Former Rangers player Alan Hutton expects Alfredo Morelos to depart the Light Blues at the end of the season.
The Colombian international’s contract expires in just over two months’ time and there has been no indication that the striker will put pen to paper on an extension. Hutton feels that it is now very likely that the 26-year-old will end his spell at Ibrox after six years:
“I have got a feeling that he won’t sign again for Rangers. I think his time has now come to an end and he will move on. It is like anybody else he will be looking to play at the highest level possible. He is more than capable of playing at that level when he is fit and ready. So it is up to him to maintain those standards that he has shown previously at Rangers. I think this will be the last season for him.”
Manager Michael Beale has refuted reports that Morelos has already signed a pre-contract agreement with La Liga club Sevilla, but he also said that the forward has not given him any guarantees that he wants to stay.
It does appear as if the player is very much weighing up his options. If he doesn’t get the offer he wants from another team, he may ultimately end up deciding to remain in Glasgow. Whether Beale would be happy to keep someone with that sort of attitude, though, it is doubtful.
