Sky Sports reported this week that Rangers had received, and rejected, an offer from Bordeaux for striker Alfredo Morelos.
It was a normal ‘understands’ piece from the broadcaster and as the below tweet says, having rebuffed their pathetic reported bid of £3.75million, for some reason we remained in negotiations with them.

With Morelos’ stock growing again this year under manager Steven Gerrard and given the previous speculation about his value, quite why any side would come in that low is beyond me, and quite why if they came in that low we’d continue talking to them is also beyond me.
I wouldn’t expect anything to come of this, we’re already looking for another body up front to give us greater depth, so I fail to see why we’d sell this late in the transfer window and give ourselves further complications and it seems that many fans on social media were equally as happy to ignore this rumour.
Silly offer , nothing to worry about here
