Morelos nets 100th Rangers goal in comeback win at St Mirren

Alfredo Morelos scored his 100th Rangers goal to help his side come from behind to win 2-1 at St Mirren and return to the top of the Scottish Premiership.

St Mirren had gone ahead after just four minutes through Connor Ronan’s spectacular long-range strike, only for the champions to turn the match on its head with two goals in the space of just a minute and 46 seconds.

The equaliser came after Alan Power caught Ianis Hagi just inside the area, with Kemar Roofe stepping up to convert the resulting penalty, before Morelos put the visitors ahead two minutes before half-time.

Captain James Tavernier broke clear down the right and from his inviting centre, the totally unmarked Colombia striker stooped to head home from six yards out to finally bring up his century of goals for the club in his 199th appearance.

As a result, Steven Gerrard’s side moved back to the top of the table, three points above Hearts, while St Mirren stay seventh after the end of their six-match unbeaten run.

What’s next?

St Mirren travel to Motherwell, while Rangers take on Aberdeen at Ibrox, with both Scottish Premiership games kicking off at 7.45pm on Wednesday.
