Jack just hopes More­los keeps war­rior spirit

Evening Times - - SPORT -

RYAN JACK hopes striker Al­fredo More­los doesn’t lose his com­pet­i­tive edge af­ter com­ing un­der fire for his Ibrox dis­ci­plinary record.

The Colom­bian was sent off in the de­feat to Aberdeen on Wed­nes­day night and will miss the trip to face Dundee to­mor­row af­ter­noon.

He is also ruled out for the visit of Hamil­ton seven days later af­ter pick­ing up his sixth book­ing of the cam­paign against Liv­ingston last month.

More­los saw his red card at Pit­to­drie on the open­ing day of the cam­paign over­turned on ap­peal but was also dis­missed in Ufa as Steven Ger­rard’s side reached the Europa League group stages.

Boss Ger­rard has warned his play­ers to im­prove their dis­ci­pline on the park and Jack, who was sent off four times last term, knows there is a bal­ance to be struck.

He said: “For my­self any­way, you al­ways needs to go into games with that com­pet­i­tive edge.

“If you don’t then you are up against it straight away, es­pe­cially as a mid­fielder.

“So my­self, I al­ways start with a com­pet­i­tive edge know­ing that if I do get booked I’m ob­vi­ously one late tackle away from go­ing off the park.

“That leads to sus­pen­sions and also killing your team-mates on the night.

“With Al­fredo, he’s done bril­liantly for us. He’s won us so many games this sea­son al­ready.

“He’s been bril­liant to play with this sea­son and I see a to­tal change in him from last sea­son.

“For us, we’re def­i­nitely stick­ing with him as a big player for us.

“He’s just as com­pet­i­tive in train­ing as that’s just the way he plays. He just wants to do as well as he can.”
