Former Rangers star Michael Ball has told Football FanCast that Alfredo Morelos reminds him of Luis Suarez amid links away from the club.
Morelos has been in fine form again this season and has scored 11 goals in 25 Scottish Premiership games.
Rangers have galloped to the title and sit 23 points clear of second-placed Celtic following their latest Old Firm victory; they have yet to lose a fixture in the league this season.
Morelos has made it clear that he hoped to catch the eye of big clubs across Europe with his displays in the Europa League, per an interview with Colombian radio via The Daily Express, effectively admitting that he is open to a move away from the club.
In total, the Colombia international has scored 93 goals in 179 games for the club since his arrival from HJK Helsinki in 2017.
Ball thinks the forward could well leave the club, given the repeated links with an exit, and he has compared him with Liverpool icon Suarez insofar as his passion for the club can sometimes overwhelm him.
Speaking exclusively to FFC, he said: “I think there’s been talk about Morelos maybe for two or three years now about leaving Rangers for many reasons. His goalscoring is second to none but he’s got that South American bite to him.
“He reminds me of the Suarez situation where, one day he’s fantastic and the next he can let you down because the passion gets too much for him.
“Being part of Rangers, he’s got to know the club so well, he understands it and sometimes passion does get over him.”
