Rangers have rejected yet another bid from Beijing Renhe for striker Alfredo Morelos, according to a report.
Sky Sports News claimed on Friday afternoon, as cited by their Twitter account, that the Glasgow giants have snubbed a further formal offer from the cash-rich Chinese club for the Colombian.

The broadcaster do not detail the figure involved in the latest bid for Morelos.
But it comes after the Scottish Sun reported earlier today (Friday) that the cash-rich outfit had upped their previous offer for the in-form south American to £9million.
The Ibrox side have turned down bids from the Chinese Super League team as Graeme Murty has hailed the player’s attitude and professionalism, while insisting he can realise his international ambitions at Rangers.
Morelos took his goal tally for the season to 15 from 30 matches with his double in last weekend’s 6-1 Scottish Cup demolition of League One outfit Ayr United.
Football Insider Verdict:
This has now reached the point where Rangers should take the money and run. Morelos is a promising player and could eventually develop into a very good one, but the sort of numbers being bandied about for such a raw talent are taking on jawdropping proportions. Whether the latest offer is much beyond the previous £9million one is not explained by Sky, but there is talk of potentially £11million being paid to the Glasgow giants. That would not only smash the club’s record sale, which is the £9million from Tottenham in January 2008 for right-back Allan Hutton, but would provide much-needed cash to put the financially squeezed club on a firmer footing.
