Hutton thrilled by Morelos transfer news after Rangers latest

Alan Hutton has claimed transfer talk surrounding Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos “works for both parties”.

The former Gers defender, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claimed the 25-year-old could fetch a “good fee” if his form continues.

As quoted by the Daily Record (October 22nd), Rangers manager Steven Gerrard admitted Morelos has to “perform at a level” at Ibrox “for people to show an interest in him”.

He added that the “noise” about the striker’s future is coming from the Colombian and his representatives, rather than the club.

The striker’s contract at Ibrox expires in 2023.

Hutton hinted that Morelos is trying to impress onlookers with his performances in continental competition.

“I think the manager’s right,” the Rangers TV pundit told Football Insider‘s Russell Edge.

“If he’s getting the best out of Morelos that means he’s scoring goals and putting in good performances on the pitch – and that warrants other clubs looking at the player.

“It’s a win-win for everybody – if Rangers are going to sell, it will be for a good fee which they will reinvest in the squad.

“Steven Gerrard isn’t silly; he knows exactly what’s going on. Morelos’ best performances come under the lights on European nights when he knows everyone is watching.

“It works for both parties. As long as he’s putting the ball in the net, there’ll be teams watching him.”

The 11-cap Colombia international has scored 101 goals in 200 games for Rangers.

Morelos has scored four goals in ten league games this season.
