The prospect of Champions League football may be enough to keep Alfredo Morelos at Rangers, according to Danny Mills.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-England defender suggested the 24-year-old would not find another club in the competition where he is a guaranteed starter if he were to leave Ibrox.
Morelos is in fine form currently having been directly involved in seven of Rangers’ nine goals in their 9-5 Europa League Round of 32 tie victory over Royal Antwerp.
Speaking after the second leg, Steven Gerrard told BT Sport he knew why the Colombian liked the competition – hinting at the extra attention it garners.
He backed up his performances in Europe by scoring the only goal in the Gers’ vital victory over Livingston on Wednesday night.
Gerrard revealed after that fixture he was in the dressing room dancing with his teammates.
Asked whether the fact Morelos is loving life in Glasgow and the prospect of Champions League football next season could keep him at Rangers next season, Mills told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “Possibly.
“Champions League is a great pull and you’re going to be playing. Where else is he going to be guaranteed Champions League football and playing?
“He may well be a squad player if he moves.
“Without a doubt, if I was him, if you’re in the Champions League it has to be worth thinking about, that’s for sure.”
Earlier this season Morelos became Rangers’ top scorer in European competitions with 22 goals surpassing Ally McCoist.
He has now found the net 23 times and provided 16 assists in 43 Europa League games for the Light Blues.
