Couple of articles slaughtering Alfredo in the press just now. One even labels him a journeyman and the other a diddy. Unbelievable descriptions of a 21 year old who is currently leading the scoring charts in this league. If he was wearing a green and grey hooped top they would probably be touting him for 30 million. Fuck them, hopefully wee Morelos just keeps showing the same commitment as he has done and works a wee bit more on his compusure and rams their opinions down their throats.

Can you point us in the direction of said articles. I would love to read them for myself to get the context.

By Bill Leckie 

 

The striker wasted several opportunities to give his side the lead and the fact that Gers fans celebrated the draw like a league win sums up where they are as a club

ANY other day of the season, a big-money striker misses two sitters that glaring and the fans are calling for his head.

Yet somehow, amid the myopic madness of an Old Firm slugfest, Alfredo Morelos swaggered off the Parkhead turf with Rangers supporters hailing him a hero.

They chanted his name as he argued with the ref over a foul.

Stood and applauded him when he was subbed like he’d just rattled a hat-trick.

You know, rather than being the guy who had blown their chance of winning one of these games, just for once.

Seriously. No frontman will ever step on to two better crosses, in as much space, with the keeper so helpless and a massive derby hanging in the balance, only to fluff his lines both times.

The first chance he maybe gets the benefit of the doubt on, seeing as Craig Gordon instinctively shot out a leg, and deflected the downward header for a corner.

But even then, he could have picked his spot.

But as for the second?

Sorry, but the Colombian’s weedy waft of the napper at James Tavernier’s defence-splitting delivery pretty much summed up the rank-rotten quality of this whole messy affair.
Let’s not mince words here.

The fact Rangers and their 7,000-strong travelling support still ended up celebrating a win that got away as if they had just clinched the league pretty much sums up where both these clubs are right now.

celtic? They were roundly booed at the end of 90 turgid minutes.

By the time Brendan Rodgers led them on a leg-weary lap of honour, three sides of the stadium were already two-thirds empty.

The sense of anti- climax as a magnificent year ended in mediocrity was all-consuming.

Over to the right of the main stand, though? Party time.

A bouncing, bawling mass of defiance, the full get-it-up-ye bit, faces contorted as they stood on their seats, arms outstretched, or pushed up against the yellow line of cops and stewards to yell across no man’s land.

Quite how anyone could get that worked up about a football match this poor is beyond me.

But I suppose when you have been as far out of the picture as Rangers have for this long, and when you’ve become as accustomed to rolling teams over as celtic have, success and failure become relative concepts.

As ever, you watch and listen as it all unfolds — the venom, the hatred, the over-reaction to absolutely everything — and it’s weird to not give a monkey’s who wins.
It never has been and never will be a day for neutrals, for even-handedness, for logic.

The reaction of those Rangers fans to Morelos says it all.

It’s like they were saying ‘OK, so he might be a diddy, but he’s OUR diddy — and that’s what counts’!

Maybe when they went back to the pub or to their living rooms and watch the replays they will have cursed him.

But in the moment, it’s all so tribal out there, so ferociously Us and Them, that even the normally-unforgiveable is defended to the hilt.For me, that’s why this fixture never really improves as an actual football match.

But then again, when did that ever matter to any of them?It’s a fair bet plenty who were there would only really get an idea of what happened once they watched it back.At the time, it’s just a frenzy, a blur, and in this case, that lack of focus showed itself as much on the park as it did in the crowd.

They say it gets so loud out in the middle players can’t hear themselves think.

Which maybe explains why so much of what they did was so bloody brainless, a morass of misplaced passes and hoofed clearances.

celtic in particular seemed to be locked in some sort of sensory deprivation chamber where they couldn’t co-ordinate minds to feet, all their usual style and pace replaced by a tension, a lack of ideas.

A mental and physical numbness; their skins saved by Gordon’s stop from that first Morelos header and, before then, a flying tip-over to deny Tavernier’s volley.

celtic are more than overdue a lull after the exertions of that 69-game unbeaten domestic run, the thrill of clinching the Treble in the first season under Brendan Rodgers, and the graft of getting to and then trying to stay in the Champions League.

They have already played 38 games this season, 61 in the calendar year, and have looked for weeks like the winter break couldn’t come quick enough.

Yet they have still signed off with four clean sheets in the wake of THAT 4-0 humping from Hearts.

This was their eighth Old Firm game without defeat and it was only the second time since Rodgers arrived that they have failed to score in domestic competition.

Put that into perspective against the fact Rangers gave it everything they had yet still couldn’t get over the line and you know for sure whose shoes you’d rather be in.

Leckie uses this article to try and undermine the fans as much as he does Morelos. Leckie is so out of touch with reality and so wide of the mark its unbeleivable the editor allows this to go to print.

His articles are consistently laced with undertones of anti Rangers agenda. He  cant help himself and with his limited skills and lack of ability as a sports writer he cant disguise his personal hatred for us with his transparent spin on everything he writes.

Dont buy the rag that prints his rubbish.

Unbelievable article about a 21 year old . First season in the country , first Season at a massive club .First time away to them.   Top scorer in the league . Bullied the greatest team that's ever graced the earth and led the line alone at that age . Aye he missed a couple ( one was an excellent save too btw ) but thst happens . Picks up the typical celtic fan line that we all saw coming . That we're celebrating a draw like a win.  Too right I'll celebrate after the last few years. Bitter bitter bastard

Press in Scotland is fucking shocking. 

Morelos must have them scared. He is going to be the next target for those wankers.

Thought morelos was quality. A 21 year old top scorer in Scotland misses a chance. Retards should go watch mccoist playing. The greatest goalscorer Scotland has seen. He missed chances too but morelos has much more to his game.

If you watch football every week in the EPL, you will hear managers talk about missed chances and opportunity's. Every team, in every game.

That and defensive mistakes are and always will be, part of the game.

I dont understand why some have a go at Morelos, I think he does an excellent job. He is strong as an Ox and holds and links the play well. By far the best striker we have had for quite a while......only criticism I have is he can waste a few chances but I guess every player can do that. It doesnt stop him from having another go and he will only get better with age and if we manage to improve the quality of service to him.

I hope he is here for a number of years as he is one I rate highly.

I’ve been out of the loop since the 30th with work commitments and this is genuinely the first ‘press’ reaction I’ve read on what I thought was a hard fought and entertaining game, in which we had been pretty much written off in before a ball had been kicked. Genuinely astounded at Leckies ridiculous column in which he literally character assassinates a young talented player (Morelos) (‘our diddy’ wtf) who incidentally is leading the SPFL scoring charts. The lad did have guilt edge opportunities to score however the keeper had been well positioned for both and 9 times out of 10 both most likely would have found the back of the net. Is it wrong for the support to show their appreciation at his and the team in generals work rate and endeavour, absolutely not. I won’t even start about how he bangs on about the east end opponents are hard done by and allegedly tired by all their games to date etc, etc. In summary, poor column, poor ‘journalist’, poor ‘newspaper’ and poor underhand attempt to demean a club and support who over the past 5 years have relentlessly proved to be second to none.... (apologies for the length of post, needed said)...

100%

Best post of the year so far.

I do like Morelos but he could do with working on his finishing especially his heading ability,he's only 21 though so bags of potential and scope to improve there aren't many who are the finished article at 21

Leckie is a piss poor journalist who cries out for attention. This article was utter nonsense, similar to one on the clubs statement about Mcinnes not signing. He pointed out like a lot on here that the statement was ridiculous but he couldn't help mentioning Manchester and Barcelona riots, sectarian signing policies, songs he doesn't like etc etc for absolutely no reason whatsoever. Hes nowhere near as clever as he thinks he is either. For years he gobbed on about independence then in the run up to the referendum made out he would be voting no only for him to change his mind to yes at the last minute after a heart to heart with his oldest son. It was like the tit thought undecided voters would think"wow, leckies voting yes, maybe I should too"

No mention of the continuous amount of games morelos has played by Mackie the bawbag. 21 year old, top goal scorer in the league and I think played most weeks since April without a break, out with his injury. Plenty more to come from the wee man once he recharges the batteries.
