Rangers: The 10-goal duo that continues to impress
Rangers FC are enjoying great form in all competitions as a result of stellar performances from key players.
Rangers FC are getting the job done on all fronts this season, and they are claiming positive results in convincing fashion. Steven Gerrard’s men have dropped four points in the Scottish top flight with draws against Livingston (0-0) and Hibernian (2-2), but they maintain an undefeated record.
In the Europa League, Rangers cruised past both of their opponents – Lincoln Red Imps and Willem II – with a combined score of 9-0. The Light Blues will now get ready for a massive clash against Turkish giants Galatasaray on October 1st.
Rangers can attribute their early domestic and continental success to the entire squad for their collective effort on both ends of the pitch, but two players stand out and deserve extra praise.
Ryan Kent and Alfredo Morelos have been on fire for Rangers this season, and they have displayed true professionalism in the process. Yes, Morelos did have his head turned at one point, but it is difficult to avoid that when over 30 teams across Europe inquire about your services.
Kent was the victim of the same type of distraction when Leeds United kept knocking on Rangers’ door to get a move over the line, but he made it clear that he wants to stay put. His performances this season also reflect that mentality.
When taking a look at the numbers, Kent and Morelos are in top form as they have a combined running tally of ten goals for Rangers in the Premiership and Europa League.
The dynamic winger and lethal striker will certainly attract more transfer interest over the next few months, but that is irrelevant at the moment. What does matter is their ability to keep this scoring trend going.
Rangers have a long journey ahead of them as they chase the league title and another deep run in the Europa League, but they are in good hands with Kent and Morelos leading the front line.
Kemar Roofe is also playing his part with three goals, but Gerrard will hope that Cedric Itten, Jermain Defoe, and Joe Aribo can also find their rhythm when they return to full fitness.
Pressure to perform also rests on the shoulders of Ianis Hagi, but, so far, the Romanian star is making up for his lack of goals – one – with three assists.
