Smith Backs Rangers To Sell Key Star If ‘Big Bid’ Is Made This Summer

Former Rangers forward Gordon Smith has backed his former club to sell Alfredo Morelos if the club receive a sizeable offer this summer.

The Colombian has already expressed a desire to play in a more competitive league such as in Spain, England or France, although he was keen to emphasise he was happy at Ibrox.

Smith thinks Rangers have performed well without Morelos when he has been missing through suspension, and that a sale for the right price should be considered:

“Rangers play with more fluidity when he is not involved, and this was proof positive. If the club receive a big bid for the Colombian in the summer, they should take it and use part of the funds to strengthen their squad.”

You could argue that, for the right amount, cashing in on the striker would be the best option but replacing Morelos’s goals would be a huge challenge for Gers manager Steven Gerrard.

The 22-year-old has hit the back of the net 29 times in all competitions this season, and he has also contributed 11 assists. Gerrard will want to be sure a replacement can be found before even considering selling up.
