Gabriel Agbonlahor has claimed Rangers could look to sell Alfredo Morelos if he continues to “disappoint” Steven Gerrard with his reckless violent conduct.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley, the former Aston Villa and England striker suggested Gerrard will fine the Colombian and he will struggle to get back into his side.
Morelos was hit with a two-game ban yesterday after the yellow card he received against Dundee United for catching Mark Connolly with his arm.
The 24-year-old has not scored in the Scottish Premiership since September 20 and with Kemar Roofe and Jermain Defoe firing, Agbonlahor has insisted he will struggle to regain his place after his ban.
“He’s disappointing the manager,” he told Football Insider.
“If I’m Steven Gerrard now, they’ve looked into the incident and changed it to a red card he’ll just be disappointed.
“There’s no reason for him to do it. From the footage I’ve seen, he’s ran put an elbow out when there’s no reason for him to put the elbow out to help his jump.
“I was 100 per cent sure it would be changed to a red card.
“If I’m Steven Gerrard I punish him with a fine and it’ll be a long way back for him to get into the side because Kemar Roofe is in great form and you’ve got Jermain Defoe there.
“I think Steven Gerrard will be upset with him because he doesn’t need these distractions and suspensions because they’re so far ahead of Celtic now he’ll want to keep winning because.
“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.”
