Rangers Flirting With Idea Of Extending 21 Y/O’s Glasgow Stay: How Will It Effect Murty’s Squad?

After quite a good run of form in the Scottish Premiership, Rangers were defeated at their own backyard by Hibernian last weekend. They are now placed at the 3rd spot in the league table with 46 points to their name after 25 games and are trailing table-toppers, Celtic, have a substantial margin of 14 points. One of the aspects that Rangers need to check is that they don’t lose out on the services of their key players and apparently, they have taken one such move.

As per one of the latest reports by The Times, Rangers are perceived to be desirous to hand an improved contract to their striker, Alfredo Morelos. The Gers do rate him very highly and are reluctant to lose out on his services anytime soon. The report also states that the Glasgow-based outfit had rejected a bid of £8million from Beijing Renhe last month. It goes without saying that Rangers are keen to ensure his stay at the Ibrox Stadium for a long time.

Morelos has scored 11 goals from 23 appearances in the Scottish Premiership so far this season and also found the back of the net on a couple of occasions from 3 appearances in the Scottish League Cup. The Columbian hitman emerged through the youth ranks of Independiente Medellin and was elevated to their senior side. After a loan spell with HJK, he was signed permanently by the Finnish outfit before moving to the ranks of Rangers in the summer.

The 21-year-old has been quite a regular candidate in the starting line-up of the Light Blues and has been quite decent for them in terms of his goal-scoring output. Morelos has the raw pace required to gallop past defenders with relative ease and his strong physicality enables him to hold the ball well in the final third. Under the stewardship of Graeme Murty, he has really made his presence felt and no wonder why Murty is keen to do everything to keep him under his command.

 Morelos has proven himself to be a regular goal scorer and given that Murty has a dearth of strikers in his ranks, he must leave no stone unturned to urge Morelos to sign the new deal. He might be still far from being a complete article but he is still young and has the time to develop. Besides, he has acclimatised himself with Scottish football and could be a massive player for his current employers in the coming seasons.
