Rangers defender reveals potentially worrying insight about team mate

 Article by: Kirsty

Us here at Ibrox Noise have a hatred of these plastic pitches and we haven’t been shy in saying so. So when we tuned into the coverage of today's game we weren’t overly optimistic of a winning result; more on that later guys.

Then in the build up of the game came a Q&A with Joe Worrall, who incidentally today proved why he was being picked over Katic. Anyway, he was asked the usual questions, some were funny others were standard. Then came “Worst person to be stuck in a lift with?”  His reply was;

“Probably Morelos. 1) he can’t speak a word of English and 2) he’d probably beat me up. He’s an angry little man”

This answer bothered me folks. I find Morelos a dichotomy. Sometimes I love him, others I very much dislike him and his petulant attitude. Now, we know that Morelos’ grasp of English is pretty null and void but to not speak any English at all just strikes us as being a little disrespectful.

We aren’t expecting him to hit us with some Shakespeare but a little goes a long way. When players join foreign clubs they want to feel included, to settle in. Learning the club's language just seems to be what players do to ingratiate yourself in that country, culture, and climate not to mention the basic ability to completely communicate with your team mates on the pitch.

To be able to have a one to one conversation with your manager is standard.

If he still doesn’t speak English what does that say about his commitment to the club? Yes he recently signed an extended contract until 2022 but if you aren’t willing to try to learn a few words of your current club's language then that doesn’t strike me as something amazingly positive.

He was probably our best player today so it’s not all doom and gloom. His goal was very good and his little heart gesture to the fans was equally as heartwarming.

But come on Alf, try and learn a little so you can join in with the rest of us.
