Morelos and Rangers look too sharp for Thistle

Rangers have found something approaching form, largely thanks to their new Colombian hitman Alfredo Morelos, and they can sting Partick Thistle in the first part of the sides' double-header.

The 21-year-old was a prolific scorer at HJK Helsinki in Finland and has undoubtedly benefited from having a summer break after joining Rangers.

He has already netted seven goals for Rangers and looks by far their most potent threat.

Partick Thistle have been hugely disappointing this term. They also started slowly last season and have to face Rangers again next week in the Betfred Cup.

No one is suggesting Rangers are the finished article, but they are improving and Pedro Caixinha's side can win at Firhill with the help of Morelos.

Recommendation
Rangers to win and A Morelos to score
1pt 15-8 Paddy Power
