Gerrard unsure on Morelos future

24 July 2021 19:18:08 GMTPlus10

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard admits he doesn't know what the future holds for star striker Alfredo Morelos.

The Colombian forward played a massive part in helping the Gers end Celtic's nine-year stranglehold of the Scottish Premiership last season and they can be backed at 1.44 to repeat the feat this term.

He bagged 17 goals in all competitions in the previous campaign as Gerrard had to juggle his front line to accommodate Kemar Roofe, Jermain Defoe and Cedric Itten.

Rangers' preparations for the new season are being overshadowed by paper talk surrounding Morelos, who was linked with a move to Bordeaux last summer and is now said to be a target for Porto.

I don't know what's going to happen with him (Morelos).

Morelos, who joined for £1million from Finnish side HJK Helsinki in 2017, has two years remaining on his current contract and there is no sign yet that he will pen an extension.

When asked about the future of the fiery forward, Gerrard couldn't give a definitive answer.

"I've read a lot of stuff around Alfredo. I know where it's coming from, but I don't know what's going to happen with him," the ex-Liverpool midfielder admitted.

"I get asked this question every window because you read more about Alfredo in terms of who he is linked with or where he's possibly going rather than talk about what he does on the pitch."

Morelos is yet to return to Ibrox for pre-season training having been away with his country for the Copa America.

Rangers get their season underway on 31st July when they face Livingston at home.
