Rangers put in a impressive display and thrashed St. Johnstone 5-1 at the Ibrox yesterday as they continue to climb up the table. The result took the Glasgow giants to second place in the standings. After a difficult start to the season, Steven Gerrard’s men seem to have found their scoring touch, as they had put four past Dundee in their previous game.
One player who has been instrumental to Rangers’ improvement as an attacking force, is Colombian striker Alfredo Morelos. The 22-year-old was at his best against St. Johnstone as he was constant threat throughout the ninety minutes. Morelos scored a brilliant goal in the 34th minute after he beat St. Johnstone defender Joe Shaughnessy and riffled the ball into the back of the net with his left foot from a tight angle. That took the Colombian’s tally to seven goals for the season.
Apart from the goal, Morelos was also involved in a lot of Rangers attacks, beating players with ease as he looked unplayable at times. There was one moment in the second half when the 22-year-old flicked the ball past the defender with his first touch and ran past him like he wasn’t even there. The move was indicative of the dominance Morelos and his side enjoyed over the St. Johnstone defence all game.

If Morelos can continue producing the same form, there is no limit to what Steven Gerrard’s men can achieve this season.
