Steven Gerrard has settled into management life very well, as his Rangers side are yet to taste defeat under his leadership.
Sunday saw the Gers see off Kilmarnock at Rugby Park in the League Cup, securing a 3-1 victory and extending their unbeaten run across all competitions to nine games.
Alfredo Morelos was the man of the moment as he netted a stunning hat-trick to seal Rangers’ spot in the quarter-finals, which provided the latest chapter in what is proving to be a rather frantic saga for the Colombia ace.
The BBC stated last week that Rangers rejected a £3.75m bid for the 22-year-old and his performances will have certainly raised the player’s price-tag – although Gerrard will be desperate not to lose the talented South American who has already scored six goals this season.

Gerrard himself hailed Morelos as a hero after the result and fans on social media certainly feel the same, as we have gathered some of the best reactions to his performance here.
Hopefully get morelos tied down on an enhanced contract and scare anyone off him ,

Morelos’ body language at FT; full of smiles, straight to the fans and desperate to grab the match ball – what a difference in a matter of months. Keep this boy happy and he will keep banging them in!

How class is it watching Morelos bully that centre back for his 2nd. He's a wee bugger.

I’m gonna name my first born child Morelos ! Don’t even care if he’s 11

There are people out there who will still tell you Alfredo Morelos is no good because he missed sitters against Ayr and Celtic. If you don't rate him it's because you are either clueless or ulterior motives are guiding your opinion.

Delighted to be proved wrong about Morelos …go on El Buffalo. Unplayable on this form ?
