Rangers Great Backs This Star To Do Well In Premier League: He Has Done Enough Under Gerrard

A sports enthusiast in his mid-twenties who reads, breathes, as well as dreams (mostly) about football and attempts to share his views with the fanatics by jotting it down. Prefers to learn through extensive interaction, communication and exploration. So don't be in a quandary and SHOOT.

There’s not much going on in Scotland in terms of transfer stories, and the bizarre voting process several days back has originated chaos and controversy over SPFL’s transparency in deciding the season’s outcome. The game is suspended indefinitely in the wake of the global health concerns and the teams, including Rangers, are already assessing the transfer options for the upcoming term.

An unavoidable financial loss might reduce the players’ fee,s and the Gers might have to settle for a lesser amount for in-demand Alfredo Morelos. The free-scoring Colombian is drawing the attention of many, including a few Premier League outfits. He has now been backed by the Dutch great Ronald de Boer to do well in the top-flight English game from the next season onwards.

“I think he would do well in the Premier League because he’s a fighter. He is a bit crazy – there are not so many strikers who get so many red cards, but he’s a great player. He loves his goals, he’s a predator. I think he’s been a great signing for Rangers. He can do well and I can understand the clubs of the Premier League are interested in him.”

Revealed the 49-year-old (in an interview with talkSport) who was key to Rangers’ treble-winning campaign back in 2002-03.

Why He Has Done Enough At Rangers To Secure A Premier League Transfer

Morelos has fired in 29 times and laid on ten assists in 46 outings this term (stats via Transfermarket) despite a rough run since the winter break. His on-field temperament and disciplinary issues have invited pressure on his teammates time and again. However, the impact he had in the attacking third is irreplaceable irrespective of veteran Jermain Defoe’s presence high up the pitch.

Although he was a low key signing during Pedro Caixinha’s disastrous spell in charge, the 23-year-old flourished significantly under Steven Gerrard to emerge as one of the most prolific goalscorers in the squad. His pace, power and directness helped him find the net frequently both in the domestic as well as European contests.

While the standard and competitiveness of Premier League might trouble Morelos to settle in initially, the exquisite scoring record in Europa League must have convinced the English suitors to gamble on his composure in front of goal. Having said that, the player must learn to control his emotion and offer responsibility to attune to the demands of the English game.
