There’s a lot of talk at the moment about Alfredo Morelos, and to a lesser extent Antonio Colak.
Colak isn’t getting many minutes at Parma, but shines when he does, and Morelos is having a literal ‘mare at Santos, with his debut a 3-0 loss, then dumped completely for their second match following the manager getting fired.
It’s also been reported that Santos have confirmed he can leave for free if they get relegated, which looks the case already.
Is it enough yet to say that Michael Beale’s decisions, and Morelos’ own as well, have not helped either of them?
No one has ended up happy from all of this, and Morelos’ exit note was probably the most genuinely sincere message of camaraderie the Colombian has ever affected Rangers with, the first time he’s actually shown true love for our club and our fans. Grass is very much not greener.
Colak? When he gets any time to play he scores, simple as that – his last goal was an absolute wordie, albeit in Italy’s second tier.
He never for even one moment wanted to leave Rangers and was excited for the new season and being fit.
But then Michael Beale made it clear that he wasn’t favouring him, and he should leave. Then Dessers came in to rub insult to injury.
What are we getting at?
We’re not sure. Neither Alfredo Morelos nor Antonio Colak’s Rangers stories seem to be over. Morelos’ Rangers’ race was run, but with what a disaster his career has been since leaving, we do wonder if he wants back. We know he’d be a better prospect than any of the rubbish Beale signed up front.
As for Colak, we’d love him back too – regulars to Ibrox Noise know we rate the Croat hugely, and we know fine well he’d love to come back to Rangers. He’s a goal machine.
But it won’t be happening under Michael Beale, nor would we want it to. Nothing good can happen under this ‘manager’.
