Former Glasgow Rangers cult hero Daniel Candeias has urged Alfredo Morelos to leave Ibrox this summer.
The Verdict: Morelos linked with move
Morelos, who is currently at the Copa America with Colombia, has been heavily linked with a move to Porto this summer.
The Latest: Candeias urges move
Speaking about Morelos’ future, Candeias urged him to depart the 55-time Scottish champions. He said (via The Scottish Sun):
“He loves Rangers and it’s a fantastic club, but after four years I think he’s done his job. He will always be an idol.
“I think he wants to prove to himself he can now compete and shine at another club.
“Porto is ideal for him as there are so many attractions.
“They have direct access to the Champions League and there are the other Colombians in the squad. I think it will also help him play for the national team.
“I see a change in motivation. I’ve been getting involved with him, telling him that I’m waiting to see him at Porto.”
The Verdict: Time to go?
Morelos has been an inspired signing for the Gers ever since he made the move to Glasgow in 2017. In 182 games for the club, he has found the net 94 times (Transfermarkt), and he has often been the man to whom his manager Steven Gerrard and his teammates have looked to lead them to victory.
Will Morelos be at Rangers next season?
However, as Candeias says, his work at Ibrox may be done. Last season, the Gers won the Premiership for the first time in 10 years – it will be hard for Morelos to ever top that if he stays at Rangers. Porto would provide a logical next step in his career.
In other news, this Rangers man has received a four-game ban.
