A YOUNG Rangers fan has thanked others for their support after Alfredo Morelos made his wishes come true.The Colombian striker carried delighted mascot Lucas Rae-Shreenan, 6, on to the pitch before scoring in the Light Blues' 5-0 win over Hearts yesterday.

Gers-daft Lucas, 6, has spent a large part of his life in hospital.

But his day was made as he was led out by Morelos before watching his heroes put five past the Jambos at Ibrox without reply.

Light Blues fans hailed the youngster after his mum Mel posted a video of the heartwarming moment on Twitter, which has since been viewed more than 80,000 times.

Now, in a new clip, Lucas can be seen sitting in his Rangers-themed hospital bed, saying: "Thanks everybody for the comments, I had a great day yesterday."

After Morelos' opener yesterday, Ryan Kent doubled Gers' lead before a Christophe Berra own goal put the game beyond doubt.

Substitute Greg Stewart then netted a five-minute double to keep the pressure on Neil Lennon's Hoops at the top.

Lucas previously went viral in September after meeting hero Ryan Jack through the John O'Byrne foundation.

Had the best surprise ever for my wee pal Lucas who spends alot of time in hospital,hes a huge ryan jack fan so he got the shock of his life today when we arranged for him to meet jacko#dreamsdocometrue

The youngster met up with the Gers midfielder and was given a Gers jersey with his name and number eight on the back.

And speaking after the match, Mel revealed her son was left in tears after Jack was named on the bench and unable to walk him onto the park.

She said: "Lucas was crying because Ryan couldn't take him out. Ryan asked Alfredo to do it and he come into the tunnel just took Lucas out my arms and cuddled him and he stopped crying and had a big smile on his face."

Fans also raised thousands for Lucas during a recent bucket collection at Ibrox during the 2-0 win over Porto.

Pollen count is oddly high at this time of year...

Seriously if we aren't looking into ways of moving our club into the Premier League, then what are we really playing at!? We've known since day dot that Alfie wants to play there. We should be moving heaven and earth to make it happen imo.
