Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has heaped praise on Alfredo Morelos for declaring himself fit to face Lincoln Red Imps in the Europa League on Thursday night.
And the Ibrox manager insists it's the Colombian's way that he'll put his body on the line for the club to keep scoring goals.
Morelos grabbed a double during the 5-0 win over the Gibraltarian outfit after replacing James Tavernier at half time, just days after being forced off against Dundee United.
A gash on his right knee left him unable to finish the 4-0 win over the Tannadice outfit on Saturday but he was back firing on all cylinders on Thursday.
The 24-year-old looked back to his old self as he scored two and played a part in Jermain Defoe's goal as well.
And Gerrard was delighted with his performance as he said: “Alfredo’s fine. He’s still got stitches in his knee but he played last night and would be available.
“It’s impressive given the injury he’s got. To come through three days after that is fantastic.
“I think it’s a great visual for me to see him similing, see him enjoying his football. See him in good shape.
“We know he’s a fantastic goalscorer. We know his goals were different last night but two fantastic finishes. He’s in the right place at the right time for the first one, which you don’t coach. You’re born with that.
“The second finish he shows his class and his touch. Even before a ball was kicked, to make himself available he’s very robust. For a manager he’s always there for you. A lot of players wouldn’t have pulled through with what he had at the weekend.
"Alfredo is someone who will put his body on the line for the club. He will have a rest day today and then be ready for the weekend.
“I’m really pleased for him and it’s great to see him smiling. He has a great rapport with the players on the pitch.
“He seems a lot happier in the last few weeks.”
The major blow to Gerrard on Thursday was Kemar Roofe being forced off in the first half against Red Imps.
He had gone down with a calf injury and had to be replaced with teenager Nathan Patterson joining the action.
But the former Leeds star should be fit for Sunday when Rangers take on Hibs, although there's not such good news about others.
Gerrard added: “On the back of last night we’re very confident that Kemar will pull through. We think he’s got that really early. He’s got a bit of tightness but he’s been really sensible with it. I said to the players, on that surface, not to be taking any risks so he’s done the right thing We’re confident on Kemar.
“Just got an update on Leon Balogun and he’ll clear with the physios today and be available as well.
“Jack, Aribo and Barker are progressing well but won’t be with us for the weekend.”
