‘Menace’ Alfredo Morelos is Rangers’ best player

Rangers are on the upturn thanks to Steven Gerrard’s work and there are some seriously good players in the side compared to previous year; however not one comes close to the individual brilliance of this man.

Former Liverpool man Gerrard has been extremely accomplished with his recruitment this year infusing experience and youth to help revive a struggling Rangers.

Indeed, though their performances have dipped at times, allowing Celtic to assert their dominance at the top of the table, things are looking considerably more positive than the relatively dismal past few years.

But which player has been most influential?

It could only be Alfredo Morelos.

Colombian forward Morelos is brilliant for a number of reasons.

There is an attitude about the player which, admittedly, often manifests itself in serious disciplinary violations. But that is what makes him so perfect to the Rangers faithful: he is their own rebel. The man they can rely on to rile opponents; to fight for his club through thick and thin and dedicate himself 100 percent; the villain no one else likes but the home fans adore.

Then there is his ability.

The Scottish Premiership may not stand up to the quality of the Premier League, but there is something to be said about the remarkable 28 goals in 40 appearances he has scored for Rangers in all competitions.

If this insatiable diet for goals was not impressive enough, you must consider he has managed this whilst contending with stop and start periods spent on the sideline through suspension. A menace in every sense of the word.

Everything positive Rangers do goes through Morelos and that is why he is our star player.
