While the jury is still out in regards to Pedro Caixinha’s major overhaul at Rangers over the course of the summer, there has been one major success. Indeed, our local Light Blues simply cannot stop signing him name.
Alfredo Morelos has taken to life in Scotland like a duck to water since signing from Helsinki over the course of the summer, bagging eight goals in 13 games thus far. A cult-hero in the making, our resident Gers who prop the bar up are in love with the Colombian marksman.
Which is why reports from Football Insider suggesting Aston Villa had scouted the 21-year-old in action against St. Johnstone on Friday have seriously concerned the punters who frequent in their droves. Having only just signed the forward, losing him as soon as January would be a punch in the gut.
As you can imagine, such talk has not gone down well amongst the Rangers fans in our bar, as well as those on Twitter. With that in mind, here’s a look at how some of them reacted on social media.
We have been under payed too often for good young talent McKay being the most recent.. I'd want top dollar but hopefully he stays.

I'm sick of players getting sold cheep to English clubs, I would slap a 25 million price tag and no budge

The fact that Morelos going to Villa is as ridiculous as Dembélé going to Chelsea says it all.
If Aston villa want @morelos2106 . Rangers should ask 20 million. And if they refuse to pay that. Then he won't go anywhere. Simple as that.
