Steven Gerrard cut short an interview with Sky Sports when he was asked about Alfredo Morelos.
Before the match Sky screened a cosy catch up between the Ibrox boss and Jamie Carragher but after watching his side beat Aberdeen 1-0 the atmosphere quickly got chilly.

Gerrard was happy to answer various questions with his trademark ‘Yeeee of course’ before stringing together some clichés while attempting to appear interested before the subject turned to his non-scoring striker.
Morelos continued his run without scoring in the SPFL which stretches back to December.
The former HJK Helsinki starlet appeared to be badly out of shape as he niggled away at the Dons defenders while having next to no impact in the penalty box.
Despite agreeing personal terms with Lille last weekend there has been no negotiations between the two clubs leaving Morelos more frustrated than usual as another life changing transfer slips by.
The injured Jermain Defoe is the only other striker in Gerrard’s first team squad.
