Alfredo Morelos is everywhere at the moment. And I don’t just mean on the pitch. With a fiery tie against Aberdeen up next, it’s not set to stop either.

The wee man is the talk of Scottish football.

The energetic, combative, lethal striker can do no wrong to Rangers fans. To everyone else, they seem to have a weird chip on their shoulder when it comes to the Colombian.

His offside goal against Hearts sent many into meltdown.

But whilst they’ve been playing down his ability, calling him dirty or just plain assassinating the character of the boy, he’s been going about his business. And not quietly either.

He may as well be on the top of Hampden with a foghorn shouting Mon the Rangers.

But no matter what the haters say, on Wednesday night against Aberdeen the striker has the chance to potentially immortalise himself in Scottish football. And he might not be finished there.

Morelos matches consecutive goal scoring record

Against Hearts on Sunday Morelos matched a Scottish Premiership record. Since the SPFL rebranded, only Dundee’s David Clarkson had scored in seven consecutive matches. That was in 2014.

If Morelos can beat Aberdeen goalie Joe Lewis on Wednesday, he’ll be the record holder with eight.

With Dundee on Sunday, the striker could be set to go on quite the run. It could never be broken either.

He needs to find the net against the Dons on Wednesday first. Just like Rangers must.

Going top is huge for the club but we have to maintain it. If we’re going to mount a serious challenge this season, Aberdeen at Ibrox is a match we have to win.

Morelos may yet fire us to victory, and break a personal record in the process.
