Rangers have been handed a major transfer boost after Crystal Palace confirmed their summer business is done following the retention of Wilfried Zaha.
Having become overwhelming favourites to sign Alfredo Morelos before the end of deadline day, holding onto Zaha has apparently altered the need to bring in a new striker, and following weeks of links to Palace, Morelos knows they, at least, definitely will not be making an eleventh hour to sign him before 5PM.
West Brom are also said to be in the hunt but it is as yet unclear just how serious their interest is, and despite all the toing and froing of various interested parties, Morelos remains at Ibrox.
Rangers of course play in the UEL tonight, and Morelos’ place in the team is clearly an issue of much debate – should he be absent from the match day squad, it certainly casts doubt on his position at the club – while his playing, even from the bench, further enhances the notion he’s remaining.
But chiefs at Crystal Palace have, for their part at least, confirmed their business is done and Morelos will not be going to London.
