Rangers goalkeeper Allan McGregor has praised Alfredo Morelos for the transformation in his character this season – although the Gers keeper was well aware it was a “good one” given his own reputation.
Morelos was sent off five times last season but has shown a whole different side this season as he’s looked far more mature when opponents try to wind him up.
McGregor admits it has been good that he’s “calmed down” this season after scoring his 21st goal of the campaign.
“It’s good to see he’s calmed down a wee bit as well,” McGregor told Rangers TV after the game.
“It’s a good one coming from me right enough.”
The striker is one booking away from a one-match ban in the Europa League and was substituted late on with an eye on the Feyenoord game in a few weeks.
The change in El Buffalo’s temperament has helped silence his critics who insisted he is too hot-headed to be a top-level player, however, his form this season is up there with the very best.
Incredibly, the goal was the Colombian’s 11th in the Europa League this season and now leaves him only six goals away from Ally McCoist’s record as the club’s all-time greatest European goalscorer.
