Rangers head coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst is hopeful striker Alfredo Morelos will sign a new deal with the club. The Colombian has entered into the final year of his contract and although there has been interest from around Europe, no offers have been made. The striker has not played since April after undergoing surgery for a thigh injury he suffered while on international duty.
“Alfredo is very positive about a new contract. We are doing our very best to get a new deal agreed with Morelos and we hope to have that sorted out in the coming weeks,” Giovanni van Bronckhorst said about Alfredo Morelos. “He’s sharper and sharper. We’re monitoring his development over the next couple of weeks. When he’s fit, he is one option for me. Up front as well we all know his qualities. I’d rather have him back. He has been working very hard.”
“It has been every single transfer window since he has arrived that he is basically going to leave. There will be a day that he does,” Kris Boyd said. “Right now I think Rangers are in a good position. It is not a case that they have to sell. There is room there to go and negotiate with teams. I’ve said it before, every player has a price tag. If someone wants to meet that valuation then I’m sure Rangers will speak about it. As it stands, he is a Rangers player.”
