Alfredo Morelos: 21 Rangers goals in Europe

Alfredo Morelos entered Rangers club history last week when he matched Ally McCoist’s European goal record last week.

Some 23 years since Ally McCoist netted his last goal in continental competition, Colombian Morelos matched the 21-goal tally with a header against Lech Poznan in last week’s Europa League group stage match at Ibrox.

McCoist is still the all-time leading Scottish-based goalscorer in European competition but a goal against Benfica, Standard Liege or another against Poznan – or even beyond further in the competition, could give Morelos the top spot.

Here we look back at how ‘El Bufalo’ achieved each of his 21 European goals – the first against NK Osijek in July 2018 through to last week’s super-sub appearance against Lech via Feyenoord, Legia Warsaw and Porto.

Will more images be added over the coming season or will two of Rangers fans’ much-loved strikers continue to share top spot in the Ibrox record books?
