It was the perfect combination- Mark Hateley and the Daily Record.
The former England striker was talking up the brilliance of Alfredo Morelos in a podcast with the Glasgow based publisher managing to add some incredible top spin.
First up was Hateley who claimed that it wasn’t so long ago that Morelos was scaring defenders shitless- it wasn’t so long ago that Joey Barton and Nicky Kranjcar were coming to Scotland to sort out Scott Brown.
Round about the same time Mark Warburton was being discussed as a future England manager with James Tavernier and Martyn Waghorn on the brink of international call ups.
That claim wasn’t enough for the Record, apparently at some unknown stage in the past Morelos had scared CELTIC sh*tless!
Over the course of six years the chunky Colombian has scored three times against Celtic. Twice in the freaky conditions of Lockdown- the only goal in front of fans was a cup final consolation that impressed his manager so much that Morelos was substituted 10 minutes later.
With three Glasgow derbies coming up over the space of five or six weeks there is bound to be much more off the radar coverage from the Sports Desk at the Record.

We are more scared of Mark O’Hara. His record against us is better.

The only way Morelos would scare defenders now is by taking his top off. pic.twitter.com/jn2b0Afwcq
