Morelos took his tally to the season to 27 goals during last night’s Scottish Cup fifth-round replay at Ibrox and Defoe seems to be impressed by what he’s seen in the 22-year-old since moving to Glasgow.

Even so, the 36-year-old wasn’t afraid to shine the spotlight on his fellow forward during today’s media conference, ahead of the weekend’s Premiership game with Hamilton:
Do you think Morelos will follow in the footsteps of Defoe and eventually end up in the English Premier League?
And can they both play together up-front at Ibrox?
