Rangers: Gio van Bronckhorst set for Alfredo Morelos talks

An update has emerged on Glasgow Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos and his situation at Ibrox… 

What’s the talk?

Gio van Bronckhorst has revealed that he is set for talks with the Colombia international to discuss his situation at the club.

He told the Scotsman: “In terms of Alfredo, he worked hard this week. We will sit down this week and speak about him and his future, but as I said before, he is still our player, he knows what he has to do to become available for matches again. In this first week, the reaction that he has shown has been very positive.”

This comes after he was outcasted from the squad for the second leg of their Champions League clash with PSV, which they won courtesy of a goal from his replacement Antonio Colak.

Cash in on him

Van Bronckhorst must wield his axe and brutally cash in on the centre-forward before the end of the window as he is a liability to the squad.

The manager has claimed that Morelos has put the work in to force his way back into contention this week but this is not a one-off issue for the attacker.

Will Morelos stay?

Yes

Yes

No

No

He has displayed worrying behaviour when it comes to professionalism and being easy for those in charge of the club to work with.

The Athletic have claimed that former director Mark Allen wanted to sell him after an incident with Carlos Pena that involved the pair buying beer, whilst some of Steven Gerrard’s coaching staff were open to replacing him after the current Villa boss omitted him from a squad for returning to Glasgow late.

He was reportedly fined by Gerrard on a number of occasions for being late and this issue cropped up again recently as he failed to arrive on time for a recovery session earlier this month.

It has been noted that he has been “hard work” for the coaching staff throughout his career at Rangers and Jordan Campbell claimed in his piece on the striker that a ruthless club would have sold him by now.

Chris Sutton described his behaviour as “unacceptable” this week and the form of Antonio Colak could allow van Bronckhorst to cash in on the £33k-per-week liability.

The Croatia international has scored seven goals in nine games and is showing that he can lead the line and be the main man for the Gers.

This could allow the club to sell Morelos in the coming days without worrying about being left without a reliable goalscorer at the top end of the pitch.

Therefore, van Bronckhorst must now push Ross Wilson to offer the centre-forward out in the final days of the window, so that his squad does not suffer any more disruptions throughout the rest of the campaign.
