'He's improving': Sky pundit tips Rangers 25-year-old to have big say against Celtic

Glasgow Rangers are in Old Firm derby action against Celtic in Sunday’s early Scottish Premiership kickoff at Ibrox.

For the first time in over 600 days, the Gers and the Hoops will lock horns in front of a capacity crowd.

Although Rangers have won five of the last six derbies, Celtic have picked up consecutive 6-0 league victories.

Steven Gerrard and Ange Postecoglou have also steered their respective sides into the Europa League group stages.

The stage is set for a huge game, but which players will shine in this historic and fiercely-contested fixture?

Sky Sports pundit James McFadden has made his selections, and one of those, unsurprisingly, is Alfredo Morelos.

The combative striker netted twice against Celtic last season as the Gers cruised to their 55th title.

The Old Firm derby was made for the likes of Morelos, who will hope to write more history on Sunday.

“He leads the line for Rangers very well,” McFadden wrote on Sky Sports.

“He has come back from international duty and is getting himself into good positions this season and has looked very sharp.

“Morelos has added more to his game too, he can come short, he can link up and he can still be that threat in behind.

“His movement and anticipation is really good too as we saw at Ross County.

“I also believe this season he looks sharper than before, I think he’s adding more to his game and he’s improving.

“He will be a key player for Rangers.”
