Rangers legend Colin Stein reckons there’s no chance of Alfredo Morelos making it 10-in-a-row without a goal against Celtic

Rangers legend Colin Stein says there’s no chance of 10-in-a-row.

That’s because he’s tipping Alfredo Morelos to end his Celtic drought today in the first Old Firm clash of the season.

Morelos has played in nine derbies and failed to score in any of them.

Stein went through exactly the same agony after becoming the most-expensive player in Scottish football history when he moved from Hibs for £100,000 in 1968.

Fatefully, Stein broke his duck on January 2, 1971 – but his equaliser was quickly forgotten as 66 people died in an horrific crush at the end of the 1-1 draw that quickly became known as the Ibrox Disaster.

Stein, a Cup Winners’ Cup hero for Rangers in 1972, said: “It’s a real coincidence that I went nine Old Firm games without scoring, the same as Alfredo.

“Of course, it wasn’t easy for me at that time. When you move to Rangers for the fee I did, you want to be scoring against your main rivals.

“So the longer it went on, the more it preyed on my mind.

“I finally got my goal on January 2, 1971, and it was a massive relief for me – especially to score so late to level the match.

“But very quickly the goal became irrelevant as we started to learn of the horror of what had happened at Stairway 13.

“I think Sunday will be the day for Morelos.

“He will be full of confidence after that brilliant winner against Legia on Thursday night.

“He’s scoring big goals and it would be a great time to get another one.”

The Colombian copped five red cards last season – one reduced to yellow – but Stein admits he had a wild side, too.

He said: “He’s hot-headed and we have all seen how that can negatively impact the team.

“But I can’t criticise him for that because I was exactly the same – maybe worse!

“If you take it away, he might not be the same player.

“It gave me an edge when I played and I think it’s the same for Morelos.”
