Former England striker Michael Owen thinks that Rangers talisman Alfredo Morelos is “everything that’s good” about Steven Gerrard’s side after watching the Colombian score his sixth goal in six Europa League group games.

El Buffalo netted the opener in the 1-1 draw with Young Boys on Thursday and the former Ballon d’Or winner couldn’t praise Morelos enough.

Owen believes “lots of clubs” will be looking at trying to sign the striker and is certain Gerrard is “delighted” to have him as part of his squad.

“This fella is just their talisman. He is everything that’s good about this team,” Owen said on the BT Sport Highlights Show (12 December, 10.30pm).


“He’s very strong, scores goals and I know lots of clubs will be looking at him. Steven Gerrard will be delighted that he’s in his team.”

The former Liverpool, Real Madrid and Man United star tends to split opinion as a pundit but few will disagree with his assessment of Morelos.

His influence on Rangers can’t be understated and he is absolutely crucial to the Light Blues’ hopes of silverware.

Even if there are “lots of clubs” looking to sign him, they’d have to smash the £25million Scottish transfer record by a considerable margin to convince Rangers to even think about selling.
