Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos
Boyd, who had two separate spells at Rangers and is now at Scottish Premiership rivals Kilmarnock, had earlier claimed that Morelos should be paired with fellow Rangers striker Kyle Lafferty in attack.
The 35-year-old former Ibrox striker has changed his mind over the matter, and he now believes that Rangers manager Gerrard should deploy the 22-year-old Colombia international - who has been on the books of the Gers since the summer of 2017 when he moved to the Gers from Finnish team HJK Helsinki for a transfer fee reported by Sky Sports to be worth £1.5 million.
Boyd wrote in The Scottish Sun about Morelos: “I wrote in this column a couple of weeks ago that I’d like to see him paired up top with Kyle Lafferty. I retract that.
“If the last two games have proved nothing else, they’ve shown that Morelos is far better on his own. He looks to do a lot of work away from goal, he likes to be isolated and do his own thing.”
Morelos is one of the best strikers in the Scottish Premiership, and the Colombian has been playing well for Rangers this season.
The 22-year-old has scored two goals and provided two assists in seven Scottish Premiership appearances for Rangers so far this season, according to Transfermarkt.co.uk.
The striker also scored twice for the Gers in their 3-1 victory over Rapid Vienna at Ibrox in the Europa League on Thursday.
