Alfredo Morelos wasted no time in his first start of the new season by scoring a hat-trick against St. Joseph’s, and the Rangers fans are absolutely buzzing.
His treble was added to by Jermain Defoe (twice) and Joe Aribo to give Rangers a 6-0 win against the Gibraltans.
The Europa League first-round qualifier was a breeze for Steven Gerrard’s men as they came away with a 10-0 aggregate win.
Morelos was on top form at Ibrox and looks well on his way to replicating the 30 goals he got last term for the Gers. The only thing stopping the Colombian from getting to that tally again could be his departure from the club, which has been hinted at by several reports.
Gerrard has done little to quash these rumours by saying it would take “a really big offer” to tempt him to part with his star striker.
Here’s what the Rangers fans said on Twitter about their hat-trick hero.
