Rangers fans react on Twitter to Alfredo Morelos performance

Pedro Caixinha poses at the tunnel after he is unveiled as the new manager of Rangers at Ibrox Stadium on March 13, 2017 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Ibrox side Glasgow Rangers lost on Saturday, but there was one big positive in the form of Alfredo Morelos.

Alfredo Morelos enhanced his reputation as a potential Rangers star by scoring again on Saturday.

Fresh off the back of his brace in the League Cup demolition of Dunfermline, the 21-year-old was on target again as he opened the scoring in Rangers' 3-2 defeat by Hibernian.

A general view of Ibrox Stadium is seen ahead of the EURO 2016 Qualifier match between Scotland and Georgia at Ibrox Stadium on October 11, 2014 in Glasgow, Scotland.

The Colombia international now has three goals in 162 minutes of competitive football for the Gers and fans of the Ibrox club are, understandably, getting excited about him.

It was obvious that Morelos was a goalscorer, having netted 40 times in 52 games for Finnish outfit HFK Helsinki, but the young South American certainly looks like he can also do it in Scotland.

The youngster is one of nine players to join Pedro Caixinha's project at Rangers this summer and, at the moment, he looks among the best, along with Graham Dorrans.

It was not a great day for another new boy Ryan Jack, who received his first and probably not his last red card for the Gers during what was a fiery encounter in Glasgow yesterday.

The 25-year-old, who joined from Aberdeen, certainly has a nasty streak in him. Such tendencies can be a big positive, but they can also work against certain players and for Jack it is important to find a balance between retaining his passion whilst not losing his head.
