Rangers fans have flocked to a brilliant four-word tweet from Alfredo Morelos following his match-winning display against Aberdeen.

The Gers star has been off-colour in front of goal this season and prior to Sunday’s fixture at Pittodrie, had scored only eight times in 26 appearances in all competitions.

However, after bouncing back from an early miss, he starred against the Dons, scoring once in each half to secure the three points.

His opening goal in the 32nd minute came after good work from James Tavernier and Ryan Kent, but the 24-year-old still had a lot to do when he received the ball a few yards inside the area.

He took one touch to control on the turn, before firing a left-footed finish back through Ash Taylor’s legs and into the bottom right corner.

His second, which came just five minutes after the interval, was almost as good. Kent found the Colombian international to the left of the penalty spot with a deft flick and once again his first touch was perfect, setting him up to fire a right-footed finish beyond Joe Lewis with the help of a minor deflection.

It was clinical work from the striker and Steven Gerrard was full of praise for his efforts.

“Alfredo is back with a bang,” said the manager [Rangers.co.uk]. “I think we have seen signs of it in previous games, but he has looked happier, he has looked fresher and he has looked more fired-up in the last few weeks, so that is only a positive for everyone at Rangers.”

After the game, Morelos took to Twitter with a simple but brilliant message that was lapped up by supporters.

He posted an image of him making a ‘shush’ sign towards a camera alongside the caption “El Búfalo al ataque”, which translates to ‘the buffalo on the attack’.

Supporters flocked to the post to praise the Rangers talisman, who will play a key role between now and the end of the season.
