Rangers star Alfredo Morelos proved his quality in the Europa League last night.
Glasgow Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos has twice seen an exit from the Gers blocked amid interest in successive transfer windows.
Clubs in China and France have reportedly expressed interest, with Rangers holding firm.
Morelos has been valued close to £10 million, and it is a 'fee' which brought widespread derision from fans of rivals Celtic.
From Celtic supporters' perspective, their harsh words were understandable.
Morelos has failed to score against Celtic in five matches, while picking up four yellow cards.
The Old Firm games are supposed to be a barometer of a top striker's talent, and so far the Colombian has been unable to cut it.
Last night he delivered on another big stage. The Europa League.
Morelos' match winning brace against Rapid Vienna in a 3-1 Ibrox victory was a real signature moment for the striker.
It came amid a backdrop of criticism from the weekend when he was accused of failing to shake hands with an opponent.
The Colombian will remain a figure of fun for Celtic fans until he scores against them, but last night he showed he can prove his worth in other ways.
Morelos' Europa League goals will stand out as a glittering contribution on his CV, and there could be a few more left to come in this year's competition.
He might just be a £10 million striker after all.
