🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇨🇴 Alfredo Morelos says he won't allow racism to push him out of Scotland

Colombia international Alfredo Morelos insists that the continuous racial abuse will not push him out of Scottish football, Glasgow Times reported.

Morelos has become one of Rangers' outstanding players in the Scottish Premiership since his move from HJK Helsinki three years ago and has made headlines around the world for his goalscoring abilities.

The 23-year-old has now revealed that since living in Scotland, he has been at the helm of racial abuse on and off the pitch.

"Yes I've felt racism both on and off the pitch," Morelos said. "It's very sad to feel that way but it's not something that affects me much. I just try to focus on my job which is scoring goals and winning matches.

"Sometimes it's frustrating when a crowd is throwing coins at me or throwing drinks at me, obviously saying racist things to me and making chants about my mother which is obviously very offensive.

"Those things affect my family and are frustrating but I am a strong person and I always believe things can be overcome with hard work. I just focus on my job and try to forget about these things.

"Playing in Old Firm games is the best feeling I've had in my football career. It's an incredible intensity and when you feel that passion from the crowd it makes you want to give everything you can on the pitch.

"Living in Glasgow is great but it is also complicated. The passion for football is incredible. Half the city loves me but half the city probably doesn't like me so much.

"I'm a person who likes to go out and meet people and go shopping and eat at restaurants but it's become difficult. Even though it's great to have people waiting for photos and to speak to you, it's also frustrating when people are insulting."

Morelos has also been made the football headlines due to being linked to several clubs across the world, however, he has insisted that he will remain at Rangers for as long as the club needs his services.

No," Morelos told Sky Sports. "At this point, my goal is to stay focused on my play and help Rangers stay focused on winning the title and trophies and if I do that I think everything will be calm and good for my family,

"I'm generally unfazed and it's more about my family and them feeling nervous about the situation."
