Ibrox View: Morelos could be rested after Gerrard comments on int'l break

Steven Gerrard gave a fitness update today in his Hamilton pre-match press conference and the good news is that Rangers haven’t suffered any injuries in the international break. 

However, there was one interesting snippet that could have a knock-on effect for the team he selects on Sunday.

He said that all the players were back apart from Alfredo Morelos.

The Rangers hitman has had a gruelling but very successful couple of weeks, playing two matches out in the States.

Morelos finally got his first international goal against Peru, earning his side a 1-0 win into the bargain.

He played 90 minutes in that game and then 45 minutes in the 1-0 win against Ecuador on Tuesday night.

With Morelos not back with the squad yet, we think Jermain Defoe will get the nod to lead the line on Sunday. He scored a hat-trick against Hamilton earlier in the season and will be desperate to get another go at their leaky defence.

Hamilton have conceded 23 goals already this season – five against Rangers. Only one other team has conceded more.

In other Rangers news, Ferguson is spot on about Alfredo Morelos, ‘ridiculous’ valuation not as crazy as it might look
