Already this season Jonny Hayes and Chris Jullien have experienced the joy of scoring in a Glasgow derby.
That magic moment when the tension valve is released, one group of supporters explode in joy as the other lot fall silent in utter despair, dejection and desolation. Usually the guys with the blue scarves and superiority complex.
For three seasons Alfredo Morelos has wanted to be that hero. He has watched as Josh Windass, Ryan Jack, Daniel Candeias and even Scotty Arfield have taken the adulation of the Ibrox support after finding the net against Selik.

The thought of scoring against the hoops and running towards the hordes with his face contorted in a cocktail of anger and joy is the dream for the former HJK Helsinki starlet.
Problem is that the harder he tries the more he fails. Confronted by Craig Gordon, Scott Bain or Fraser Forster, Morelos turns into Filip Sebo as he tries to burst the net.
With every miss he has the desire to score gets greater, now to an overwhelming level that effects his team-mates.
Ryan Kent looked on in despair as his team-mate blasted a shot off the legs of Forster at Hampden, a cut-back would have presented the £7m star with a virtual open goal.
Skipper James Tavernier handed over a penalty kick at Hampden to help his star striker break his duck. It failed.
There was one consolation for the Colombian at Hampden. In a rare act of sportsmanship in the Glasgow derby Celtic fans chanted ‘Alfredo, Alfredo’ as their heroes paraded the trophy after the final whistle.
