Derek Ferguson has insisted he is “hurt” by Steven Gerrard claiming Rangers forward Alfredo Morelos finds another level in Europe.
The Colombian found the back of the net to set the Bears on their way against Royal Antwerp last week, after also scoring against Dundee United.
Ferguson was delighted with Morelos’ showing on Thursday but demanded that he start bringing that level in the Scottish Premiership too.
Speaking on the Blues Brothers Podcast on Monday, Ferguson wasn’t happy with Gerrard’s claims on his star forward in the past week.
“Do you know something? It can hurt me,” he said.
“I want to see Morelos produce that week in, week out as everybody does. Of course, don’t just leave it to the big games, but listen, he thrives on that.
“He was absolutely brilliant.”
Ferguson is exactly spot on with that.
Morelos becomes a different animal in the Europa League, and that is shown by the fact he is our highest scorer on the continental stage.
In the Scottish Premiership, it has been a different story.
The 24-year-old has only found the back of the net eight times, with Kemar Roofe and James Tavernier ahead of him, as well as picking up those two bans for violent conduct.
Morelos has to find the motivation to bring the two together, and perform as he would against the likes of Antwerp against Livingston on Wednesday evening.
We know he can do it.
