Allen will go from hero to zero if he lets Rangers star depart amid English hunt claim

COMMENT
Rangers’ Director of Football Mark Allen will go from hero to zero if he let star striker Alfredo Morelos leave amid reports of sides south of the border hunting his signature.
The Scottish Sun have claimed that the English Championship’s surprise package Bristol City are eyeing up a move for the 21-year-old forward, who only arrived at Ibrox last summer, in a bid to secure a place in the Premier League next season.
With the Gers reportedly demanding double the £1million spent on securing his signature from HJK Helsinki, it may be able to ward of those with shallow pockets but it could end up tempting those with more financial firepower into making a swoop.
The Colombian forward has netted at a rate of nearly a goal every two games, with 12 goals in 25 appearances, which is an impressive record for someone so young and inexperienced in Scottish football, and it makes him not only a hot prospect for the future but a talent for the here and now.
Rangers have enjoyed a successful transfer window this month, having brought in Jamie Murphy, Sean Goss, Russell Martin and Jason Cummings, while the club also secured the permanent signing of Declan John, while they offloaded flop Carlos Pena.
However, Allen’s good work would all be undone if he were to let Morelos leave, no matter the price, as it would be a move which would sabotage the Gers’ hopes of battling at the very top of Scottish football once again.
In other Rangers transfer news, the club are hoping to secure a done deal on Monday for a top flight talent.
