Giovanni van Bronckhorst makes change to get the best out of Alfredo Morelos at Rangers
Giovanni van Bronckhorst has moved Alfredo Morelos further forward in an effort to get him firing for Rangers.
The Athletic report that Steven Gerrard gradually moved the 25-year-old further back to involve him more in the build-up play.
However, it appears as if the Dutchman has already moved the Colombian further forward in an effort to allow him to be more effective in front of goal and use his physical attributes to his advantage.
Good start for Morelos and Gio.
Van Bronckhorst managed his first game as Gers boss on Thursday night, and the team responded to that shocking 3-1 defeat to Hibernian with a big win.
Morelos scored twice and proved that he could be the man to score the goals for van Bronckhorst’s Rangers.
One of the goals was handed to him on a platter after a shocking error at the back, but the other was a good finish.
So, it seems as if GvB’s early change has already worked.
Certainly, it would make more sense to have the likes of Ianis Hagi and Ryan Kent buzzing around behind Morelos and carving at opportunities for him to score.
If the Gers leave him upfront, he can occupy defenders or run in behind and use his pace and strength to get on the end of passes.
It might seem like a simple change that van Bronckhorst has made, but it could prove to be the perfect move, and hopefully, we see the old Morelos return.
Remember, he has been described as “fantastic” by Kenny Miller in the past, and we would love to see him get back to those high levels [Daily Record].
