Rangers fans loved the performance of enigmatic striker Alfredo Morelos on Thursday night, as he grabbed his fifth goal of the season against FC Midtjylland.
Morelos started the scoring in an incredible 4-2 win over the Danes, giving Steven Gerrard’s men the upper hand in making the final round of Europa League qualifying.
The Colombian’s header was followed up by goals from Joe Aribo and Nikola Katic, before two quickfire Midtjylland strikes gave the Gers something to worry about.
Nerves were settled for the second leg though as Scott Arfield secured an impressive 4-2 win, leaving a monumental task for the Danes at Ibrox.
Despite speculation of a bid from West Brom, Morelos looked unfazed as he played a key role in the victory. The 23-year-old is adored by the Ibrox faithful and displays like last night’s only endear him further to the fans.
Not only did he score, but he is also played a part in two other goals, once again highlighting just how crucial he is for Gerrard’s team.
Here’s what the fans had to say about him after the match on Twitter…
A goal and two brilliant assists in addition to his link up play all night makes him my motm by a distance.
Took a bit of heavy handed treatment as well without getting involved in any nonsense.
Probably his most mature game for us yet.

Alfredo Morelos without question. A lesson in how to lead the line on your own, scoring goals, assisting others and rag-dolling ex celt dross!

Morelos for me tonight. He’s going to. Be massive again this season. His temperament seems to have improved he’s not reacting to players. Amazing shift from him tonight with 2 assists aswell, he’s getting better and better

Anyone not voting Morelos is wrong….the guy occupied 3 CB’s and ran them ragged, linked the play and was crucial in everything we did. 2 assist and a goal. @morelos2106 love you ???????
