Alfredo Morelos has been on fine form recently, smashing in goals left, right and centre. In fact, his brace against Hearts in the semi-final brought his goal tally for the season to 20 (

This caused many Rangers fans to discuss how good the player actually is. While one fan was just eager to see the player assist Steven Gerrard in lifting a trophy, other went as far as saying he is the best striker in Scotland at the moment.

Another suggested that if the player was having a similar run of form while wearing a Celtic shirt that he would be valued much more highly. If Morelos wasn’t a Rangers player, perhaps he wouldn’t be overlooked so much?

But while these claims that Morelos is the best striker in the league may have some validity, are we not, as fans, forgetting the other striker that we have at our disposal? Jermain Defoe, while not as prolific as Morelos over the last two weeks, is the league’s top goalscorer. The Englishman has 10 goals this season, averaging just 47 minutes between goals (BBC).

But the debate over who the best striker in the country is relatively redundant when the competition is between two players on the same team. However, it would still be great to find out, wouldn’t it? Vote in the poll below to settle the debate. Morelos or Defoe?

Who is the better striker?

At the end of the day, Steven Gerrard will be thrilled that he has two top-class strikers to choose from. Should they both stay fit, the rotation of these players will provide Gerrard with two fresh and clinical strikers to be called upon when the other isn’t available.

  • I’ve never liked crowing about any Rangers striker until he can hit the net in old firm matches. El Bufallo is for sure the best striker in the country right now but if he can score the goal or goals that help us to win the league cup next month and then the league title, he would be a Rangers legend already. Stevie-G as well.
