Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos has not had a night to remember for the Colombian national team as he failed to take his chance last night.
Steven Gerrard’s star striker has been in sensational form this season, scoring 14 goals from 19 appearances and has also cut out the discipline issues that caused him so dearly last season.
With Duvan Zapata injured, Colombia boss Carlos Quieroz gave Morelos a start in an international friendly with Algeria at Lille’s Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
However, Colombia were played off the park by the Desert Foxes, who romped home to a 3-0 win.
Morelos’ performance was certainly not his best. Rangers fans can take some heart from the fact he had little on offer from those around him.
The likes of Luis Muriel and Yairo Moreno, in particular, had poor games.
But fans at Ibrox had hoped that this might be Morelos’ chance to prove doubters wrong regarding his goalscoring status. The term ‘flat-track bully’ has certainly been used by some negaters to criticise the relevancy of Morelos’ goalscoring form.
Hopefully, Morelos can shake off his international disappointment and come back to Glasgow fired up for this weekend’s Rangers clash with Hearts at Tynecastle.
