Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has bluntly shut down a Sky Sports reporter after they tried to get the latest on Alfredo Morelos following the Gers’ 1-0 win over Aberdeen.
The Gers boss was curt when asked about the Colombian before bringing the interview to a close.
Morelos has been linked with an imminent Ibrox exit but Gerrard wasn’t giving anything away after watching Morelos impress in the Pittodrie triumph.
“He was brilliant today, wasn’t he?” Gerrard told Sky Sports after the match.
“Fantastic. Thanks. He was superb. Cheers.”
The Ibrox gaffer had praised his players before cutting the interview short when asked about Morelos, admitting that they had to roll their sleeves up and put their bodies on the line.
“In an ideal world we want to look great in our style all the time, but that’s not real. Over the course of 38 games there are going to be passages of play where the opposition put you under pressure and try to take you out of your comfort zone.
“You’ve got to stay tough, you’ve got to stay together, you’ve got to roll your sleeves up and put your body on the line.”
Ryan Kent’s strike was enough to seal the three points for the Light Blues and get the season off to a winning start, four months after the Gers’ last competitive game.
Rangers will now turn their focus to Thursday’s Europa League clash with Leverkusen as they look to overturn a 3-1 deficit from the first leg in March.
