Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos was looking as sharp as ever in their bounce match win against Queen of the South over the weekend, according to Stephen Dobbie. 

The Gers followed up their Scottish Cup win over Stranraer on Friday night with a behind-closed-doors friendly against the Championship side, strolling to a 4-1 win.

Ryan Kent and Sheyi Ojo were both on the scoresheet, but it was Morelos who caught the eye with a brace to continue his fine run of form.

And Dobbie, who started his career at Ibrox and netted Queen of the South’s consolation, was hugely impressed with what he saw.

Speaking to the Daily Record, he said: “It was a good run out for us. The majority of their side have been away from it for three weeks but you wouldn’t have known.

“Morelos and Kent looked really sharp and the time off doesn’t look to affected them at all.

“Morelos is on an amazing run of form so it was good to see him up close and the work he does for the team. He got his goals and looks ready for whenever he can go back into their side.”

What does this tell us about Morelos?

In truth, not a lot we didn’t know already.

The Colombian is the most dangerous man in Scotland right now, and he continues to pummel away at any and everybody in his path with this relentless run of goalscoring form.

In competitive matches he has a goal evert 84 minutes so far this term, as per Transfermarkt, and were it official, this brace would have only improved that mind boggling figure.

In terms of what it means for the South American going forward though, the main take away will be that he clearly isn’t feeling any rust after the winter break.

That’s especially good when you consider the fact that he still has another couple of matches to go before he is allowed to return to action properly.

If anything, this friendly shows us that he should be able to hit the ground running when he is back.
