Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos has been snapped handing out food to some of the poorest communities in his home region of Colombia amid the global pandemic.
The Ibrox striker is famed for his charity work back in Colombia and alongside the Alfredo Morelos Foundation was seen handing out food parcels whilst wearing protective gear.
Morelos might’ve has a tough few months in Scotland but there can be no arguments over the size of this guy’s heart as he risks his own health to hand out food to those in need.

Like everywhere, Colombia is facing massive issues in the wake of the outbreak but the country also has plenty of other problems including poverty, crime and a tense political situation.
Morelos is doing his bit to ensure that local people in Cerete do not go without during these worrying times for everyone across the globe.
The move comes after Morelos personally donated £75k to help fight the virus in Colombia [Gorman] taking his individual donations to £300k to fighting poverty in his hometown.
This is something that Morelos does not have to do yet so much of the wee man’s life appears to revolve around.
The annual Morelos and friends XI aside match to raise non-perishable food items for local people has run for two seasons with the striker’s friends turning out in Rangers tops to boot.
Rangers fans love the fiery talisman and they’ve taken to Twitter to praise Alfie for his efforts back home in Colombia:
While footballers in the UK debate over whether or not to take a 20% wage cut, Alfredo Morelos is back home in Colombia making sure poor folk get fed.
