World News – GB – Steven Gerrard: Alfredo Morelos relishes a new Rangers competition for places



Gerrard believes Rangers don’t have to abuse the Colombian due to Kemar Roofe and Jermain Defoe’s strike options; watch Kilmarnock vs Rangers live on Sky Sports Football and Main Event from 11am Sunday; kick off at 12 p.m.

Despite being constantly linked with Ibrox leaving during the summer transfer window, the Colombian has remained at the club

During the same period, Kemar Roofe has joined £ 4.5m from Belgium’s Anderlecht side while Rangers still have Jermain Defoe at their disposal

This means Gerrard was able to alternate his top three as the Rangers managed to balance games at home and abroad

They are currently unbeaten atop the Scottish Premiership, six points ahead of second-placed Celtic and co-top of their Europa League group after Thursday night’s 1-0 win over Lech Poznan

Morelos came off the bench to score the winner against the Polish side with Gerrard delighted with how he reacted by not necessarily being the Rangers’ main man as they prepare to face Kilmarnock on Sunday, live on Sky Sports Football

On Morelos, Gerrard said: « He came, he was hungry, he couldn’t wait to continue, and he came and delivered

« I think those are the last three games now – (Kemar) Roofe obviously scored a fantastic goal, Jermain Defoe stepped up home plate and scored a fantastic goal, then it was Alfredo’s turn

« I think in previous seasons and times before we’ve probably overused Alfredo, due to our lack of options in the frontcourt

« But now we have competition for places, we have people ready to come in, people are hungry – there are probably a few who want to play more, so we are well positioned in this area. surface « 

Rangers, undefeated in 17 games in all competitions so far this season, can be nine points ahead of Premiership-top Celtic with a win over Killie – although the Hoops will have two games in hand

Jermain Defoe has made a living being in the right place at the right time…

It was never more evident than on Sunday when he sped past Livingston defender Jon Guthrie to lead James Tavernier’s perfect cross into the corner of the net

It was the club’s 300th goal in an illustrious career that saw him become one of the most revered strikers of his generation

In an exclusive interview with Sky Sports News reporter Dharmesh Sheth, Defoe digs through the archives and reveals the top five goals of his career…

I was at Rugby Park last weekend to watch Kilmarnock narrowly lose to the Hibs and the good news is defender Clevid Dikamona wasn’t as badly injured as we thought The former Hearts defenseman required a long treatment before being taken on a stretcher and while Alex Dyer will be without him for this game against the league leaders, thankfully it’s not a long-term injury.

In an offensive sense, I’ve been so impressed with Chris Burke over the last 12 months or so for Kilmarnock, his attitude and desire to contribute at 36 is stronger than ever. He will want to disturb Steven Gerrard’s men, who are constantly giving nothing on the defensive.Alfredo Morelos’ goal on Thursday night in the Europa League should see him make another start on Sunday In this extraordinary season where every league game is so important, c lucky for Rangers to be nine points ahead of Celtic with a win, despite having played two more games
