Alfredo Morelos gets it in the neck from all sides.

We’re not sure why, although we’ve got a very unsavoury idea.

When he blanked against Celtic, pundits couldn’t wait to queue up and point at him, for not addressing the one big thing on his Rangers CV.

Perhaps the pressure made him try too hard on the day. Perhaps he shouldn’t have taken the penalty. Perhaps.

The Europa game against Young Boys was the chance for him to make amends and he did just that, scoring the goal that keeps us in Europe after Christmas.

That’s huge for Rangers and we wouldn’t be there without Morelos. 14 goals in 14 games through qualifying and Group G is a stunning record.

He’s a striker who’s proved himself against better teams than Celtic this season.

Not scoring against Celtic won’t define him as a Rangers player. Although we’re backing him to break his duck in an important Old Firm game later this season. Celtic can’t keep getting so lucky.

Last night, against Young Boys, he didn’t just get the goal, he typified what it should be like to play for the Gers – his performance was full of passion and drive. He was the best player on a night where no one flopped. Maybe Ryan Kent. Morelos is a true Rangers legend.

Onwards then. If we can win every game before the winter break we go top and that has to be the next goal.
