Rangers: Fans panic as Alfredo Morelos emerges as injury doubt for Ross County game

Rangers: Fans panic as Alfredo Morelos emerges as injury doubt for Ross County game - Rangers

A number of Rangers fans have been reacting to a concerning injury update from Steven Gerrard on striker Alfredo Morelos.

Speaking ahead of tonight’s Premiership clash at home to Ross County [via @RangersFC], the Light Blues manager cast doubt on the possibility of the 23-year-old featuring at Ibrox, revealing that the Colombian has a “small calf problem” and will need to be assessed before a decision is taken on whether he will play tonight.

Gerrard said: “Alfredo has not only been suspended, he’s had a small calf problem as well, so I need to check with the medical staff what the right decision to do with Alfredo is because we obviously don’t want to put him in any risk. It’s good to have him back available in the squad, we’ve got a lot of games coming up so I’ll make the right decision that’s not a risk to the player.” [via @RangersFC]

As noted by the Daily Record, Morelos is again available for selection after serving a three-game suspension for his red card against Celtic last month, but Gerrard is reluctant to take risks with the striker’s fitness. The manager is also contending with injuries to James Tavernier and Ryan Jack, both of whom are set to be sidelined for at least another two weeks (as per Daily Record).

The 23-year-old is Rangers’ leading scorer by far this season, with 28 goals from 35 games, and he bagged a brace in a 4-o win against tonight’s opponents when the teams last met in the Premiership three months ago (as per TransferMarkt). These ‘Gers fans took to Twitter to give their reactions to the injury update on Morelos ahead of the Ibrox clash, with some alarmed by the level of squad depth at the club:
