Video: Alfredo Morelos Denied a Perfectly Good Goal Against Spartak Moscow

Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos looked as though he’d scored an excellent goal against Spartak Moscow tonight, only for the linesman to inexplicably flag the Colombian as offside.

Steven Gerrard’s men put in a scintillating first-half performance in Russia, with an own goal from Roman Eremenko getting the ball rolling before strikes from Daniel Candeias and Lassana Coulibaly sent them into the break leading 3-2.

But things could have been even more impressive for the Gers had Morelos’s goal stood, with the striker coolly stroking home for what would have made it 4-2.

As you can see from the image above, and various tweets from Gers supporters, Morelos was definitely onside, cruelly denying the 22-year-old his 15th goal of the season.

Were you convinced Morelos was onside as he received the ball? And how crucial could that linesman’s flag turn out to be at the end of the group stage?
