Rangers fans can’t wait for the new season and to see Alfredo Morelos in action under Steven Gerrard after the new Light Blues boss stated his desire to keep the Colombian at Ibrox this summer.
As reported by The Daily Mail, Gerrard sees Morelos as having a big role to play at the club next term, despite speculation that clubs from France, Turkey and China are all interested in his services.
Morelos scored 18 goals in his debut season after Pedro Caixinha signed him from HJK Helsinki last summer, but drew criticism towards the end of the campaign for a perceived bad attitude and a couple of bad misses in big matches against Celtic.
Fans believe he has what it takes to shine under Gerrard though, believing that the Liverpool legend can inspire the best of his form with his latest confidence boosting comments.
Still just 22 years of age, there’s no doubt that Morelos has plenty of potential and it’ll be interesting to see if he can become more clinical in front of goal next term.
Supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on Gerrard’s latest comments…
Gerrard saying he wants to keep Morelos is great. I still think there's a very good striker there. Just needs to work on his composure, which should get better with experience.

I think we've yet to see the best of Alfredo Morelos. Its a good decision by Steven Gerrard to keep him at Rangers.

Morelos frustrated me in the second part of last season, but I reckon we'll see a completely different player this time.
He didn't get a break last summer, & he also looks much happier under Gerrard.
I think he will thrive under the new regime but needs someone alongside him.

Gerrard backing Morelos to do well in the upcoming season! That's what I've been wanting to hear. He'll do great for us after a bit of rest.

El Buffalo played over a year without a break from football. It showed at the end of last season. A break, great pre season and I reckon we’ll see a class player next year. Fingers crossed for him.
