Former Ibrox loanee Joe Worrall has paid tribute to Steven Davis and Alfredo Morelos after his one-time Rangers team-mates sealed a superb Europa League victory over FC Porto on Thursday night, speaking to Jim White on talkSPORT (8 November, 12.30pm).

The Gers sealed arguably their most impressive European result since that stunning 3-0 battering of Lyon in 2007 when Porto, Champions League quarter-finalists last season, came to town.

The irrepressible Morelos fired home a second half volley to give Steven Gerrard’s side the lead, his 21st goal in all competitions this season, before turning provider just minutes later to set up Davis’ first Rangers goal in seven years as the Glasgow giants secured a deserved 2-0 win.

 

And Worrall, who spent the 2018/19 season at Ibrox before returning to Nottingham Forest over the summer, is thrilled to see Rangers go from strength to strength under the Liverpool legend.

“It’s fantastic. Morelos is absolutely on fire, it’s crazy what a player he is. And Steven Davis, he got a goal so I’m really happy for him,” said Worrall.

“Last year, being up there at Rangers, it was tough for me on a personal note being away from home and it opened my eyes.

“But the European nights are really special and they are doing fantastically this season.”

Worrall divided Rangers fans with his inconsistent performances at centre-half during his one-and-only campaign at Ibrox. But the royal blues’ look far more solid at the back these days with Connor Goldson and Filip Helander once again stepping up to the plate against dangerous opposition in Europe.
