Things just aren’t going Alfredo Morelos’ way at the moment at Glasgow Rangers.
There was a time when the Colombia international was undoubtedly Steven Gerrard’s star striker – 82 goals in 151 matches tends to do that. However, it has been a turbulent few months for the 24-year-old at Ibrox. It looked like he would be on the way out of the club for much of the summer transfer window, with him even agreeing personal terms with Lille. In the end he stayed put, although he did not escape the wrath of Gerrard, who kept him out of the starting line-up for three successive games.
Morelos started the Gers’ latest match in the Europa League against Standard Liege last night. His side may have won 2-0 but the forward was a shadow of his best, winning just two from 11 duels as he continually struggled with his first touch, losing possession 14 times.
Should Morelos be dropped vs Livingston?
These supporters were far from happy with his display and they took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts – one even said he had “a touch like a baby elephant”.
Let’s see what they had to say about Morelos
Put Morelos on the bench for a period of time.

Morelos needs to stop thinking he’s a playmaking number 10 and start getting in the box again. Sometimes looks as if he’s never seen a ball before.

Superb if any goal is going to make us look silly then let it be that goal. Roofe was superb when he came on. He actually makes Kent a better player because he is everything Morelos is not. Morelos needs a long spell on the bench. His form is kevin kyle standards.

See what I’ve said from day dot about Morelos true. He’s nothing. Couldn’t stick a sticker in an album. Off it. There’s a baller Roofe. Beats three and as a proper switched on striker not opportunity driven finds a worldy. Fat man couldn’t and wouldn’t do that. Fact
