Mills: Rangers sale of Morelos could be 'done and dusted' after update via BBC

Danny Mills has suggested Rangers could be forced to sell Alfredo Morelos.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Premier League and England full-back delivered his verdict after the Gers failed to qualify for the Champions League group stages.

Steven Gerrard revealed via BBC Sport after the game on 12 August it will have financial implications that could see them sell players.

His side were beaten 4-2 on aggegrate to Malmo and have now dropped into the Europa League.

“The finances in Scottish football are difficult,” Mills told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“It’s certainly not easy in any way, shape or form for them up there.

“They’re going to have to adjust accordingly. Without the Champions League money it’s very tight. You need the Champions League money to be able to compete at any sort of level.

“If they have to raise money they’ve got a couple of weeks to do so in the transfer window.

“Steven Gerrard has done a great job over the past couple of seasons, there’s no need to panic. Expectation is the biggest problem in football. Let’s just wait and see what is really going to happen.

“Sometimes at the start of the season, especially with some players away, it can be difficult, it can be tricky.

“It could be the time for Morelos to leave. Everyone will say ‘That’s it, done and dusted’. We live in a world now where finances in football are very, very fluid and people don’t know what’s happening one day to the next.

“Everything is moving constantly. Everyone wants to get to the end of the transfer window where you can settle down and work with what you’ve got.”
