Rangers Reject £7.5m Bid For Colombian Star: Why Murty Needs To Stay Strong On His Resolve?

Rangers have reportedly turned down an improved offer from Chinese Super League side Beijing Renhe for forward Alfredo Morales. According to a reliable report in the English media, the Teddy Bears are reluctant to let the striker leave on deadline day with limited time left to find a replacement. The Scottish Premiership giants have reportedly rejected an increased offer from the Chinese Super League side for their Colombian forward. Some sources have claimed that Graeme Murty’s side has turned down an official offer worth up to £7.5m for the striker.

It is believed that the Glaswegian side are reluctant to part ways with their prized asset as “it could compromise their ambitions in the second half of the season”. The 21-year-old is currently leading the goalscoring charts with 11 league goals to his name and is ahead of the likes of Leigh Griffiths, Kris Boyd and Scott Sinclair in the race for the golden boot in the top tier of Scottish football. 

The Ibrox-based outfit could use the money generated from the potential sale of Morelos to try and strengthen other areas of their squad but it would be increasingly difficult with just hours left in the current transfer period. Although, if the South American does end up leaving the Glaswegians today, his goalscoring will definitely be a big miss in their quest to bridge the gap between themselves and arch rivals Celtic, who are currently leading the Scottish Premiership by 8 points going into the second half of the campaign.

Rangers are currently in second place in the Scottish Premiership table with a tally of 46 points after 24 league matches with only goal difference separating them from third-placed Aberdeen. The Teddy Bears have scored 45 league goals so far with 11 of them coming from their Colombian star forward. The potential loss of Morelos’ services could be detrimental to their season and might hamper their chances of finishing close to the Hoops at the top of the league table. 

The South American striker has found the back of the net 13 times and made 2 assists in 27 matches for the Gers in all competitions in this campaign. Murty could look to retain him for now as he has the capability to consolidate a second-place finish for Rangers at the end of this campaign.

It remains to be seen what lies ahead in the future of the 21-year-old youngster and if the Blue Noses decide to part ways with him before the transfer window closes at the end of today.
