ALFREDO MORELOS has topped off a great season by being nominated by his fellow pros for the PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year.

The Colombian has enjoyed a brilliant start to his Rangers career and it has been recognised by the PFA’s members across the country who have voted him into this season’s top four.

He will contest the award with Scott McKenna (Aberdeen), Kieran Tierney (Celtic) and Lewis Morgan (St Mirren) in a star-studded ceremony this Sunday (April 29).

Morelos has scored 18 goals to date and is currently second in the Premiership’s goal scoring charts; only Kilmarnock’s Kris Boyd has scored more.

Speaking after his nomination he said: “I’m very happy to have been nominated and it means a lot for me in my career to have the support of the fellow professionals who have voted for me.

“It has been a wonderful year in Scotland – I have come up against very good players in all the games so far this season.

“It’s also really nice to see the warmth people have shown towards me and this motivates me to be better every day.”
