With Alfredo Morelos scoring twice in Glasgow Rangers’ 2-2 draw with Feyenoord in the Europa League group stages, he set a new record. 

The Colombian striker has netted 13 goals in 13 European ties this season, setting a new record for goals for a Scottish club in a European campaign.

With each important goal he scores, especially in Europe, Morelos’ price goes up and he is fast becoming priceless, especially to Steven Gerrard’s Rangers.

The Celtic fans are annoyed that a Rangers star has overtaken their legendary Henrik Larsson, who scored 12 goals in 12 games in season 2002-03. He is still treated like a God in the east end of Glasgow.

In fact, in the south-west of Glasgow, Morelos gets another chance to enhance his scoring prowess, with the sixth round at home to Young Boys coming up. If they get into the last 32, he can score even more?

The Rangers fans have come to expect hero Morelos to always deliver the goods and score goals, and as it happens, he has scored 24 so far in 2019/20.

All he needs is Ryan Kent and Borna Barisic to keep supplying him with more exceedingly accurate crosses, and the Colombian internationalist has shown he can bury them.

His reputation is growing every week, and he is finally behaving himself on the park with no tantrums showing now.

Morelos has even laughed a few times when a referee has refused to give him a blatant foul.

His ambition has always been to play in the English Premier League, and it still is, but not until next season.

Rangers must add a re-sell clause in the sale, because he is good enough to play and score goals in any league.

His two world-class headed goals in Rotterdam were as good as you’ll see anywhere in football, and why Gerrard would be crazy to let him go before the season ends.

Rangers fans will hope that the cult figure can hit the back of the net as the Gers face arch rivals Celtic in the league cup final at Hampden on Sunday.
