Morelos insists he won't change his style

29th March 2019, 14:30 by Simon Barlow

Alfredo Morelos insists he won't alter his all-action style as the Rangers striker prepares to face Celtic in Sunday's Old Firm Derby.

The Colombian has been sent off four times for Rangers this season - albeit one red card was later rescinded - and been banned for a total of six games.

"I am a very 'hot' player on the field, I'm very passionate and I like it," the Premiership's top scorer with 17 goals told Rangers TV.

"I also like coming in strong, powerfully and hitting the ball hard. I would never change the way I am.

"I like playing in the air, I like clashing, I like frustrating the defence. No-one can faze me, I'm the kind of player that is always dedicated to my team, and I fight for my team."

Morelos, 22, has revealed he vowed to "take care" of his "very poor" family in Colombia after the death of his younger sister.

"My family is very proud of me. My mother, my father, they cry watching me play," he added.

"Since my little sister died, I told my mother, 'I'm going to take care of you and my family,' and now, thanks to God, we're doing really well.

"My family supports me unconditionally, they always give me that motivation, that love to do things better every day. The love of my parents, my sisters, it makes me proud to be doing what I've been doing so far."
