Gerrard names his price for Alfredo Morelos


Rangers manager Steven Gerrard appears to have put a minimum £10M price tag on star striker Alfredo Morelos’ head after Bordeaux’s £3.75M was rejected as ‘disappointing’.

The 22-year old Colombian had another productive night in Slovenia, but the timing of the bid from France may have unsettled him a tad as he was wasn’t quite as his recent sparkling best, but Gerrard has asserted that it would take an astronomical bid for him and the club to be willing to sell “arguably our best player”.

He said:

“Something more than far more (than £3.75M).”

Naturally what that sum amounts to is slightly conjecture, but in this day and age of ridiculous fees, and after the club got burnt again on Josh Windass and Declan John, Gerrard has evidently put his foot down and stated exactly what he expects for his best players if suitors are to have any chance of signing them.

Speaking at his pre-Killie presser, he affirmed the importance of Rangers now demanding big bucks for their star assets, and given more ordinary players than Morelos have gone for far more, it is clear that after £3.75M was dismissed as ‘derisory’, the French giants are going to have double it and then some if they are to have any chance of clinching Morelos’ signature.
