There’s something else about Alfredo’s new deal…


As we’re covering today, Alfredo Morelos committed quill to parchment yet again to extend his theoretical deal at Ibrox to 2023, with the obviousness of his sale this summer fresh on the horizon.

We’ve praised him for signing this deal, giving the club back something after we gave him so much, and the club for preparing for the inevitable, presumably by way of a kitty-securing release clause which we’d imagine to be in the £15M and above range.

However, there’s something else Rangers have undeniably guaranteed – and we only need say the name of Virgil Van Dijk for wily readers to know what we babble on about.

Yes, for any asset like a Morelos or Van Dijk, a sell-on clause becomes critical for a club like Rangers or indeed Celtic.

Celtic included one extremely wisely for Van Dijk, and when the Dutch colossus moved on from his initial English team Southampton for a world record £75M for a defender (which, ridiculously, is starting to look like a genuine bargain) Celtic got a big chunk (£7.5M) of that cash.

This is not to say Morelos’ new club, whoever they may be, will be able to sell him on for money in that region (although who knows), but Rangers know if the Colombian does the business at his next club, he will become as valuable as any other prolific hitman and Rangers should get a healthy slice of any gigantic transfer fee he generates.

It’s al ifs and buts and maybes, of course, but the fact of the matter is that this new deal, coming only months after the last one, has been signed with the current increasing interest in the striker in mind.

With Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig and Leicester (more on that later) among those credited with interest in the forward, and Stewart Robertson confirming the price Rangers want, his departure is now 99% sure.

The preparation, therefore, has been done to protect Rangers and get the most financial reward out of this situation as is possible.

And both the club and Morelos have done their part in ensuring that happens.


  1. Totally agree he will be sold in summer, and agree it is good business from rangers ensuring big money 👍

  2. Police scotland reckon it was Tim board that burgled Brendans hoose…..they left the biscuit tin unopened

  3. Just have to point out that the sell on clause you talk about can only be inserted into the contract we (the selling club) agree with the buying club. Has nothing to do with the contract agreed with the player.

  4. 20.million after tonight wouldn't give you 20 pound for any the rangers forwards absolute disgrace the sitters that have bin missed . Looks like we won't even get one point the way things are going . Pig sick .

  5. Good Bit of Business
    Paid : £1m
    Sold : £15-£20m

    And Depending on the Club he goes to, Rather than get £20m for Him, I'd rather we get £14-16m and a Half Decent Striker in a Cash/Swap Deal

  6. I'm not going to lie I will sad to see morelos go but we are Rangers we are bigger than any player. If we had to sell any of our top players though o would rather it be tav. He's good going forward. Sometimes his first touch is a bit wayward though and he always gets caught out at the back. No wonder McGregor was screaming at him on tonight's game. Many times is he going to show a guy the inside. You always n I mean always show him down the line. They have no option but to go for a cross then which is upto your gk and cbs to deal with. He always let's his man run off him aswell. How many times has his being out of position cost us goals?. Think it's time for a new captain and possibly a new right back. Just my opinion.
