Rarely-seen Rangers player ready to 'contribute' to fill Morelos void
Celebrations turned into confusion on Sunday when Rangers doubled their lead against Motherwell. Alfredo Morelos found the back of the net to seal the three points at Fir Park for Steven Gerrard’s men.
The Colombian decided to celebrate in front of the home fans rather than the full-stand of Gers’ fans behind the goal. That decision saw him pick up his second yellow card, ultimately seeing him sent off.
That decision will mean he will miss the next Scottish Premiership game for the Light Blues, meaning that Jermain Defoe will most likely replace the South American.
One player that won’t be expected to fill the void is Greg Stewart, but the rarely-seen player has still admitted that he is ready to jump in.
“I will always be ready when called upon,” he said via FourFourTwo.
“It’s a big squad and there’s a lot of places up for grabs. The boys have been playing well over the last few weeks, been unlucky in a few decisions that didn’t go our way.
“But we have three big games coming up before the winter break and hopefully I can contribute.”
Gerrard has used Stewart sparingly this season. The 29-year-old has only started three games in the league this season. There has been seven substitute appearances on top of that, so the chance that he could step in could be seen as hopeful.
Stewart did score twice off the bench recently against Hearts though, so he could provide a decent goal threat from the start this time around.
