Former Rangers captain Barry Ferguson believes the Ibrox club should try to sell Alfredo Morelos this summer after his latest derby display at Celtic Park, writing in his Daily Record column.
The Colombian was sent off in the first half during yesterday’s encounter after reacting to Scott Brown and elbowing him with force.
Now facing a four-match ban and leaving his teammates in the lurch yesterday, the 22-year-old has again badly let down the club, his manager and the supporters.
Ferguson reckons enough is enough and has called on the club to ensure his exit during this summer’s transfer window.
Writing in The Daily Record, the Rangers icon said:
I can no longer defend him. For months now I’ve backed Alfredo Morelos, my support has been absolute but sorry, enough is enough, yesterday was once too many.
He has let his team-mates down and more than once, twice or three times this season. His behaviour has become too much of a liability.
No matter how much I rate him and believe he’s a fantastic player, he’s letting the club down. He’s letting his team-mates down, the supporters down, his family down and himself down.
As much as I hate to say it I’m one of his biggest fans but Rangers should now look at cashing in on him and if they get a decent offer then they should look at it.
Despite scoring 29 goals this season, Ferguson is right.
If Morelos cannot be relied upon in big matches and in fierce atmospheres then he simply has no business being at Ibrox.
It’s become clear at this point he is never going to learn that he can’t indulge in this off the ball antics and so the logical conclusion is that we try and receive a good fee for him this summer.
That in turn can be used to finance a transfer window of rebuilding, with a number of key positions still needing upgrades.
The Colombian is a fantastic player, but it could be time to say goodbye.
