Celtic legend Sir Kenny Dalglish has told the Sunday Post that Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos should learn from Hoops captain Scott Brown.
The Colombian striker was dismissed for the fifth time this season during last Sunday’s Old Firm derby.
He is currently serving a four-match ban for a flashpoint in which he appeared to elbow Brown.
Dalglish highlights how the 33-year-old has matured since his days with Hibs, stating that Morelos could learn a thing or two from his counterpart.
The legendary figure at Celtic told the Sunday Post: “When you think back to Brown’s career at Hibs, and his first four or five years at Celtic, he would get wound-up by opponents.
“They knew with his ability he could cause them problems and they wanted him out of the way.
“Brown learned to adapt and to channel his focus in the right way. Morelos should learn from that. He should look at the way Brown turned things around for himself.”
Morelos has bagged 29 goals this season and is clearly integral to Rangers’ fortunes. The challenge for Gerrard is to curb his discipline.
Dalglish has some valid points but he is unlikely to be making friends with anyone at Rangers asking their star man to be more like Scott Brown!
The Celtic skipper is a master of his trade when it comes to winding opposition players up.
Morelos needs to channel his aggression into not taking the bait when players get under his skin.
His goal record is astonishing, but he is no good to Rangers when he is sat in the stands.
King Kenny is probably right to suggest he needs a role model but whether that man is Brown remains to be seen.
