Rangers legend Ally McCoist has claimed that Alfredo Morelos will come through his recent run of bad form and start firing again.
Morelos is currently experiencing a goal drought and looked miles off the pace in the Gers’ last game against Dundee United.
McCoist has claimed that all strikers, including himself, occasionally hit rough patches and believes that Morelos’ form will return.
McCoist is quoted by The Scottish Sun as saying, “I think Morelos is too good a goalscorer not to come back into that vein of form.
“He’s just going through a period that all strikers go through where he’s arriving just too late, he’s arriving too early, he’s miscuing things. It might astound you to hear that I’ve been there myself — it lasted two years at Sunderland!
“He’ll be suffering, but he’ll come through it. I have no doubt that his form will come back.”
Morelos hasn’t scored in the Scottish Premiership since October’s 2-2 draw with Hibernian and only has seven goals to his name in 21 competitive appearances this term.
His last goal came against Benfica on the November 5 as Morelos experiences his poorest form since he moved to Ibrox despite the team being stronger than ever.
Morelos’ poor showings in front of goal make the Gers’ achievements this season even more impressive as fans must be wondering how much better their team would be with an in-form striker.
Rangers fans will be wanting to see the Morelos of old in the near future but he will miss his side’s next two games after one poorer aspect of his game returned last weekend.
The Colombian has been banned for two games for violent conduct after he led with his elbow in an aerial duel with Dundee United player Mark Connolly on Sunday.
Hopefully, his spell on the sidelines will give Morelos just the wakeup call he needs.
