Alfredo Morelos in 'my team' Rangers message as Giovanni van Bronckhorst gives encouraging future update

Rangers star Alfredo Morelos issued a message of congratulations to “my team" moments after Wednesday's huge 1-0 win over PSV Eindhoven.

Antonio Colak’s goal in the Netherlands secured the Ibrox side a 3-2 aggregate win over the Dutch giants to secure Champions League group stage football.

Rangers were without their Colombian talisman after he was dropped from the squad by Giovanni van Bronckhorst following his sending off against Hibs at the weekend.

Van Bronckhorst spoke about Morelos following the victory which will net Rangers huge sums of money and a potential group of Real Madrid, Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund.

The Dutchman gave a clear indication that he wants the striker to remain at Ibrox and be part of his plans, if he can find the necessary fitness levels.

"Morelos qualified for Champions League as well,” he said. “I think he’s also proud that he sees his team-mates, his club qualify for the biggest competition in the world. He’s still a Rangers player. I will push him the way I can to get him fit and get the Morelos back we all want.”
