Alfredo Morelos has once again reiterated his desire to leave Rangers, while insisting he remains happy to continue at Ibrox for now.
The 21-year old hitman has been a revelation in Scotland, causing all manner of foaming at the gills from rival supporters, but it is inevitable he will be leaving at the end of the season, unless Chinese cracks Beijing Renhe offer the asking price of £11M+ before the end of their transfer window.
For his part the Colombian has stated that while he is happy enough in Scotland for now, he sees himself in England before long, admitting the idea of an English Premier League side looking at him is ‘exciting’:
“If a team in England showed serious interest in me, it would be very exciting. I play in a country very close to the English Premier League and I think that many teams are watching me.”
In fairness to Morelos he’s never denied he sees his future away from Rangers, and that honesty is admirable enough, but equally he’s rather hawking himself off to clubs down south without really expressing much affection or indeed courtesy for Rangers and that to us smacks of slight ingratitude and indeed disrespect. Rarely if at all has Morelos really praised the club in any way, saying only that he’s ‘happy’.
As far as we are concerned, as long as he keeps scoring and doing his best for our club, he can leave for a colossal profit at the end of the season with our blessings and quite honestly that’ll be it for us.
