Rangers star Alfredo Morelos has tweeted for the first time since testing positive for Covid-19 late last month.

Morelos’ positive test came whilst on international duty with Colombia, ahead of a pair of World Cup qualifiers against Peru and Argentina.

It was asserted at the time that he was in ‘good health’ but would have to observe a period of isolation [Fcf.com].

His absence didn’t prevent him from being selected for the Copa America, though, and manager Reinaldo Rueda recently confirmed that the forward had rejoined the group.

Morelos was an unused sub when his country kicked off their tournament with a 1-0 win over Ecuador at the Arena Pantanal in Brazil last night but he still looks to be in high spirits.

The 24-year-old tweeted for the first time since his positive test just before 5pm UK time on Monday, sharing a photo of him smiling in the dressing room alongside fellow forward Miguel Borja, who started the match.

Morelos’ caption read:  “Great, my countryman, we go for more of God’s hand” [translated].

Rangers fans will be delighted to see El Bufalo looking healthy and with matches being shown live on the BBC, plenty will be hoping to see him back in action over the coming weeks.

Colombia’s next fixture is against Venezuela at the Estadio Olimpico Pedro Ludovico in Goiânia on Thursday night, and the opposition are set to be very understrength.

That’s because eight Venezuela players tested positive for Covid-19 ahead of their 3-0 defeat to hosts Brazil yesterday and they will all still be isolating when the clash with Morelos and co. arrives.

In other news, Rangers are keen on an exciting young striker who wants to leave his current club, according to a report.
