It is no secret that Alfredo Morelos had been attracting plenty of clubs with his impressive displays for Rangers this season.
The Colombia international, despite his rather poor disciplinary record, has been in red-hot form for the Light Blues, having netted 16 times in his 24 Scottish Premiership appearances so far.
Rangers were desperate to keep hold of him and will want the 22-year-old to remain at Ibrox for as long as possible, especially after the player has admitted plenty of offers came in for him in January.
Speaking to Colombian TV outlet Caracol on their Gol programme, Morelos said: “I had proposals from Italy, Spain, France and England, but he told me that I will stay and I want to take the opportunity to continue growing under the leadership of a legend like Gerrard.”
The striker had been making the comments after he was asked about Carlos Queiroz’s recent appointment as the new Colombia manager and his chances of making a return to the National Team in a more prominent role.
It will not come as a surprise to hear that Morelos had a number of offers to leave Rangers in January coming from all across Europe.
However, the club still managed to keep hold of their £2.7million-rated ace, as per Transfermarkt, and his comments about wanting to grow under Gerrard could be a great sign that he is happy to remain at Ibrox for the foreseeable future.
However, if he continues to produce the types of performances he has displayed so far this season, keeping him at the Light Blues beyond the summer could be too big of a challenge for the Scottish Premiership outfit.
