Alfredo Morelos was impressive against Celtic and Scott Wright heaped praise on his Rangers teammate after the match.

The Colombia international broke his goal duck against Celtic when he scored shortly before half-time at Parkhead.

He has now scored in each of his last five league games, taking his tally to the season to 16 goals and 12 assists, but Wright is most impressed by the striker’s mindset.


After the match, Wright told Sky Sports, via the BBC [14:28],  “The unbeaten run is something we don’t really speak about. We just go into every game the same and now it’s on to the next one.

“He’s got a great mentality. He just wants to score every game and we’re all delighted for him.”

Watch and learn

Wright has only appeared for Rangers as a substitute in his short Ibrox career so far.

To make the next step up to become a starter he must look to emulate the senior squad members on and off the pitch.

Morelos is a player who never gets down and is always looking for the next goalscoring opportunity.


Recently at Livingston the 24-year-old missed a guilt-edge chance to score but later in the match he notched the decisive winner.

Such a mentality is what creates champions and shows the likes of Wright what it takes to succeed.

Fortunately for Wright there is no shortage of leadership figures in the squad.

Allan McGregor, Steven Davis and James Tavernier are all great models to learn from, not to mention the experience of Steven Gerrard and Gary McAllister.

Wright has a great chance of doing well with us, therefore.

Barry Ferguson told The Go Radio Football Show (27/2, 1:04:42) that he is impressed with Wright’s arrogance and willingness to do well, so the early signs are positive.

Hopefully we see him start over the next few games – our cup tie against Cove Rangers at the beginning of April provides the perfect opportunity for him to do just that.
