After Gerrard managed Rangers to their first Scottish League title in ten years, the champions hoped to take their brilliant form in Europe.
That hasn’t been the case though as the Teddy Bears have failed to record a single win in their 2021\2022 Europa League campaign and sit at the bottom in group A.
Ahead of their game against third-placed Brondby, Steven Gerrard has seemingly had enough of the goal drought and wants goals from his team, particularly from Colombian striker, Alfredo Morelos.
The Rangers No.20 is their best striker now, and holds the record for most Rangers’ goals in European competitions. But the 25-year old hasn’t found the back of the net much this season, netting just five in fifteen games unlike the previous seasons.
Steven Gerrard needs a European win, and the former Liverpool man is set on having Morelos play a big part in it through a goal(s). Gerrard expects more from Morelos than what the Colombian has delivered this year.
“…I would expect the guy who has played the majority of the minutes as number nine to have more than five in 15,” the Rangers’ coach stated. Morelos, who has scored 99 goals for Rangers has to be in the right places to get his 100th, and redeem Rangers in Europe. “…keep getting in the right places,” Gerrard advised.
Today’s match gives Morelos a chance to get his team out of muddy waters, and dispel his coach’s worries. Hopefully, the Colombian striker will find his form and emulate what he has done in recent years by contributing to his club’s needed three points.
