What do the likes of Rangers legends Ally McCoist, Jorg Albertz, Ralph Brand and now Alfredo Morelos have in common?
They’ve all scored over ten European goals for Rangers.
The 22-year-old Colombian’s double against the Danes takes him to double figures on a list he joins with another 10 Rangers icons.
⚽️ .@morelos2106 enters Rangers history books as the 11th player to score 10 or more goals in European competition.

Steven Gerrard suggested last week’s performance against the Danish side proved Morelos’ commitment to Rangers [RangersTV].
It’s incredibly impressive numbers when you consider Morelos has only really been playing European football at Ibrox for two seasons.
Let’s strike the first season where we went crashing out to Progres from the register.
More impressively, he already has seven in European competition this season. And nine in total.
That’s a feat made even more impressive by the fact Morelos has only featured in eight games.
What a season it is shaping up to be for El Bufalo and the fact he’s playing with a smile on his face makes it all the more satisfying.
The Buff was a stand-out as his double and assist helped dump FC Midtjylland 3-1 on the night and 7-3 on aggregate.
And to think, Rangers fans spent half the transfer window thinking the talented striker would be leaving us.
Whilst it’s probably an inevitability that Morelos will one day move on, what a forward the Colombian is developing into.
Morelos is also currently on track to smash his 30-goal haul from last season.
And now he’s etched his name into Rangers’ European folklore too!
