Rangers: Andy Walker slams Alfredo Morelos amid lack of ‘professionalism’

|

Andy Walker, sometimes seen on Sky Sports, has been left fuming by Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos’ discipline this season.

The Colombian frontman was recently pictured back in his home country enjoying a cocktail on a sunlounger which was criticised by former SPFL striker Tam McManus who urged the club to get rid of the centre-forward. 

It wasn’t the first time Morelos landed himself in hot water this season having been omitted from the Gers squad to take on PSV in their pivotal Champions League qualifier back in August.

The 26-year-old had been sent off the weekend prior and was left at home due to concerns over his fitness as well as disciplinary issues with former Celtic man Peter Grant labelling the debacle as ‘soul-destroying‘ for his manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst.

Morelos has scored 68 Scottish Premiership goals for the Light Blues but with his contract up in the summer his time at Ibrox looks set to end on a sour note.

Speaking on the GO Radio Football Show Walker said: 

“I think the lack of professionalism from Morelos, I think it’s been awful. I think he’s let his manager down. I think he’s let his teammates down. 

“This is a guy who was a top-class player when you look at his condition when he was in top form scoring goals every week in the top flight of Scottish football, scoring goals in practically every European occasion and attracting a lot of interest from other clubs.”

TIF Thoughts on Walker’s comments…

Should Rangers sell Morelos in January?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Morelos has only started once in the league this season with that coming in the side’s final fixture before the mid-season break.

Journalist Stephen McGowan has previously speculated that the player looks overweight which is likely another factor behind his drop-off in form and troubles behind the scenes.

The 11-cap Colombia sharpshooter has scored just three times this term and it looks like he could well be on his way out the door in the coming months.

We feel that if Rangers receive any sort of offer in January they should be open to accepting rather than losing what has been a terrific player, on his day, for nothing.
