How many Rangers fans have noticed these two key points?


Rangers’ summer training camp in Malaga has been going extremely well, with hard work in the sunshine and extremely productive sessions to get these underworked players fit and ready.

However, eagle-eyed fans may have noticed two key developments since the side travelled to Spain last week which both bode interestingly for the season ahead, and both of them involve striker Alfredo Morelos.

The first was a little pre-session keepie-uppie with winger Daniel Candeias. The one thing which stood out about this was just how technically outstanding  Candeias was during it – he has rarely had a chance in the side to demonstrate such quality, given he’s usually running at top speed on the flanks, but his skill was extremely impressive and far above what he’s even shown on the pitch. It gave some idea of just how good a player Candeias really is – if he had had a little more pace he would have had a much bigger career.

However, the notable contrary to this was Morelos – while not awful, the Colombian didn’t demonstrate anything like a quarter of the same ability, and it backed up that what he lacks in finesse and subtle skill he makes up for in work ethic and graft – silky play Morelos will never give, but his all he certainly will.

The second aspect we noticed here on Ibrox Noise was just how happy Alfredo Morelos has looked since he got on the flight and even in pre-season in general. The lad has just looked much more settled with frequent grins and plenty of interaction with others around him – especially since arriving in Spain.

Has the Scottish weather had a part to play in depressing him? Let’s not forget Finland is hardly tropical either but he did well there, and he surely knows England is not exactly Barbados for its own part but he wants to play there, but nevertheless he’s looked extremely happy in the temperatures of Andalusia.

As we say though, he looked chirpy enough at the Hummel Training Centre too, so maybe, just maybe the hitman is finally happy and feeling content to be at Ibrox?

Obviously while some of this is conjecture it’s based on fact, and the conclusions we draw are only our own opinions but nevertheless it’s all intriguing food for thought as preparations for the new season continue.
