Morelos will learn - Defoe
Jermain Defoe has backed Alfredo Morelos and thinks his Rangers team-mate will mature and learn from his ongoing disciplinary issues.
The Colombian will sit out Rangers' trip to Motherwell on Sunday as he serves the second game of a four-match ban incurred when he was sent off against Celtic last weekend.
Defoe, who deputised for Morelos and scored in Gers' 3-0 midweek defeat of Hearts, believes the 22-year-old will learn as he grows older .
"I used to get involved, got sent off a few times. I had a little bit of that when I was at West Ham when I was young," ex-England striker Defoe told RangersTV.
"You think about the best forwards. Wayne Rooney had that a little bit when he was young. It's a part of growing up.
"You get old and you try and switch off and just focus on the games, focus on scoring goals.
"When you're a threat, you're a top player, defenders don't want to play against you, they try and provoke you and sometimes you react.
"With Alfredo, I'm sure that in time he'll blank it out and he'll become better at that.
"Alfredo's in the changing room, you can see his body language. He's gutted. He wants to play, he wants to score goals. But of course he'll learn."
