Steven Gerrard has singled out Rangers forward Alfredo Morelos for praise after his goal in the 1-1 draw against Celtic on Sunday afternoon.

El Bufalo finally scored his first Old Firm goal and celebrated in typical fashion as it was his 55th strike for the club weeks after the 55th title was secured.

Gerrard believes that Morelos will be massively relieved to finally find the back of the net, with this being a huge talking point in the past few years.


Speaking to Sky Sports via the BBC after the battling draw at Parkhead, Gerrard singled out his talisman for immense praise on Sunday.

“He’s been magnificent for us and his contribution has been really big,” he said.

“He will be really relieved to get that monkey off his back.”


Morelos deserves every last piece of praise he is receiving.

After having those two suspensions over the New Year, it would have been easy for him to continue in his usual ways, but he has completely transformed his game.

The Colombian has always been a threat when poaching, and he was in the perfect spot to equalise at Parkhead, the only regret will have been no fans to celebrate in front of.

Morelos is more known for his red cards in the Old Firm, but that can finally be thrown out of the window as he silenced an entire fan base on Sunday afternoon.

Gerrard has unleashed a different animal this season, and no manager could surely have the same impact on Morelos as the Bears boss has; what a partnership.
