Steven Gerrard has heaped praise on Rangers centre-forward Alfredo Morelos after his performance in the win over St Mirren on Saturday.
The in-form 22-year-old scored in stoppage time to help the Gers win 2-0 away in the Scottish Premiership, with Daniel Candeias also getting on the scoresheet.
Morelos has now scored in his last four consecutive league matches and has taken his season tally up to 14.
The Colombian striker can often divide opinion due to the fact he plays on the edge and has had some disciplinary problems, but ultimately his goals makes him indispensable to the team.
Gerrard was thrilled with his attacker after another positive display and hailed his work-rate.
“He (Morelos) was superb today. He deserved the second goal,” Gerrard said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.
“I thought he was brilliant, his hold up play. I reckon if you asked those St Mirren defenders would they like to play him again I’m sure they would say no.”
Morelos is arguably the most important player in the Gers team and they’d be pretty stuck without him, as he is by far their biggest threat in front of goal.
They do have Kyle Lafferty as a strong alternative option to spearhead the attack, but their first-choice striker is in the form of his life right now.
Morelos is going to be needed next Thursday by the Light Blues, as they travel to Spartak Moscow in the Europa League group stages.
