Kris Boyd is in the press claiming Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos’ time is up. And while we’ve had our disagreements with the former Ibrox hitman in the past, it’s hard to disagree with this.

Morelos has 5 goals and 2 assists in 17, which is into ‘mediocre’ territory, not much better than Lyndon Dykes’ rather modest record in the Championship, and inferior by a distance to both team mate Antonio Colak, and Hearts’ Lawrence Shankland.

This has nothing to with ‘give him a chance’ any more – he came back from injury in pre-season, and sure, maybe needed a month or two to get up to speed, but here we are in January and he’s still garbage.

We were called out for labelling him a ‘waster’ by one user recently, with the claim made that this was deeply unfair and he should be fondly remembered for what he did in the past. Unfortunately, his past is irrelevant today – Ryan Kent’s illustrious past isn’t used by fans as a reason to praise him, and Morelos’ shouldn’t either.

The here and now is what counts, and Morelos missed two open goals in the Champions League, and two on Monday.

His head is miles away from where it should be, and he clearly wants to move. He’s lost a tonne of pace and gained a tonne of weight.

The reality though? No one is in for him. We received word on Ibrox Noise that he, and aforementioned Kent, had changed their minds about potentially winding down their contracts – that both looked like they might sign after all.

But this is the simple law of supply and demand, and the reality that Morelos especially has been so poor the past 6+ months that no one is interested in talking to him.

But this IS where his ‘illustrious’ past could get everyone what they want – the notion a club will look at his past displays and stats and believe with renewed focus they’ll get his old form back. But he will never be a clinical finisher so that’s almost certainly what holds him back from making the top of the game.

But yes, when it comes to the mood around Alfredo Morelos, his performances, fan favour and the amount he’s supposed to be wanting (we can’t verify it) he is very much a busted flush and his exit cannot come soon enough.

Even die hard el-bufalo fanatics have rather iced up their affections for him, considering it’s maybe finally time for him to move on. But when we consider he’s been at Ibrox for almost 6 years, it’s not surprising many have kind of had enough. Including himself.

Morelos is a top-class striker when in form, in the zone, and in the mood – even if his finishing is rather poor.

But he’s not any of the former at the moment and hasn’t been for a long time.

Maybe it is time for a divorce indeed.

  1. This is an interesting piece IN on Monday I was calling for his head and correctly as you say he’s well off the pace both physically and mentally , fat slow and not at it. Its a pity for the club as we tried to get him where he aspired to be he just didn’t come along with the club to get there. There is a player in there he’s just not connected to that part anymore. I’m not sure who would have him him possibly abroad somewhere. Pity.

  2. Yes another wage thief that needs to go fkn rank rotten hes done and a lard arse,big body squad comes to mind,
    Another one thats holding our glorious club back
