They say that there is a fine line between genius and madness, and no player encapsulates that more than Alfredo Morelos.
The Rangers striker is without question one of the most talented players in the Scottish Premiership, spearheading Steven Gerrard’s side that will comfortably finish second in the table largely down to the Colombian’s 17 goals and eight assists in the league this season, but with all these contributions in front of goal comes eight yellow cards and four red cards.
Morelos’ disciplinary record has been the centre of much attention, with some fans thinking that the striker might be better off away from Scotland if this unwanted record continues into next season, and according to the player himself, he won’t be short of suitors.
Speaking to Primer Tiempo via Football Scotland, Morelos has revealed he has significant interest from clubs heading into the summer transfer window, saying: “There is a lot of speculation about my possible departure, but there is nothing concrete yet.
“I know that there are many interested clubs asking and as soon as there is something official I will be announcing it.”
Rangers could be in for a big payday if they decide to cash in on their troublesome attacker, but even if a massive bid comes in for Morelos, who is valued at £2.7 million on Transfermarkt, Gerrard must do all he can to keep hold of his star striker.
Morelos’ yellow and red card record is something to behold, but what the striker offers in terms of goals and assists is something Rangers will find hard to replace, and although a big fee will be tempting, the club simply can’t let go of their most important player if they are to challenge with Celtic next season.
Rangers fans, should the club keep hold of Morelos at all costs? Let us know!
