some Rangers fans weren’t happy with the outcome.
