Whenever Ibrox Noise refers to Scott Arfield, Scott Wright or Allan McGregor, these guys are lovingly remembered by fans, certainly with affection, good wishes, all the support in the world.

When Ryan Kent is uttered, the response is ‘who cares about ex-players, move on ffs’. And pretty much the same seems to apply to Alfredo Morelos, in a sad end to the Colombian’s time at Ibrox, where he’s exited in absolute ignominy with very few fans caring about what happens to the once-popular and potentially legendary hitman.

Funnily enough, after all the years of exalting himself for the English Premier League, Morelos’ tragic and almost hilariously self-inflicted inability to find a new club has not taught him a thing, and he remains as self-centred as he always did, unable to praise the club but instead making it all about himself.

He said:

“I want to play in a good European league which my family would enjoy. I am looking forward to the new season, just as I did every single season when I was at Rangers. At Rangers, I had great years there and I am proud of how it went for me when I was there. My favourite memory was winning the league, but I was pleased with how I did in every season. Now it is just a case of waiting for a new opportunity elsewhere.”

Not an ounce of appreciation for the club and what we gave him, but instead just self-congratulation over how great he was for us and effectively kind of how lucky we were to have him.

Morelos will never grow up – he’s not a team player, he’s in things for himself, and instead of showing any grace and thanking the club or appreciate the opportunity for such a big platform, it’s all about Alfredo Morelos and how great he is.

We don’t even resent his self-centredness, it’s the way he is, but he will struggle to find a new club if he’s not interested in what he can offer the club, but instead is only outwardly interested in what he can get out of it.

No wonder we let him go.
