Rangers Colts secured a stunning comeback win against Solihull Moors via a penalty shoot-out on Tuesday night after drawing 3-3 in regulation time.
Will Alfredo Morelos finish the season a Rangers player?
The young Gers probably weren’t expected to beat a senior team playing in the fifth tier of English football and, to give an example of the disparity, Solihull had Gael Bigirimana in their line-up who had been at Hibernian last season.
Another, somewhat surprising standout, was Eros Grezda. The Albanian international has been out in the cold for some time but scored two crucial goals to drag the youngsters back level.
Rangers fans took to Twitter to express their delight at securing a home tie against Wrexham and a visit from the infamous Bootlegger.
Tremendous lads, simply the best 🔴⚪🔵🍻 #RangersColts

The most encouraging thing about our colts getting to the quarter final of a big boys tournament is most of our best young talent is out on loan. The future is bright 🇬🇧

With a fixture against Wrexham coming up, some Gers fans felt it appropriate to pay homage to their most famous fan in response to the dramatic win.
