Rangers fans buckled at Alfredo Morelos gesture to Livingston star

Rangers star Alfredo Morelos might not have been back to his best on the pitch against Livingston, but he was certainly almost there as he made a gesture to a rival star on his way off it.

The Colombian striker, 25, was in inspired form on Thursday evening to send Rangers through to the Europa League knockouts with a stunning double to down Sparta Prague.

After a stop-start season for the striker, that brace had Gers fans hoping we are about to see El Bufalo return to the talismanic form of seasons past in the coming weeks.

But whilst Morelos was spirited at times against Livingston, the Colombian often cut a dejected figure and despite setting up Joe Aribo, had a wasteful day in front of goal.

The striker was replaced late on in proceedings but it was an interaction with Livingston star and countryman Cristian Montaño which caught fans’ eyes.

As a scowling Alfredo Morelos left the pitch to be replaced by Jermain Defoe – the lack of a goal clearly perturbing the forward – he was hurried along by Livingston winger Montaño.

Not happy with the Livi star’s line of commentary, Morelos snapped back and did a hand gesture signalling Montaño was small.

We’re not exactly sure what the gesture meant, but some fans have been using their imagination.

It’s caught the eye of Rangers fans after the game and supporters have been buckled on social media as Morelos appears to be returning to his manic best on the field:

Rangers ran out 3-1 winners in Livingston courtesy of goals from Scott Arfield, Joe Aribo and Fashion Sakala, with Bruce Anderson scoring for Livingston.

Whilst Alfredo Morelos might not have been involved as much as he would’ve liked at the top end of the pitch against Livingston spare a thought for a key first-teamer who missed out entirely.
