Has Alfredo Morelos forced Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha to rethink strongest lineup already?

Alfredo Morelos shone in Glasgow Rangers' win at Ibrox, so perhaps Pedro Caixinha should rethink his strongest lineup.

While Rangers supporters will be wary of getting carried away in the wake of the Gers' 6-0 victory over Dunfermline in the Scottish League Cup, one performance should perhaps leave Pedro Caixinha rethinking whether the side he selected for the Scottish Premiership victory over Motherwell was actually his best side.

The Light Blues began their league campaign with a narrow win over Well. And while the three points was undoubtedly the most important thing, the performance from Eduardo Herrera seemed to draw some criticism as he appeared to struggle to get into the game, often looking isolated at Fir Park.

Herrera was not involved in the League Cup clash at Ibrox in midweek, and that presented Alfredo Morelos with the chance to make his own competitive debut for the club having also arrived during the summer.

And the youngster certainly staked a claim to keep his place in the team as he bagged a brace in the emphatic victory, with his first goal in particular showing some extremely positive signs.

He made a clever run around Kenny Miller to put himself in a position to be put through clear on goal, and he took full advantage of the opportunity, smashing the ball into the bottom corner.

And while his second goal was not quite as notable, it would have still been encouraging as he put himself in a position to tuck the ball home after James Tavernier's shot was saved.

As mentioned, the fact that the opposition came from the league below may tempt Caixinha to not get carried away with how the Colombian played, but the quality of the first goal in particular coupled with Herrera's debut should perhaps tempt the Rangers boss to consider whether Morelos has earned the right to keep his place in the team for the clash with Hibernian at the weekend.
