Rangers and Steven Gerrard could be close to yet another collision course after speculation mounted that Aston Villa will attempt to exploit Alfredo Morelos’ contract situation and get him on the cheap.

The Colombian’s contract negotiations have reportedly stalled with a sticking point or two, and this has alerted a host of PL sides, given, of course, he’s in the last year of his deal.

Many will point the fact Celtic’s Edouard was as well, plus he wanted to leave, and yet they still got around £20M for him.

But nevertheless, there appears to be no love lost between Rangers and Gerrard now, following a glut of incidents between the two parties, and the former Liverpool midfielder would almost certainly try to snap up Morelos on a low cost fee well below his theoretical £20M+ market value.

Which would only make him more popular with Rangers fans given his smears over Archer and how he won’t be selling except for big big numbers, just as he said during his time at Rangers, but will of course now attempt to hawk Morelos for a modest cost if he can.

We get it, his loyalties are to Villa these days, but he isn’t half burning his Rangers bridges with this nonsense.

If Morelos goes to Villa, which understandably the Colombian would favour, for anything notably sub-£10M, Rangers fans will absolutely loathe Gerrard for the majority.

And they wouldn’t be too fond of Rangers’ board for letting it happen either.

This is a developing story….

  1. I havent really seen any reports that villa trying to get him on the cheap ,however I would have thought it was the directors who decide how much they offer not gerry ,he is only the manager not money man .Like all other directors down there they think our league is mince and will offer as little as they can get away with knowing he is in last year of contract .It is up to rangers to tell them to do one, if this is the case and keep him for last year ,as we may be in CL or EUL where big cash can be made and his services invaluable .Win win ,I dont really see much point in constantly refering to gerry ,hes yesterdays news tbh ,but I do get he causes debate .

  2. As you say Gerard’s responsibility is now with Aston Villa and he will get the best deals he can for his club. If he was to get Morelos for under £10m then my anger would be directed at the hierarchy at Rangers for allowing it to happen. He should be politely told that our players are available at our new European prices not last seasons.
