After a bright start to the season, Glasgow Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos has struggled since the international break.
The Colombia international has made five appearances across all competitions since then, but has failed to find the back of the net or get an assist, and his latest abysmal display against Dundee United in the Premiership was arguably one of his worst since he first arrived at the 54-time Scottish champions.
If that wasn’t bad enough, he can consider himself fortunate he wasn’t sent off after he elbowed Mark Connolly in the face.
As per SofaScore, Morelos lost possession 12 times, despite the fact he took just 43 touches of the ball. It’s no wonder he was rated as one of the worst players on the pitch as he was a total calamity, only winning two out of his eight duels overall and failed to register a single shot on target, which is rather pathetic for a player of his standards.
In fact, it’s been quite a dramatic fall from grace for a player who was once considered to be the best striker in Scotland, as he hasn’t scored since the 3-3 draw away at Benfica in the Europa League.
It’s not like he isn’t getting the chances, either, as he managed to get into good positions but squandered three shots off target.
Glasgow Live gave Morelos a 5/10 rating and claimed ‘a daft early booking put him under pressure and his day got worst with a series of miscues,’
Whilst The 4th Official were equally scathing in their assessment as they went one below, insisting he ‘was quite possibly the worst player on the pitch for the Gers today as he failed to get into the pace of the game’.
It’s no surprise the 24-year-old was pulled off at the 73rd minute, although it could be argued that he was fortunate to still be on the pitch in the first place.
Gerrard will surely have to start looking at other options – with key clashes against Celtic and Hibernian on the horizon, the Bears will be well aware they simply cannot afford to slip-up.
AND in other news, Glasgow Rangers must sign THIS free-agent…
