Gerrard believes Morelos should take inspiration from Uruguayan ace, Luis Suarez
Aged just 23, Rangers’ Colombian talisman Alfredo Morelos has achieved a lot in his short professional football career. After signing his first pro deal with Independiente Medellin back in 2011, it was a bold move to Finnish football in 2016 that demonstrated Morelos’ desire to make an impact in the sport. After being named the Veikkausliiga’s best striker in 2016-17, Rangers came calling. A £1m fee was agreed with HJK Helsinki and the rest is history.
It's only been a few weeks since Rangers got the better of Celtic but, as the winter break finally comes to a close with a return to action in the Cup against Stranraer, that victory in the East End of Glasgow already seems a long time ago. Yet, there's a sense of familiarity with the position we're in - especially compared to this time last year.
As a rule I'm generally against banning the media.
If you don't like something don't read it. Don't buy it, don't click it, don't share it. I've not read the recent Leckie article in question and don't think I've ever bought The Sun so Gersnet's forum ban on the tabloid's content doesn't really affect me much. Indeed, Bill Leckie was never a writer I thought had much to say and from what I hear that's not changed.

It's been a long, hard six months for Rangers players. Yes, they might not work the kind of gruelling shifts many of our fans do and they all earn a lot more than most of us can even dream about but the best part of 40 games in less than six months is still a big physical and mental test. After Saturday's game we will have played 38 matches - the same as our whole domestic league season. That cannot be downplayed.
There’s a basic rule of thumb that wherever competition exists then you have to put effort in to just stand still, to keep your place. To stay ahead you have to adapt, react and put the work in, put more and better work in than those you’re competing against. As soon as you ease off then others will step up and take your place - especially when that place is at the top of the pile.
Ibrox Stadium is a football stadium located on the south side of the River Clyde, on Edmiston Drive in the Ibrox district of Glasgow. It is the home ground of Scottish Premier League club Rangers and has an all-seated capacity of 51,082. Ibrox is presently the third largest football stadium in Scotland and tenth largest stadium in the United Kingdom. You can view a full gallery of stadium images below this article.
From every corner of the world have come visitors to Ibrox Stadium, eager to see the home of The Rangers Football Club. Every week during the season you will find a constant stream of people from every walk of life on the weekly pilgrimage. And when their tour of inspection is over, you will, I have no doubt, hear them say: "It is truly a wonderful stadium - and wasn't the Trophy Room just terrific."
