Journalist Jonny McFarlane has claimed that Alfredo Morelos’ time with Rangers will be one that likely ‘breaks down at the end of the season’.
As things stand, there is much doubt about the player’s future. Indeed, he has a contract that will expire next summer and talks have apparently stalled on that front.
On top of that, he has been out of favour in the team this season under manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst since being dropped ahead of their European clash with PSV Eindhoven due to various concerns over the striker’s fitness levels and attitude – though he was recalled for Wednesday night’s clash against Napoli.
Taking everything into account, while speaking about the player on The Rangers Review prior to their Champions League defeat, McFarlane admitted that while Morelos is one of Rangers’ best players, he isn’t ‘professional’ and that will likely cost him his career with the SPFL club.
He explained: “Alfredo Morelos is one Rangers’ best players. And the quicker they get him in [the team], the quicker they will see the benefits of getting him in. Morelos, we all know, is one of these guys that gets fit through playing games. It’s not professional, I don’t like it.
“And ultimately, I think it’s probably going to be a marriage that breaks down at the end of this season, Alfredo Morelos and Rangers. I hope not, but I think that’s probably going to be the case.”
