Rangers had a rollercoaster of a night upon their return to Europa League action against Royal Antwerp.
A late Borna Barisic penalty sealed a thrilling 4-3 away win for Steven Gerrard’s side.
Alfredo Morelos is known for his goalscoring – and is the club’s all-time top scorer in European competition – but wasn’t on the scoresheet last night.
Instead, he turned creator, wracking up two assists for the Gers on a night which will live long in the memory.
Those assists were two of five chances the hitman created on the night.
As per WhoScored, that tally was as many as the rest of Gerrard’s starting eleven combined.
That underlines how much creative burden Morelos carried last night as Rangers posed a threat throughout.
Morelos has sometimes been the type of striker where if he doesn’t score, he doesn’t contribute a lot or gets frustrated.
But he was able to offer plenty last night without getting on the scoresheet and he was imperative to getting the victory.
Four away goals should really mean the second leg is a formality but the nature of last night’s crazy game means Rangers still have a job to do next week.
Morelos will hope to find the back of the next on Thursday to help book a place in the last 16.
But if he lays on another five opportunities for others, there’s every chance someone else will take some of that goalscoring burden off him.
