Rangers played a 1-1 draw with Celtic in the Scottish premiership on Sunday as Mohamed Elyounoussi opened the score at the 23rd minute, while Alfredo Morelos equalized at the 38th minute.
Following the game, the Gers boss Steven Gerrard spoke out on Morelos, who scored his first Old Firm Derby goal.
“I thought his performance again was selfless. He did a lot of running and did well holding the ball up for us,” said Gerrard.
“He’ll be very relieved with his goal. We are because it should give him confidence and belief if we have to come here again this season.
“But credit to him because he’s scored big goals this season and you can’t get away from that.
“When you analyse the season so far he’s come up with big moments when you rely on your 9 to step up and score.
“But he should take a lift from that goal because the longer it goes the more people talk about it. He’ll have been aware of that.
“But with Alfredo it’s never through lack of trying. He’s a winner and he wants to win.
“He always tries to be a threat and unfortunately it hadn’t happened for him against Celtic before today.
“But it’s gone now and I think he’ll bounce into the next Old Firm with a lot of belief and confidence.”
Overall during this season, the centre-forward has scored 16 goals and provided 12 assists in 38 appearances.
