What Alfredo Morelos did after the full time whistle would have delighted Rangers fans

A rampant Rangers side put five past Kilmarnock as they march through to the quarterfinals of the Scottish Cup.

Alfredo Morelos returned to the first team and scored four goals making it one of his very best performance for the Gers.

The match was poised to be a tight affair as both sides failed to break the deadlock at the Rugby Park prompting the replay.

But it took only 7 minutes for Rangers to break the deadlock at Ibrox as Morelos tapped home a brilliant cross by Daniel Candeias.

And things took a drastic turn for the home side when Kilmarnock’s Daniel Bachmann was told to walk by the match referee Alan Muir.

Steve Clarke was forced to sacrifice an on-field player as Kilmarnock attempted to shut the doors for the opponents.

But Rangers launched wave after waves of attack and Morelos struck again in the towards the end of the first half, this time heading home a Candeias cross from almost inside the six-yard box.

The match went on to be completely one-sided in the second half as substitute Andy Halliday made it 3-0 in the 77th minute.

It was instantly followed by a thunderous strike from Morelos to make it four and in the 83rd minute, the Colombian made it five thanks to a huge defensive letdown by Kilmarnock.

After a stunning performance, the Colombian decided to wrap up the night in style after the final whistle.

The talismanic striker showed off his amazing ball control and juggling skills before signing off the pitch with the match ball.

And of course, Rangers fans couldn’t be any happier to witness the show after what has been a fantastic night for the Gers.
