Colin Stein Believes Rangers Could Command Big-Money For 21-Year-Old

Former Rangers player Colin Stein believes the Gers are in a position to command a significant sum, should they decide to cash in on Alfredo Morelos during the summer transfer window. The Colombia marksman was one of the fix foreign imports brought by ex-boss Pedro Caixinha, who had planned to close the gap on perennial champions Celtic.

Whilst the likes of Carlos Pena, Eduardo Herrera, and Fabio Cardoso have failed to hit the heights at the Ibrox Stadium, Morelos’ performances have been a particular delight, and this recently earned a new contract at the club. Speaking to the Glasgow Evening Times, Stein believes that the 21-year-old has become a key player in the Gers’ ranks, and fancies the club commanding a big fee for a future sale.

He said: “If they had sold him [Morelos] and then they lost [Jason] Cummings or [Kenny] Miller, they wouldn’t have a striker. I don’t know if he will go in the summer, we will just have to wait and see. If you are a striker that is scoring goals then you will be wanted all over. Anyone that can get 20, 25 goals a season will be in demand and you will command big money.”

Morelos joined Rangers from HJK Helsinki during last summer’s transfer window for an undisclosed package, and he has since gone onto score 17 goals in 33 games across all competitions. His showing supposedly rivals the very best forwards in the Scottish top-flight, and the Gers will be delighted by the fact that they committed him to a new three-and-a-half year contract this month.

Rangers had done splendidly under interim boss Graeme Murty to come within six points off champions Celtic, but the 3-2 defeat in the Old Firm derby last weekend has surely ended their chances of ending the dominance of their cross-town rivals.
