Alfredo Morelos broke Henrik Larsson’s goal scoring record for a single season after his double against Feyenoord last night but surely Rangers fans don’t believe he is better than the Hoops legend, do they?

The Colombian has, to his credit, scored 5 goals in the group stages this season and his other 8 came in the four qualifying rounds that Rangers had to play starting, in what feels like, last season some time.

Larsson’s tally of 12 came in the season where they were defeated by Jose Mourinho’s Porto in the final of the UEFA Cup in 2003, no qualifiers, just straight knockout games against decent sides.

At the same age, Larsson had already been to a World Cup and European Championships whilst Morelos was left out of Colombia’s Copa America squad because of his “questionable” temperament.

Is Larsson's record more impressive than Morelos'?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Hoops fans took to Twitter at the announcement of Morelos’ “record” and reminded their Glasgow rivals what a real goalscoring legend looks like.


And for those old enough to remember…

If you’re not old enough, ask your Dad!
