There hasn’t been an awful lot to shout about for the Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern this season, though it does look as if Pedro Caixinha could have turned a corner at Ibrox right now. Having never won three games in a row under the Portuguese, the upcoming League Cup semi-final fixture with Motherwell provides the perfect chance with which to do so.
However, while the local Light Blues who prop up our bar are starting to dream about making it to the final at Hampden Park in November, reports emanating out of Football Insider have seriously concerned those who prop up our bar. As you can imagine, a bit of unwelcome transfer news has seriously rocked our resident Gers.
According to their report, Aston Villa scouts were in attendance as they reportedly run the rule over Ibrox sensation, Alfredo Morelos. The Colombian has made a stunning start to life in Glasgow after joining from Helsinki during the summer, already bagging eight goals in 13 games for the SPFL giants.
A popular figure amongst the Rangers fans in our bar, losing him to an English side so quickly would be gutting for the club, who are reportedly braced for bids in the January market. Still, Rangers aren’t thought to want to lose their star man so quickly.
Morelos is clearly a talent and keeping him away from the mega-rich English sides may prove impossible in the long-run, losing him after only a few months would be an absolute killer for Rangers.
