Punditry team Neil McCann and Kenny Miller were left very impressed with the performance of Rangers star Alfredo Morelos on Sunday, speaking to BBC Scotland (10/11 live match page, 16:12 and 16:40).

The 23-year-old scored his 22nd goal of the season against Livingston in Scottish Premiership, as part of a 2-0 victory.

It's a win that ensures Rangers keep pace with Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership. The two sides are level on points with only a single goal keeping the Hoops ahead on goal difference.

After his exploits against Porto on Thursday, Morelos was again in the mood to impress, demonstrating his controlled aggression by being a real thorn in the side of the Livi defence.

His superb curled effort was arguably the finest piece of play throughout the 90 minutes.

 

Former Gers striker Miller was certainly dazzled.

As quoted by BBC Scotland, he said of the player's goal: "What a wonderful goal from Alfredo Morelos.

"Everything about it, the finish, the run and the physicality. The placement he gets on it from the tight angle as well.

"It's an important goal for Rangers, the second goal was always going to be huge."

Former Ibrox winger McCann meanwhile was similarly impressed, noting the Colombian's all-round performance after he was substituted off.

He said: "Morelos is enjoying himself, he's got a bit about him. He's in a really confident mood. He's quelled his fire and he's showing everything good about his game now."

There seems to be no stopping Morelos right now. His performances and direct goal contribution are an improvement on last season. With over half of the 2019/20 campaign to go, there's no telling how many goals he might end up with come May.

Crucial to Rangers is keeping him beyond the January transfer window. Selling him could prove to be a crucial blow in their search of silverware.

If they can keep him happy at Ibrox and in form, they're in with a real shout of a special season.
