Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos continued his explosive form for Steven Gerrard’s side this season with a stunning brace away at Feyenoord in a 2-2 draw – and Aston Villa fans are considering a move for the Colombian goal machine.
Morelos, 23, took his tally to 25 goals for the season, as he scored his 23rd and 24th of the 2019-20 campaign for Rangers. The former HJK Helsinki striker has also opened his account for Colombia, scoring in the previous international break.
A deflected strike from Jens Toornstra gave Feyenoord the lead just after the half-hour mark, after a poor Rangers display in the first half. But the Gers cam roaring back in the second half, and Morelos netted twice with two excellent headers.
Former Liverpool star Ryan Kent provided the first assist, before Morelos produced a stunning header for his second after a good cross by Borna Barisic. The Colombian completely turned the game on its head.
However, Rangers could not hold onto the lead. Morelos’ Colombia teammate Luis Sinisterra scored just a few moments after Morelos had pushed Rangers ahead. The match ended 2-2, which sees Rangers sit at the top of Group G.
Aston Villa are said to be interested in Morelos, with The Sun claiming both Crystal Palace and Dean Smith’s side want the striker. Villa fans reacted to his display by urging their club to sign him.
However, Gerrard told the Record on Thursday that he would not sell Morelos in January, even if a £50million offer was tabled.
Please please please sign Morelos 🤩#AVFC
