Video: Alfredo Morelos Says Sorry to Rangers Fans For Celtic Penalty Miss in Goal Celebration

Alfredo Morelos said sorry to Rangers fans for his penalty miss against Celtic at the weekend while celebrating his goal against Young Boys tonight.

The Colombian striker was pivotal again this evening as his goal helped Rangers to a 1-1 draw in their final Europa League group game.

Steven Gerrard’s men went into tonight’s games knowing that at least a point would see them through.

After Morelos’ opening goal it looked like Rangers would be going through to the last 32 as winners of their group – with Porto losing to Feyenoord at the time.

But a Borna Barisic own goal coupled with a Porto comeback to win 3-2 meant Rangers had to settle for second and a spot in the knockout stages beyond Christmas.

Going through was the main aim for Gerrard and his men – producing a positive after the negative of Sunday’s Betfred Cup Final defeat to Celtic.

At Hampden, Morelos had a frustrating afternoon, missing a number of chances and a penalty in the second half of a game Rangers dominated.

Morelos was obviously aware of how he’d let the fans down in Sunday’s game so made sure they knew he was sorry while celebrating tonight:

Rangers fans will still be disappointed after Sunday’s game, but going through tonight is a big achievement for the Ibrox club.
