GVB has finally relented on the refusal to select Alfredo Morelos and Antonio Colak together by confirming he’s now open to the idea, in a potential formation change for the future.

Speaking at his pre-St Mirren presser the manager, under pressure to use his two key assets up front rather than ever have one of them wasting on the bench, admitted finally that he has now opened himself up to the possibility of using them.

He said:

“I think everything is possible. They are two players who have goal threat. Colak has started the campaign and he’s been fantastic. Morelos is scoring goals as well and getting fitter and stronger every game he plays so we have two good strikers. Kemar is back training with the squad so there’s other options. I think at moments in games they can definitely capable of playing together but we have to wait and see which game we use them from the start or maybe in moments of the game when we have to force a goal but they can definitely be on the pitch at the same time.”

After previously dismissing the notion with more than a hint of derision, Giovanni, realising what he’s doing generally isn’t overly working, has conceded slight defeat on his stubborn refusal to only play one man up top.

Of course, as a manager he has never once used a duo in attack, but clearly he cannot keep both men happy by putting one of them on the bench all the time – and his decision to drop Colak on Tuesday was roundly greeted with outrage.

While some fans supported the selection of Morelos up top, the result far from vindicated it, and few to none defended it afterwards.

We at Ibrox Noise have supported the idea of the pair of them up front, in a formation that doesn’t get used often enough in these modern times of football.

It would definitely work and now Gio has presented intention to use it.
