The world’s worst-kept secret is ‘out’ after a journalist announced to the world that wantaway Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos is no longer part of Michael Beale’s plans and he’s ‘gone’.
Kenny MacIntyre, who is said to be a Rangers fan (we can’t confirm that) himself, revealed on BBC’s Sportsound that he’s been given information that Morelos is done at Ibrox, which comes as no surprise to any regular reader of Ibrox Noise.
Morelos is 100% leaving this summer, with a pick of clubs currying for his signature as a Bosman, and MacIntyre took to the airwaves to take the story one step further:
Echoes of Joe Aribo last summer, when Rangers wanted to enter negotiations but they were unproductive and the Nigeria international wasn’t interested. Well the club has tried to make some headway with Morelos but he’s not interested and wants his move.
And in truth, most sensible fans want the same thing, even if a sizeable chunk think he’s still an immense striker.
Which he used to be. Hunger, pace, power – just some of the attributes well gone from his game as he winds up his Rangers career and prepares for a new life in another country, possibly England if the sources are right about six Premier League teams vying for his signature.
He’ll get all of his game back in a new league, because Rangers have already seen the best Morelos we’re going to see. It was probably during that sensational Europa League season when he was top scorer in the group stage. £120M we said on Ibrox Noise!
Now he leaves for nothing. And the telling part is MacIntyre’s claim hints he will not start tomorrow either with Michael Beale said to be moving on in terms of the Colombian no longer being part of his plans.
If he starts tomorrow that will be interesting. Even more so if he doesn’t and even more if Rangers go on to win at Parkhead without him…
