Rangers fans already adore Colombian talisman Alfredo Morelos – but a video released by the club showing his interactions with one young fan left even the most miserable bluenose wiping away a tear.

Morelos carried six-year-old mascot Lucas Rae-Shreenan onto the pitch before the 5-0 win over Hearts on Sunday and the Rangers TV cameras captured their interaction in the tunnel just before emerging to 50,000 fans.

After spotting Morelos making his way along the corridors that lead to the tunnel, the youngster started chanting Morelos’ name.

Fans had already praised Morelos after Lucas’ mum had taken to Twitter to thank everyone for making his day so enjoyable, and it’s clear to see why.
