McFadden thinks Morelos can make the difference at Pittodrie

Scotland coach James McFadden thinks Alfredo Morelos can be a “huge asset” to Rangers – if the Gers can keep the striker on the pitch.

McFadden admits the striker still needs to learn – but can make the difference for Rangers when he plays.
“The conundrum with Morelos is that when he’s on the pitch, he’s a huge asset,” McFadden said.
“He occupies defences, he works hard, he holds play up, he brings his teammates into play and he scores goals.

“He gets chances and for Rangers to have a chance of winning the game he needs to stay on the pitch. A lot has been said about discipline. He’s a young player and he does need to learn. I know what it’s like when it’s hard to keep discipline.

“If they can keep him on the pitch, then he’s a huge asset.”
Much has been made of Morelos’ disciplinary issues” but they’ve been totally blown out of proportion.

The Colombian is clearly a feisty character but is rarely involved in anything serious.
Most of the rows centring around him are petty issues which are quickly dealt with.
The perceived nastiness is a big part of Morelos’ game and gets opposition players riled up.
There are definitely some areas he needs to learn in but he’s already a huge asset to the Gers.

With Celtic six points ahead of the Gers in the league, anything less than a win at Pittodrie would be catastrophic for their title hopes.
Morelos will almost certainly start against the Dons and hopefully show how important he is to the Light Blues.
