MICHAEL BEALE aimed a thinly-veiled dig at Alfredo Morelos as he lamented the lack of goals from his Rangers attack once again at Ibrox.

Todd Cantwell netted the only goal of the game to secure a narrow victory over Aberdeen and Rangers now have just four fixtures to go before they can bring the curtain down on another unsuccessful Premiership campaign.

Beale started with a forward line of Fashion Sakala, Rabbi Matondo and Ianis Hagi against the Dons and introduced Morelos off the bench as he made a raft of changes with 25-minutes remaining.

The Colombian is in the final weeks of his Rangers career and offered little as Beale was left bemused at the succession of chances that were squandered once again.

Beale said: “We had some good moments with the ball. Fashion and Rabi had a few good moments when they linked it and it should have become a goal.

“Sometimes I feel that we are the most wasteful team in the final third I have ever seen.

“The amount of chances we have and don’t take is incredible. We created unbelievable chances and didn't take them.

“We suddenly face two 80-yard dashes to our own goal. On another day we could find ourselves behind.

“In the first 15 minutes of the second half we missed more unbelievable chances and when we hit the bar I thought it wasn't going to be our day. 

“It is not unlucky when we are missing these chances as it has happened in every single day since I came back to the club.

“I think you saw a difference when Alfredo came on in terms of energy but not a positive difference as well. 

“I think we will need a focal point for the team because Antonio is not fit at the moment. Alfredo is obviously going to be moving on.  

“Fashion and Rabi gave us a different front line and it was also nice to see Ianis Hagi get some minutes. 

“Throughout the game we had some passages of good play but we have to be more decisive if we want to feel at ease at the end of the game.”
