Rangers manager Steven Gerrard should consider selling Alfredo Morelos if the Colombian international’s disciplinary problems surface once again, according to ex-Aston Villa forward Gabriel Agbonlahor.
The 24-year-old will serve a two-match suspension after he was cited for shoving his forearm in Mark Connolly’s face in the Light Blues’ win over Dundee United last weekend. The incident is the latest in the long line of indiscretions by the striker and Agbonlahor feels Gerrard should cut the player loose in January if he jeopardises the club’s title challenge:
“Steven Gerrard will see this as the perfect chance to win the league and I’m sure Rangers will be heartbroken if they don’t win the league given the position they’re in now. If Morelos keeps doing these things it’s something Gerrard will get frustrated with and look to move him on.”
To be fair to Morelos, he has only picked up four bookings in 21 appearances this campaign, which shows he is far more disciplined than he used to be. If he were to be sold next month, it would probably be for financial reasons only.
Rangers reportedly were demanding €20m (£18m) for the Colombian last summer and it remains to be seen whether his dip in form this season would affect his value in the transfer market.
