Rangers caretaker-manager Graeme Murty has admitted to The Scottish Sun that Alfredo Morelos had looked anxious in training.

Morelos scored for Rangers in their Scottish Premiership game against Ross County at Ibrox on Saturday afternoon.

The 21-year-old striker found the net for the Gers just before the hour mark, as the Ibrox club won 2-1.

It was the former Colombia Under-20 international striker’s first goal for Rangers in 11 appearances, as the Glasgow giants made it three wins in a row in the Scottish Premiership.

Rangers caretaker-manager Murty has admitted that Morelos, who joined the Gers from HJK in the summer transfer window, had looked anxious in training.

The 43-year-old has also praised the striker, who started his professional club football career at Independiente Medellin.

Murty told The Scottish Sun about Morelos: “He had his ban and as a foreign player coming in you don’t want to spend any time out of the team because you don’t want to be missing out on any of your football.

“It is the reason you came over. But he deals with it really well in training, he is crisp and he is sharp.

“He was getting a wee bit anxious, you could see that in training but hopefully this will relax him and make him feel a little more confident in himself so he can keep on getting into those situations.”

Morelos is a very good striker and he is also very young, and Rangers fans should be optimistic that he will get better.

Rangers are doing well at the moment and are second in the Scottish Premiership table at the moment.
