Aberdeen striker Sam Cosgrove has claimed that he could have been “well clear” of Alfredo Morelos in the race to be Scottish Premiership top goalscorer – and Rangers fans on Twitter have slaughtered the Dons striker for it.

Cosgrove trails Morelos by a single goal going into the final game of the season and thinks he could have been well ahead – despite most of his goals coming in a particularly prolific spell earlier in the season.

“I could have been well clear by now, but I’m just trying to score as many as I can and I’m happy with my overall contribution,” Cosgrove said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.

Gers fans on Twitter were quick to point out the Cosgrove played more games and takes Aberdeen’s penalties while James Tavernier has the responsibility for spot kicks at Ibrox.

With Morelos on the brink of his 30th goal in all competitions this season, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the Colombian hit the ned this afternoon when the Gers face Kilmarnock at Rugby Park.
