Rangers fans can hardly believe their own eyes after an article in The Evening Times was released heaping praise on Alfredo Morelos.
Perhaps never before has a player been vilified quite so quickly and harshly by the Scottish media as Rangers’ Colombian front man Morelos.
The fiery youngster has a deserved reputation for losing his cool – he has picked up four red cards this season – but some of the coverage surrounding each and every incident he is involved with borders on ridiculous.
Be sure to check out the incredible story of the man who rose from a Tanzanian refugee camp to become one of Australia’s biggest football stars in the video below…
That said, Chris Jack of The Evening Times has released a stunning story on the Gers ace, tracking his rise from rags to riches.
Jack notes how Morelos was not always as highly rated as he is now, with his move to Finland from Colombia seen by many as a step in the wrong direction.
That step paved the way for his eventual move to Ibrox though, where he has smashed in 47 goals in 87 appearances for the Gers.
You can find some of the best Twitter comments down below, where fans are simply stunned that their superstar is finally getting some deserved credit…

Excellent article, people quick to jump on a young talented boy that has made our game better in Scotland. Let’s enjoy the talent while we can.

First article I’ve read on Morelos for a long time that doesn’t judge the person.

Columbian International picked by a top class manager to play in a squad with a fair number of superstars.
I struggle to understand the outrage here unless it’s simple bigotry or racism at play.
