Alfredo Morelos will ignore transfer interest and stay at Rangers this summer.

That is according to former Celtic and St Mirren striker Frank McAvennie, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the “amazing” 24-year-old looking “very happy” at Ibrox.

Morelos was an unused substitute in Sunday’s 4-0 Scottish Cup win over Cove Rangers.

As reported by the Daily Record, the Colombian was filmed having fun in the stands, as he threw bits of paper off James Tavernier while sporting a cheeky grin.

It comes just days after Morelos hailed his teammates shortly after being named the Scottish Premiership ‘Player of the Month’.

McAvennie sees no reason why the Colombia international would want to leave this summer.

“He seems very happy at Rangers now,” he told Football Insider.

“Nobody has ever doubted his ability and now he has got over the hurdle of scoring against Celtic he will be hungry for more.

“I wouldn’t be too pleased with myself though, I am 61 and I could score against the current Celtic defence! I joke but he’s an amazing player and you realise when he is not playing. They are a much better side with him in it.

“He has got vast experience in Scotland now so they’ll be desperate to keep him and I think he will want to stay because they are doing so well.

“Rangers have had success in the league and a good run in Europe and he is obviously enjoying it.”


Speaking on his teammates last week, Morelos told RangersTV: “Their support for me is unconditional and I really appreciate it so much.

“I hope to continue to contribute more to the team.”
