One little draw tomorrow is all it takes, and Rangers are formally crowned Scottish Premiership Champions 20/21.

This season has been a simply stunning and extraordinary achievement, and we barely know where to start with it.

And yet, in this entry, we’re going to do a Monty Python and go for something left field and ‘completely different’:

Alfredo Morelos’ English!

The Colombian star has recently hit form again, and shocked fans when he appeared on BT Sport on Thursday to give his first-ever public interview in English.

Sure, not quite an epicure, but the guy won a lot of hearts with a very decent attempt at speaking our tongue, and that is what gave him the confidence to do it again today.

If the 6th of March couldn’t get any better than Rangers basically winning the title and Steven Gerrard committing his future, our Colombian striker added to the fun by giving a second interview on Rangers TV in the UK’s mother tongue, and once again it was pretty decent.

Clearly a little nervous about public speaking in non-Spanish, we have to give Morelos colossal credit for what has been an astonishing attitude change the past few months.

From his previous sullen disinterest, especially in 2020, the Colombian looks genuinely happy for the first time since joining – happy enough, that is, to actually speak publicly in English.

And tell us how happy he is.

It’s actually surreal give we’ve had almost four years of a media blackout from him, bar Spanish interviews with an interpreter or subtitles, to now see the lad speaking our language and doing so with an admirable competence and decent level of confidence.

Is it a sign he’s actually staying?

It’s probably the most convincing one yet – he has Champions League guaranteed next season, he gets a winner’s medal for the Premiership and he might get a Scottish cup medal too.

And no one can deny his recent maturity on the pitch, letting things go, not letting himself get riled, and actually looking sincerely happy to be in the shirt.

Plus the performance of his career v Antwerp and that giant goal to win in Livi.

Is this the new Morelos – staying to torment opponents?

We hope so.

That would yet another wonderful story on a wonderful day.
