Andy Dallas says Rangers star Alfredo Morelos is his idol

Georgi Dzhikiya of Spartak Moscow vies with Alfredo Morelos of Rangers during the UEFA Europa League Group G match between Rangers and Spartak Moscow at Ibrox Stadium on October 25, 2018...

Morelos has been in sensational form for Rangers this season.

Alfredo Morelos of Rangers arrives at the stadium prior to the Betfred Scottish League Cup Semi Final between Aberdeen and Rangers at Hampden Park on October 28, 2018 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Andy Dallas has told Rangers official youth Twitter account that Alfredo Morelos is the player in Steven Gerrard's first team that he looks up to, despite only being three years younger than the Colombian.

Dallas, 19, has been in explosive form for Graeme Murty's Under-20 side, scoring a hat-trick against Hamburger SV as well as plenty of other strikes against the likes of Spartak Moscow.

 

One of the most highly-rated players in Murty's side alongside the likes of Serge Atakayi, Stephen Kelly and Kyle Bradley, fans are keen to see Dallas given a first-team chance sooner rather than later.

Dallas was asked which player in the first team he looks up to, and chose 22-year-old Morelos despite the young striker only being a few years older than Dallas himself.

Morelos has been sensational for Rangers so far, scoring 14 goals and adding eight assists in 23 league and cup outings for Steven Gerrard's side - the latest coming in the 2-0 win over St. Mirren on Saturday in Paisley.

Now a Colombia international, Morelos is expected to start for Rangers on Thursday night as they travel to Russia in a bid to stay at the top of Europa League Group G with a result against Spartak Moscow.
