‘Different mindset’: Charlie Adam wowed by improvement in Rangers star

Glasgow Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos has been in superb form for Steven Gerrard’s side this season, his efforts helping bring the Scottish Premiership title to Ibrox.

With title number 55 wrapped up, a solid Europa League run is next on Rangers’ list, and the Light Blues have done well so far in the last 16.

The Gers fought back from a goal down in their last-16 first leg against Slavia Prague on Thursday to take a vital goal back to Ibrox for the return leg next week.

Rangers’ opponents began brightly and netted in the seventh minute through Nicolae Stanciu, who curled a great effort past Allan McGregor.

However, the Ibrox side drew level in the 36th minute as Ianis Hagi got to the byline and cut the ball back from the unmarked Filip Helander to get the away goal.

Rangers held on for a 1-1 draw, with Allan McGregor pulling off a simply stunning save to keep out – and hang on to – a point-blank Lukas Masopust header late on.

 

And Morelos, who has 15 goals and 12 assists from 36 appearances this season, put in a battling display, constantly unsettling his markers and winning the foul that led to Helander’s equaliser.

BBC Sport pundit and former Rangers midfielder Charlie Adam, commentating on the game, noted how Morelos is now a lot more composed than he used to be.

“Morelos is in a different mindset at the moment,” Adam said on BBC Sportsound (19:08).

“Like the penalty incident at Livingston, when things don’t go his way he’s not reacting anymore, he just gets on with his game. When he plays well, Rangers play well.”

TBR View:

Morelos has always looked a cut above since joining Rangers, but for the first few seasons, he found himself on the receiving end of quite a few red cards.

In 174 competitive appearances for the Gers, he was sent off seven times, three of those straight reds, but this season, he hasn’t been sent off once.
