Another article from me today, and this one is about Alfredo Morelos. If you are a Rangers fan, I suspect you are going to like this one.

I have been told reliably by a couple of sources that Alfredo Morelos wants to stay on at Rangers next season. While most expected the Colombian to leave for Lille at the start of this season, a deal with the French club could not be agreed after Rangers rejected a £16m bid from the Ligue 1 side.

At the time, Morelos looked unhappy, and it seemed that he would leave either the past January or at the end of this season. However, since then, the forward has been completely integrated back into the team. Despite the purchase of two forwards in Roofe and Itten (in anticipation of Morelos leaving), they have not settled in completely, especially the latter. Morelos has performed spectacularly throughout this campaign after the initial one month of non-performance in August.

Now, I was given the information that Alfredo Morelos is currently negotiating a new deal (his current one expires in 2023) with Ross Wilson. While that is still ongoing, and no matter how negotiations go, the forward wants to stay on at Rangers next season as he feels he has a ‘challenge of Champions League to complete with Rangers’.

I had reached out to Morelos’ representative about this bit of news on Sunday, but I am yet to get a response from him as of today afternoon.

So whether he signs a new contract or not, Morelos wants to stay on and lead the line for Rangers. That is great news for Rangers fans all over.
