Alfredo Morelos has claimed that he wants to score 50 goals for Rangers this season.
He has also suggested that he believes he is capable of scoring no matter where in the world he ends up playing.
The Colombian has already hit a very handsome 28 for the Gers in all competitions this term, but his personal ambitions are much, much higher than that tally.
El Bufalo has revealed that he is looking to almost double that total between now and the end of the season.
Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “Right now I feel that there are a lot of games left and hopefully, I can score 50 goals in the season and if I do what I need to do on the pitch with Rangers then everything will take care of itself.
“We have a saying in Colombia – ‘goals are love’ – and when I went to Finland I was able to score 30 plus goals and people wondered whether it was the strength of the league.
“Now I’ve come to Rangers and scored 30 plus goals and I feel that someone who scores goals like this scores goals anywhere.
“If I have the opportunity to play in another league I will score goals there as well. I’m a player who likes to be in the box and I like to finish but right now I am just focused on scoring as many goals for the rest of the season and this project with Rangers.”
Can Morelos do it?
Fifty goals would be a ludicrous feat, but honestly, who can bet against him?
To achieve his goal he would require 22 more strikes this term, and it’s not impossible that he could do so.
Rangers still have 15 games left in the Scottish Premiership, plus the likelihood of a decent run in the Scottish Cup, and the potential for progression in Europe.
Morelos is currently averaging one goal every 88 minutes for the Gers, as per Transfermarkt, or nearly one per game, so there’s not saying that he couldn’t hit 22 in around 25 over the back end of the campaign.
The only real question is whether or not Rangers will play enough games to facilitate that happening.
