Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos has donated £75k to help underprivileged families in Colombia overcome the global health pandemic.
The big-hearted Ibrox star has never forgotten his roots and regularly takes part in charitable initiatives in his own town of Cerete and across Colombia.
Now digging deep to help out some of those most at risk from the coronavirus outbreak, it means Morelos has donated £300k to charitable causes in the region within the last year.

Morelos even formed his own foundation back in his homeland to help fund the fight against poverty in Colombia.
The talismanic Rangers forward returns to Cerete every Christmas, playing a special charity match were he kits himself and his friends out in Rangers strips.
The humble striker was also filmed delivering food parcels to some of the neediest as he was berated in Scotland for being sent off in the Old Firm win at Parkhead.
This is the latest of a long line of gestures from Morelos who puts charity and his community at the very centre of his world.
Firebrand striker Morelos has also been in the news this week with reports linking the striker to Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid.
