It’s the defining question of our time but is Alfredo Morelos actually better than Henrik Larsson. That’s the question posed by SunSport this week after The Rangers got a credible draw against Feyenoord.
Ever since Henrik graced our game with his world class abilities there has been so many envious detractors trying to gain parity when it comes to the Swedish legends exploits.
Stats can be an incredible powerful tool but it can also be weaponised by the gutter press to create a story or narrative which suits a particular agenda.
After Thursday’s Europa games, The Sun sent out this image.

So Alfredo, including lots of qualifiers has just out scored Henrik Larsson’s best European season. Wow.
The fact that someone felt the need to make this image and has been sitting patiently with their Henrik Larsson stats to try and make a point is as pathetic as the comparison between the two.
I’d take Henrik Larsson right now over yer man at Ibrox.
