Rangers put in a better shift today, if nothing magical, to secure three points against a stubborn Hearts, but it was the attitude and demeanour of striker Alfredo Morelos which got tongues wagging.
His ‘warm up’, if you can call it that, pre-match, when the 21-year old Colombian striker was named as a sub, consisted of lightly tapping the ball around a 20-yard radius in a manner which suggested he’d rather be doing anything else, and Rangers fans aren’t exactly thrilled with the impression he gave off.

Sour-faced in the dugout, and forcing himself grim-faced to take part in an otherwise cheery Daniel Candeias-inspired celebration for the second goal, Morelos continues to look as happy to be at Ibrox as we are to have him at the club these days.
We also wonder if the young man’s mood has been helped by potential loss of sponsorship, due to the absence of his trademark colourful boots replaced by bog-standard black ones.
Nevertheless, there is no excuse for the sheer moodiness and evident immaturity the lad showed today.
