Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern will be delighted with what Steven Gerrard has already achieved since he arrived at Ibrox this summer, and will be pleased that he has announced his plans for one of his star forwards.
There have been constant rumours that Alfredo Morelos could be on his way out of the Scottish side after just one season at the club, yet the new manager has stated that he will not be letting him move, highlighting his love for the Colombian ace.
When conducting an interview with Radio Clyde about the possibility of losing the 21-year-old to a big money move to either China or Turkey, Gerrard remained confident that he could keep him at Ibrox, stating: ‘We love the player. The fans love the player. He’s a goal scorer. We know what he can add to this team and squad.
‘If you’re asking me if his head has been turned that’s a question you’d have to ask the player himself. But where we stand right now he’s a Rangers player and I’m delighted to have him.’
And these comments are sure to thrill our resident Rangers supporters, with it clear that if they are to bridge the gap to Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic this term, they will need to retain the 21-year-old this summer.
Landlord’s Verdict: The Rangers fans in the Tavern will be delighted with the comments that Gerrard has made regarding their Colombian striker.
The 21-year-old has already become a fan favourite for the locals in the bar, and the Light Blues will be hoping to keep him for as long as possible, despite the interest of a big money move abroad.
