Paul Robinson worried over the thought of Rangers being without striker Alfredo Morelos until February.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the former England No.1 believes being without Morelos for that amount of time would be an absolutely massive blow for the Gers.
It was recently reported that the Gers fear being without the Colombian forward until February as the attacker is facing a possible SFA charge for his alleged ‘throat-slitting’ gesture against Celtic.
Morelos is already set to be banned for three games due to picking up a red card in the 2-1 win over Celtic.
Robinson explained that any side would be affected if they lost a prolific goalscorer like Morelos from their side, and feared a long suspension could hurt the Gers’ title bid.
When asked if it would be a huge blow to be without Morelos until February, Robinson told Football Insider: “Yeah, that would be a huge blow, an absolutely massive blow for them.
“To lose a player of his importance and quality…if you take that amount of goals out of any team, it’s going to have a massive impact.
“It’d be a huge blow to Rangers’ title hopes if he was out for any length of time.”
The 23-year-old forward has been in red-hot form for Steven Gerrard’s side this season, having racked up 28 goals in 35 appearances.
The Gers currently sit second in the league two points behind Celtic but have a game in hand over their archrivals.
