January loan signing Russell Martin has said that he’s not worried about striker Alfredo Morelos’ future form even if speculation about his future continues in the coming weeks.
After a dramatic and unsuccessful late £8million January transfer window bid was reported, Morelos was left on the bench for the Scottish Cup tie against Fraserburgh.
He came back into the team against Hibernian on Saturday, but couldn’t add to his 13 goals as his side went down 2-1 to Neil Lennon’s side.
The Chinese transfer window is still open for another month and it means that the saga might not be finished yet.
However, Martin does not believe it will impact the form of Morelos.
Talking in the Herald, Martin said: “You could see on Saturday that he worked his socks off. He dominated the centre halfs most of the game.
“He didn’t get the goal that he or we would have liked, but he has been fine. He is a good lad. He is quite bubbly and lively. There has been no difference in him.
“If his attitude was wrong and the training pitch and he had been sulking about then of course there would be a need to pull him aside and have a chat, but he hasn’t been like that at all so I don’t think there’s been a need to really.
“Listen, he’s a good player. Since I have come in the building I have seen what he’s about. He’s a very good player. None of us can dictate what people want to pay. That is up to the clubs. Alfredo seems happy enough.”
Morelos will get a chance to add to his goals in the Premiership on Tuesday when Rangers take on Partick in a 7.45pm kick-off.
After missing the chance to narrow the gap to Celtic at the top of the table on Saturday, three points will be a must if they want to make the league competitive.
