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.
Here are some of the best comments from Rangers fans on Twitter:
Morelos doesn’t hit pens and has missed 10 games 😂😂

He takes Aberdeen’s pens? Imagine Morelos took ours!

So why didn't you then?

You scored fewer goals and that was with you taking penalties. Pipe down. https://t.co/604qwkgCvT

He's a terrible forward who had a good couple months form and takes penalties. https://t.co/0UiZMh5ubU

Morelos has more goals having played 5 less games than him and doesn’t hit penalties. Cosgrove won’t play for a team better than Aberdeen, Morelos will play in “the best league in the world”. Couldn’t lace the wee mans boots! https://t.co/3AJwatk0N7
