Rangers: Jordan Campbell slams Alfredo Morelos’ performance v Hibs

Rangers: Jordan Campbell slams Alfredo Morelos’ performance v Hibs -Rangers News

The Athletic’s Rangers correspondent Jordan Campbell pulled no punches in his assessment of Alfredo Morelos’ performance against Hibernian on Sunday. 

The lowdown

Rangers went down 3-1 against the Edinburgh outfit in the Scottish League Cup semi-final at Hampden Park, with Scott Arfield’s goal failing to ignite a comeback after a Martin Boyle hat-trick.

It might have been different had Morelos levelled with a chance shortly after Boyle’s opener, but BBC Scotland’s Nick McPheat described his finish as tame.

Campbell is not alone in his sharp criticism of the striker’s display, with Football Scotland‘s Calum Woodger rating it a mere three out of 10 and dubbing it ‘abysmal’, writing that the 25-year-old ‘disappeared in a big game once again’.

Morelos has scored seven goals in 21 appearances this season, but has already fired blanks against the likes of Lyon, Celtic and Hearts.

The latest

Addressing supporters in The Athletic’s matchday discussion, Campbell wrote that Morelos had ‘maybe his worst-ever game for Rangers’.

He also appeared to question the Colombian’s attitude, adding that ‘his body language was not good either’.

The verdict

Considering that Morelos has now played 203 times for Rangers since he arrived at the club back in 2017, that’s quite some declaration from Campbell.

The Colombian averaged just shy of a goal every two matches across his Ibrox career, but this season he has slipped to one goal in three games on average.

Questions can reasonably be asked of his commitment given that, in September, he publicly stated that he hoped he would soon be given the opportunity to leave Glasgow. He also knows that his contract is up at the end of next season, potentially putting Rangers under pressure to cash in in the summer.

Morelos is a proven player, but many more performances like Sunday’s could make it easier for the Gers to move him on if a decent bid comes in for him.
