We’re delighted to welcome former Rangers manager Alex McLeish as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Ibrox…
Alex McLeish has labelled Rangers forward Alfredo Morelos as “unplayable” after his role in the 5-2 victory against Royal Antwerp on Thursday.
The Colombian was everywhere and managed to find the back of the net as well as set up Ryan Kent after an excellent run in the second half.
McLeish has claimed that Morelos is finally starting to re-find his scoring touch after weeks of working hard without rewards at Ibrox.
Speaking exclusively to Ibrox News, McLeish said, “There was a spell where he wasn’t scoring, but he was doing all the work.
“It was really heartening for a manager to watch from the sidelines, it’s the very least you would expect from any player. He was unlucky not to score a few times, but he’s still quite young and he can learn to finish better.
“That performance was excellent; really, really good. He was unplayable, running at the defenders and going around them. I really was impressed, not just by Morelos, but the whole team.
“Morelos has come into some great form.”
Morelos didn’t only score and claim two assists, he was everywhere.
The Colombian got lucky with his goal against Dundee United last weekend, but he well-and-truly returned to form in the Europa League.
Steven Gerrard was left with a huge smile on his face when talking about El Bufalo after the game, claiming he loves to play in Europe.
Long may that form continue, there aren’t many better in this competition
