Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos has pledged to prove doubters wrong.
The Colombian even promised he would banish his own self-doubt after a slow start to the season.
In a brief post on his official Instagram account, Morelos wrote in Spanish, “I will go against anyone who thinks I can’t do it, even against myself if one day I doubt it.”
Morelos has scored just once in six appearances after returning from a thigh injury that ruled him out of the final stages of last season.
The 26-year-old had his fitness and attitude questioned by coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst after he was left out of the squad for Rangers’ Champions League second leg against PSV Eindhoven and remained on the key for several matches.
He was reinstated in the starting line-up for last week’s Champions League clash with Napoli at Ibrox and played 72 minutes, but was left on the bench for the duration of Rangers’ Premiership game against Dundee United on Saturday.
Substitute for former HJK Helsinki player Antonio Colak scored both goals in a 2-1 win to take his tally for the season to nine.
Morelos will have the opportunity to work on his fitness during the international break after being left out of Colombia’s squad for the friendlies against Guatemala and Mexico.
