Steven Gerrard’s side progressed to the next stage 2-0 on aggregate, following last week’s 2-0 victory at Ibrox, and would have been confident of travelling to Macedonia and adding to the goals scored by Jamie Murphy and James Tavernier in the first-leg.

Gerrard opted to deploy Morelos as his side’s lone striker in a 4-2-3-1 formation, but it wasn’t long before the Colombian forward was wasting chances, with several going begging in the first-half.
The same pattern continued in the second, and it seems Morelos’s underwhelming display wasn’t missed by Gers supporters watching on social media – and some of these comments are pretty brutal indeed:
Alfredo Morelos is woeful.
Think everyone has finally agreed on this tonight. Not good enough to lead the Rangers attack.

Starting a petition to stop crossing the ball to morelos in the air can't handle these headers

Morelos was an outstanding striker. Backed him up for months since Christmas. But tonight is one of the worst performances av seen from a ranger striker. Seen junior performances better than that. Can’t control a simple ball into him. Shocking man.

Apparently I’ve said this before 👀
But if you think Morelos and Windass can lead us this year in attack we would be aswell chucking it now

Morelos drives my up the wall most of the time but I can't help but have a soft spot for him, he always looks raging about something I love it

I would accept ANY offer for Morelos. He is absolutely brutal in every aspect of his play. A terrible, terrible player.

need more up top, Morelos is a lost cause

Would love too know what our managers have seen In Morelos Don't think seen anymore worse a performance from him than I did tonight
— Jamie Mccomb (@JamieMccomb12) July 17, 2018
Honest to god I'm done with Morelos & Windass. If they start next game then what's the ducking point anymore.

Another 90 minutes. Another woeful Morelos performance.

Can’t even give the “Morelos he’s not had a break from football” excuse either anymore🤷🏼♂️
— Scott'Forrester (@ScottForrrester) July 17, 2018
And people preferred Alfredo Morelos over Jason Cummings.

Morelos has had his break. Why is he still dreadful
— declan (@Declan_1802) July 17, 2018
Right so we’re finally all in agreement, Morelos is shite?? Who do we want to sign?
— David Gilfillan (@daviegilf84) July 17, 2018
When Drake said “sell Alfredo Morelos” I felt that
— Connor🃏 (@connorstrang72_) July 17, 2018
Is Morelos really a lost cause? Should Rangers actively look to sell him?
Was he really that bad?
