Former Glasgow Rangers defender Alan Hutton has suggested that Giovanni van Bronckhorst could play Alfredo Morelos up top with Antonio Colak.
The Lowdown: Out of favour
It has not been the best of starts this season for the Colombian, who has only featured five times and not played more than 30 minutes in any game yet (Transfermarkt).
He was dropped by Van Bronckhorst for concerns over his fitness and attitude last month, but the manager has been slowly introducing him back into the team over the last few matches.
The Latest: Two up top?
Speaking to Football Insider, Hutton has suggested that the Rangers boss could tweak his system by playing Morelos up top with Colak in a two-striker formation.
The former Scotland defender said: “There’s obviously that potential there. Giovanni’s never done that and I think he has spoken about how it’s not really his style of play so I don’t expect him to go down that route.
“A fully fit Alfredo Morelos makes your team better in my opinion. Don’t get me wrong, Colak has come in and hit the ground running so you can’t really argue with what he’s given.
“If he [Morelos] applies himself in the correct manner that he has before he’s obviously going to challenge him. I think that’s what the manager will want, two players vying for one position and pushing each other. So hopefully he can screw his head on and do that.“
The Verdict: Give it a go
After the 4-0 humiliation by bitter rivals Celtic over the weekend, it could be time for Van Bronckhorst to tweak his tactics in order to try and fit Morelos into the starting line-up.
The Colombia international finished as their joint-top scorer in all competitions last season, netting a total of 18 goals, and he would offer the Gers an extra threat in the final third alongside the in-form Colak.
Will Morelos stay at Rangers next season?
Nonetheless, sometimes for managers it is more about getting their best players on the pitch first of all before tweaking with formations and tactics; and as his goal figures from last term illustrate, Morelos is still a key player for the Light Blues despite his recent snubs.
