Ex Rangers Player Talks About Star Striker’s Future After He Rejected £30m Contract: What Now For Gerrard?

Alfredo Morelos has once again started his season brightly with Rangers, and it was a significant success for Gerrard that he was able to keep his star striker for another window. There is a sense of inevitability that given the Colombian forward’s prowess, he will move on to bigger and better things in the future.

Hutton on Morelos’ future

Former Rangers defender Alan Hutton believes that Morelos wants to prove himself in tougher leagues and a move to the Premier League could be on the cards. Speaking to Football Insider Hutton said, ”Maybe (On whether he was surprised that Morelos stayed at Rangers this summer), it depends on what teams are interested in you. Do you really want to go away to wherever China or wherever it is?

He’s a young guy, he wants to prove himself here in the Premier League, and in Britain, if the right opportunity came up, he would have to look at it seriously. I think definitely for this season, he is in the best place to improve as a player.”

Morelos stock might have taken a hit this summer after he ended the last season with suspension which saw him miss few games in the end. Moreover, his stupid act in the clash against Celtic might have deterred prospective buyers because of his temperamental issues.

What now for Gerrard?

Nevertheless, Morelos still attracted significant interest from China and Sky Sports reported that Hebei China Fortune were willing to pay £15million-plus for Morelos in the summer and offered a £30million contract to him. However, it was knocked back, and that shows the Colombian is willing to test himself out in some of the top divisions.

The striker had previously insisted that a move to the English top-flight will be his dream. Morelos’ antics from last season probably ended up being a blessing in disguise for Rangers in the summer as none of the top league clubs made any concrete offer for him.

Gerrard will hope that the striker will deliver the title for him this season before he sets his eyes for somewhere else. Rangers have done well by giving him an improved contract, and the Colombian has never downed his tools to push for a move away. A good season with no red cards would give Rangers a chance to earn the right price for Morelos. Gerrard would hope that he can sanction a multi-million-pound deal if the day arrives when the forwards decide to leave Ibrox.
