Alex McLeish: Alfredo Morelos picked up knock in Rangers win v Celtic
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 suggested that Rangers forward Alfredo Morelos picked up a couple of knocks in the 4-1 victory over Celtic on Sunday.
The Colombian found the back of the net once again and doubled his total Old Firm tally with a superb finish into the roof of the goal.
McLeish was at Ibrox for the clash and praised Morelos for his efforts despite clearly being given the rough treatment from the Celtic defence.
Speaking exclusively to Ibrox News, McLeish said, “I think he played his part.
“He did enough with his goal scored and some of the runs he was making. He definitely caused problems with his movements, and yeah his legs got a couple of knocks.
“He was an influential character in the victory.”
Nothing to see here.
Morelos played through the kicks and the bruises and he easily had the last laugh.
The picture of the Colombian international mimicking Scott Brown and telling him to stop crying is one of the best things we have seen this year.
Given that there was a 10-day break until the game against Livingston on Wednesday, El Bufalo should be fine and back in the firing line once again.
McLeish didn’t make too much of an issue about the so-called knocks, and that makes us believe he will be back doing what he does best next week.
