Steven Davis hails Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos for latest performance

Steven Davis feels that Rangers teammate Alfredo Morelos caused Livingston’s defence serious problems last night in the Scottish Premiership fixture.

The Gers edged closer to the league title with a 1-0 away victory over Livingston, meaning they need just four points to clinch the crown.

Steven Gerrard’s side are now on the cusp of winning the league and ending Celtic’s recent stranglehold on the title.

Rangers midfielder Davis mentioned Morelos post-match for the way he kept his nerve.

 

24-year-old striker Morelos was booked for a dive in the penalty box during the first half, although replays showed it was extremely harsh and manager Gerrard was event sent off for his half time outburst.

But the centre-forward ended up having the last laugh with an 87th minute winning goal for the visitors.

“He caused their centre-halves a lot of problems tonight and everyone knows it was a penalty in the first half so for that to go against him, and for him to keep his nerve and keep doing the right things, I am delighted for him to get the winner at the end,” Davis said, as quoted by the club’s official website.

TBR’s View:

Morelos has shown during his Ibrox career that he can lose his head and have moments of pure madness, which is why Davis has been quick to mention the way he kept cool yesterday.

He’s been the go-to man for his side in the past couple of weeks and a large key to the Rangers success is the way different players have hit top form at different times.

The Colombian attacker is tenacious with his work both on and off the ball, plus he’s found a recent golden touch.
