Alfredo Morelos of Ibrox side Glasgow Rangers has just been compared to one of the world's best and Celtic fans find it hilarious.

Celtic fans on Twitter are mocking Rangers boss Steven Gerrard over some recent comments about Alfredo Morelos.

Morelos has netted 16 goals in all competitions for Rangers this season, and Gerrard has just compared him to Uruguay star Luis Suarez - and suffice to say that Celtic supporters find the comparison hilarious.

Here is what the Gers boss told The Record: “Does he remind me of Suarez? He does actually, yeah. A lot.

“We can change him and we can certainly help in terms of his disciplinary record. He knows that. But I love this type of player."

 

It might be a bit early in the day for the Suarez parallels, but the Colombian marksman is having a brilliant season at Ibrox and even Celtic lads won't deny that.

Well, they might, but the former HJK Helsinki hitman is only two goals away from equalling his goalscoring record for the whole of last season - 18 in all competitions.

And the fact that he is already so close to beating it is testament to his improvement under Gerrard.

The Hoops' visit to Rangers on December 29 will be a massive test for the 22-year-old.

Morelos is yet to score in six Old Firm derbies since arriving in Scotland, and last season missed a number of sitters in different games.

He has a lot to prove in that regard but, on this form, few would be surprised if he does indeed end that drought.
