Steven Gerrard is eager to sign Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos up to a new contract at Ibrox and fans are excited by the prospect of it happening.
It was reported on Wednesday that the club had rejected a bid for the player from French side Bordeaux, triggering fresh anxiety with fans that the Colombian striker could be set for an exit.
However, Steven Gerrard clearly sees him as a big part of his plans for the season ahead, stating his desire to sign the player up to a new, improved deal as soon as possible.
The 22-year-old only signed his latest contract in March, but given that hasn’t put off prospective buyers, tying him down to a new long-term contract could be a massive bit of business this summer.
Fans are certainly eager to see a contract signed after his excellent start to the season.
These supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all…

Morelos’ new deal better have a £15m release clause. Let teams know their no getting him unless they pay stupid money.

Gerrard is spot on reference morelos. Get him an improved deal. Massive release clause in it. If others want him they pay the money.
