Former Rangers striker Andy Gray has praised manager Steven Gerrard for transforming Alfredo Morelos over the past twelve months.
The Colombian international scored a brace in the 3-0 win over Hearts in the League Cup semi-final yesterday and after the game, Gray complimented the Gers boss for improving the player’s disciplinary record:
“Last year he was a waste of time. He might as well not have been a Rangers player. This year, whatever he has done, Steven Gerrard has got him right. He’s responded and he’s been excellent this year.”
Morelos has struggled to keep a lid on his temper ever since his arrival in Scotland but the number of cards he has received has dramatically fallen recently.
The forward has only picked up one yellow in the league this season, with five bookings in total. He has also bagged an impressive 20 goals in 23 appearances, and is currently the club’s top goalscorer ahead of Jermain Defoe.
In contrast, last campaign, the 23-year-old received 16 yellow cards and was sent off four times. Both the manager and supporters will be hoping that the Colombian carries on in the same vein for the rest of the season.
