Rangers star Alfredo Morelos’ wife shares supportive snap ahead of Braga tie

The wife of Rangers talisman Alfredo Morelos took to Instagram to pledge her support towards the off-form striker ahead of tonight's clash with Sporting Braga.

Morelos, who is suspended for tonight's clash, has been on a wretched run of form with Steven Gerrard's side falling 12 points behind leaders Celtic in the Scottish Premiership.

But there is hope in the Europa League after the Gers' emphatic comeback against Braga in the first-leg to win 3-2 last week, even without the Colombian.

Ahead of the game, Morelos' wife Yesenia took to the social media site to share a smitten snap of them cuddling up together.

She is currently pregnant with their first child and is an ever-present pillar of support, sometimes appearing at Ibrox in a Gers jersey.

Yesenia also took the time to respond to Rangers fans who mentioned her in Instagram stories.

One wrote: "Congratulations to you and Alfredo for the baby".

The message also featured two Great Britain flags, a nod to Ibrox's patriotism.

A fellow fan also said: "I support you and Alfredo 100% we are lucky to have you in Scotland."

She then thanked both in the message that she re-shared in an Instagram story.

Ahead of the game, Gerrard said his side will not hold out for a draw to go through.

He added: "We want to come here and carry a threat.

"If we've got the right game-plan and we carry it out to the best of our ability, then we can cause problems or create chances.

"Then, it is obviously over to individual players to go and execute."
