Rangers have sent a response after the UEFA Europa League account tweeted about in-form Ibrox star Alfredo Morelos.
Morelos attracted considerable attention last season with his remarkable goalscoring efforts, particularly in Europe, as he broke the record for the most goals scored in a UEFA club competition before Christmas.
For a number of reasons, including transfer speculation, disciplinary issues and an evolved role in the team, his contributions weren’t quite as spectacular over the first half of this season.
However, the Colombia international is bang in form right now and scored a late winner for the Gers at Livingston in the Premiership on Wednesday night.
El Bufalo was mobbed by his teammates following the goal and after the final whistle, with some fans even getting a little emotional at a moment the striker shared with his injured skipper, James Tavernier.
Bears aren’t the only ones impressed with Morelos’ recent performances, though.
The official UEFA Europa League account posted an appreciation tweet to their 7.9m followers on Thursday morning, drawing attention to his exceptional numbers.
“Alfredo Morelos has 3 goals and 5 assists in his last 4 games in all competitions,” read the tweet, while an applause emoji was also included.
The tweet gained plenty of attention, receiving over 5k likes by the time of writing, while it also prompted a response from the official club account.
Rangers replied with one of many well-used Morelos GIFs currently in circulation on social media and the raised hands emoji.

Morelos’ recent strikes against Royal Antwerp and Livingston have taken him out on his own as the Gers’ second-top goalscorer with 14, with James Tavernier still in top spot with 17 and Kemar Roofe third with 12.
Meanwhile, Rangers fans have praised a different first-team player for breaking an incredible club record on Wednesday night.
