Alfredo Morelos: Rangers injury boost after unexpected return from four month lay-off

With Kemar Roofe also struggling for fitness this pre-season Giovanni van Bronckhorst turned to Antonio Colak after signing the striker alternative from PAOK Salonika and the Croatian started both friendly matches with West Ham and Spurs last week, to take pole position for a place in the Premiership kick-off this weekend.
