Alfredo Morelos celebrates festive Colombian holiday in sweet family snap


Rangers star Alfredo Morelos and his young family brought the spirit of Christmas to their Glasgow apartment with some sweet family snaps.

The striker and his wife, Yesenia were celebrating their first Little Candles Day on December 7 with their baby girl.

The date is a public holiday in their native Colombia, called Día de las velitas, which marks the unofficial start of the festive season.

People display candles and paper lanterns wherever they can in honor of the Virgin Mary on the eve of the Immaculate Conception.

The Gers star shared pictures of their plush pad decked out for the occasion.

Wife Yesenia posted a snap of her lighting candles by their window, which boasts panoramic views over the River Clyde.

Yesenia wished for ‘peace, strength and joy’ among her 14,000 loyal online followers.

She wrote: “This year, don’t just light a candle.

“Pray for peace friendship and love.

“When we all do that, it makes for a better world.

“Today, on December 7, I light a candle.

“A candle, that lights up the hearts of all human beings.

“May it bring you love, peace, strength and joy.”

It comes after the Rangers striker was caught up in a Covid-19 debacle.

The Colombian national team is fighting against a new law in the country – which could put a Copa America homecoming in danger for Morelos and the rest of the squad.

We told how a ruling that forces any new arrivals into the South American country to present a negative test for the virus before being allowed to enter has become a hot topic across the land.

The ruling was initially shut down.

But a high-ranking judge in the capital of Bogota has reinstated the measure, which brought the ire of the country’s sports minister Ernesto Lucena.
