'At least £10million', 'Great bit of business' - Rangers fans react to eye-watering claim
Rangers fans have turned to social media to react to news that striker Alfredo Morelos could be set for an £8million move to the Chinese Super League after Beijing Renhe made the eye-watering offer for the Gers striker.
The Scottish Sun claim the Chinese side are keen to lure the Colombian away from Ibrox by almost quadrupling his current wage to £27,000 per week after he hit 13 goals in his first 27 games for the Ibrox giants.
The Gers are believed to have rejected the latest offer and are desperate to keep their star striker in Glasgow until they can sort a replacement for him.
Gers fans are eager to see the Colombian stay at Ibrox – until the end of the season at least – with one saying the Gers will win their 55th league title if the 21-year-old remains in Scotland.
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

Im not convinced JC can play same role as Morelos – different type of player. Morelos is strong, can hold the ball up really well and altho not as clinical as JC, is vital to the way we play. Two of them together couldve been dynamite.
Desperately need a similar

If Morelos wants to go let him but hold out for at least £10m @RangersFC get a 30% sell on clause on there as well

As i said on the pod cast last night. If we were to get £8m plus for Morelos it would be a great bit of Business. However this is a football club. Not a company that bases success on Profit. Success is measured with winning trophies and its my opinion we need him at the moment

Dont get why people want to sell morelos theres not enough time to get good replacements in, keep him hopefully finishes well 2nd half of the season sell him for the same or more

Morelos only moved to Ibrox in the summer from HJK Helsinki but has immediately become a fan favourite with the Gers support.
The Colombian’s goal-scoring record and hard-working performances have quickly endeared him to a support who have been forced to watch a parade of journeymen and mercenaries go through the motions in recent years.
The striker is in the Gers squad for the trip to face Fraserburgh in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup on Wednesday night,
