Rangers star Alfredo Morelos has sent a clear message to his critics in a triumphant social media post following his team’s 4-1 win over Dundee United on Sunday.
Morelos had missed the Gers’ previous three Premiership matches after being retrospectively charged with violent conduct for an apparent stamp on Hibernian’s Ryan Porteous in January.
His return against the Terrors was a welcome one given his popularity with supporters and the fact that Steven Gerrard’s side had only managed to net three times in the league in his absence.
It looked unlikely to be the Colombia international’s day for much of the contest, with his miss from point-blank range late in the first half particularly glaring.
However, he stuck to his task and eventually got his reward, with United keeper Benjamin Siegrist’s attempted clearance bouncing off El Bufalo and into the net in the 64th minute.
The fact that it was Morelos’ first league goal at Ibrox since August showed just how lean this season has been for him in comparison to last, but with 12 overall, he’s now the club’s joint-second top scorer alongside Kemar Roofe and behind James Tavernier (17).
He took to social media to celebrate his goal on Monday evening, tweeting a picture of his shushing celebration alongside the buffalo, football, Colombia flag and shushing emojis.
The post is similar to his response after the Hibernian match last month and it’s another clear message to his critics.
Unsurprisingly, the post went down extremely well with Rangers fans.
Here’s a selection of reactions from Twitter:

Meanwhile, fans of a struggling EFL club are rejoicing after the appointment of a former Rangers player as their new manager.
