Frank McAvennie is adamant that Alfredo Morelos will stay at Rangers beyond the October 5 transfer deadline after the striker dropped a hint on social media.

The former Celtic and St Mirren striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, said that while the club will “have a price” for the 24-year-old he fully expects him to be stay for another season.

The Colombian took to social media following Steven Gerrard’s side’s 5-1 thrashing of Motherwell on Sunday and left fans excited with a cryptic message.

The caption translated as: “I do what you can’t. You do what I can. TOGETHER WE CAN DO GREAT THINGS.”

Morelos has been the subject of great transfer interest this summer with West Brom the latest team to consider a move for the Colombia international, as revealed by this site earlier this month.

When asked by Football Insider what could be read into the social media message, McAvennie said: “I would think that means he is staying.

“Morelos has been touted everywhere. He has been all over the place.

“But it looks like Rangers are going to be the only one that benefits from this. He is their main guy.

“They are the only ones that are going to benefit because they will not let him go for nothing. Rangers have a price. Even though they need the money they will not let him go cheap. With Covid I am sure that he will be at Rangers for another year.”

Morelos has scored five goals in nine appearances for the Gers this season despite Gerrard revealing last month that the striker’s head had been turned by transfer speculation.

He still has three years remaining on his contract at Ibrox having renewed terms last year.
