Rangers: Journalist makes exciting claim on Morelos

Image for Rangers: Journalist makes exciting claim on Morelos

Journalist Mark Guidi has claimed that Alfredo Morelos has really enjoyed working under Giovanni van Bronkhorst at Rangers since his arrival.

Morelos was one of the main men for Rangers last season until he got injured whilst on international duty with Colombia which meant that he missed the last stretch of the season, missing out on important games such as the Europa League final and the Premiership run-in.

The 26-year-old forward featured 42 times in all competitions for Rangers last term, netting 19 times and chipping in with eight assists, but he has just one year remaining on his current contract with the club, so Van Bronckhorst might attempt to tie him down to a new deal or cash in on him this summer.

There have been rumours that Morelos might be leaving Rangers ahead of the new campaign, but whilst speaking on The Go Radio Football Show, Guidi has claimed that the forward has really enjoyed playing under Van Bronckhorst and could be tempted to stay with the opportunity of playing in the Champions League possible, as the Dutchman claimed the striker could return ‘in the coming weeks‘.

Guidi said: “I do know that Alfredo Morelos has really enjoyed working under Giovanni van Bronckhorst and Roy Makaay. Roy Makaay speaks Spanish, so does Giovanni, so right away there’s bonding there. It’s a chance for Alfredo Morelos possibly to go and play in the Champions League if Rangers can get through these qualifiers.

“Going by what Giovanni says as well, if Rangers can get past Union SG in the next couple of weeks, then Morelos should be available for the final play-off round.”

Do you think Morelos will stay at Rangers?





TIF Thoughts on Guidi’s comments…

Rangers have already lost Joe Aribo and Calvin Bassey in this summer’s transfer window, so Van Bronckhorst might not be keen to let another one of his main players leave, but if Morelos does not sign a new deal, the sensible option will surely be to cash in on him rather than see him leave for free next summer.

It would be ideal for Rangers to tie Morelos down to a new deal as it if he did want to leave in the future, it may be more likely they could get some money for him, but whether or not they qualify for the Champions League plays a part in his decision remains to be seen.
