As Rangers defeated Cove Rangers at Ibrox, for much of the match the entertainment was happening off the pitch with a happy Alfredo Morelos.

Swanning into his footballing home for the last four seasons, the Colombian striker was throwing up 55s at the cameras and beaming bright smile around the ground.

Not only that, but the mischievous forward was captured flinging paper at captain James Tavernier and striker Kemar Roofe whilst on the bench. The two of them barely flinched.

All of this put Morelos right in the middle of the action even if he never kicked a ball in the 4-0 win over the League One side.


An infectious character who is adored by the club’s supporters, the thought of Morelos leaving is enough to break the heart of even the staunchest man in Govan.

But it’s something which far from only be the subject of newspaper links, Morelos has actually discussed openly.

Looking ahead to next season, Morelos has once again been talking up that Premier League dream which has the Gers poised for potential interest in the striker.

The striker has discussed his Premier League dream and potential “opportunities” for the forward next season following a successful season in Royal Blue [Scottish Sun].

But back amongst the goals – Morelos is the current Scottish Premiership Player of the Month – and clearly happy at Ibrox, perhaps the striker should be careful what he wishes for.

Rangers clearly provide surroundings which are positive for Morelos and there is an opportunity to build on the success of this season and play in the Champions League.

A higher level – but perhaps not bigger club – appears a certainty for the forward but at 24 there’s plenty of time for this yet and he shouldn’t take what he has in Glasgow for granted.

Rangers fans went wild for a recent tweet from the Colombian as he celebrated picking up this month’s Player of the Month gong.
