'Sold on the cheap' - Chris Sutton backs Rangers as they hold out for huge money for prolific star
Chris Sutton seems to be backing Rangers as they refuse to sell Alfredo Morelos unless they are offered huge money.
The Light Blues have reportedly turned £8million for the Colombian striker from Chinese side Beijing Renhe, and the BT Sport pundit thinks that the Gers are well within their rights to hold out for big money for one of their most important players.
“£8million is some price for any SPFL player? Nonsense!” Sutton said, on his personal Twitter account.

Morelos is currently the top scorer in the Scottish Premiership, having scored 11 goals in the competition so far and 13 goals overall.
The 21-year-old, who was signed from HJK Helsinki, has been by far the biggest success story of the summer signings made by former manager Pedro Caixinha, and he has replicated his good form under Graeme Murty.
The Gers have done some business in January, signing the likes of Russell Martin, Jamie Murphy and Jason Cummings, and they don’t seem to want to put that work into jeopardy by selling Morelos.
Morelos’ next match for the Light Blues may well be the Scottish Cup tie against non-league Fraserburgh on Wednesday night.
The Gers go into the game on the back of a 2-1 win over Ross County in Dingwall, the victory taking them back above Aberdeen and into second place in the Scottish Premiership table.
