STEVEN GERRARD admits striker Alfredo Morelos is the biggest test of his man-management skills at Ibrox.

The Colombian has been a hugely influential player for Gerrard during his time as Rangers boss and he has scored 29 times for the Light Blues so far this term.

But Morelos has often found himself making headlines for all the wrong reasons on and off the park as he has become arguably the highest profile player in Scottish football.

Gerrard said: “What I will say is he is the type of person who can cope better than most in that situation. But Alfredo is someone who is a challenge for me. He is a big challenge for me. He is the player in the group that tests me the most.

“So let’s hope that he can get back doing what he does best, consistently, which is scoring goals for this club because that’s what he gets highly paid to do so his focus and everything needs to be on that.

“We will give him all the support that he needs off the pitch as well, to try to make sure that he’s free to go and do his stuff on the pitch.

“Alfredo is the maverick in the group. He is the one you guys ask the most questions about. He is the fans’ favourite, if you like.

“But a lot goes on in his world, on and off the pitch. As a manager, he is the one who I find I have to put a lot of my focus and attention to.”
