Well thank you very much Alfredo Morelos.
You came back from the summer break unacceptably overweight, have clear attitude and fitness issues, and you’ve forced Giovanni van Bronckhorst to completely drop you from the squad tomorrow night.
The squad no longer supports Morelos, and more crucially, the manager doesn’t either.
So thank you for completely overshadowing tomorrow’s titanic clash with PSV, one we were already needing 100% focus for (and already didn’t have thanks to the Hibs match taking place at all), and giving us something else to get distracted by.
Morelos’ lack of professionalism on his return from summer has been a disgrace, clearly carrying extra junk and sporting a nonsense haircut.
The fact Rangers’ squad endorses this move is pretty indicting for Morelos’ future at the club, and the fact it’s happened on the eve of such a huge match more so.
Look guys, this is a potentially £60M+ match – this is second only to the PL play off final in the Championship for the amount of value a single 90 minutes is worth.
It also has the massive prize of a UCL place up for grabs.
And here we are sitting about talking about Morelos and his future.
It is the last thing we need right now, but we will add this – Rangers have also not covered themselves in glory by letting this information leak out. This could have been dismissed as an injury, but the club has made a big circus of the reasons for his omission and that’s hardly helping either.
All in all, for us to win tomorrow night would now be the biggest European night in Rangers’ history, bar 72 and Elland Road.
