Rangers boss Michael Beale claims that he will “find out” about the future of Alfredo Morelos this week amid links to Sevilla.

Reports this week emerged claiming that the 26-year-old Colombian striker had agreed a deal with the top La Liga side as his contract comes to an end at Ibrox.

There is some dubiety surrounding the reports, but that didn’t stop one journalist asking Michael Beale the question following the 3-0 Scottish Cup win over Raith Rovers.

Alfredo Morelos did come off the bench in the game but Croatian striker Antonio Colak was once again preferred to the South American.

Appearing to pour a little cold water on the rumours, Michael Beale revealed that he’d find out the situation from Alfredo Morelos this week.

The Rangers manager also claims he is “not sure” it’s the case Morelos has agreed a deal with Sevilla, even if he admitted the Colombian is free to speak with whomever he wants.

“No [Morelos has not intimated a move to Sevilla], he’s trained all week, I just decided to go with the two forwards who played so well on Wednesday,” said Michael Beale.

“So no, we’ve not discussed it. I’ve not seen any change in him.

“Obviously he’s been free to speak to whichever club he likes for a good while now and we’re into March, so he’s had that but we haven’t spoke it.

“Yeah (I’d prefer he told me if he has agreed a pre-contract elsewhere) but I’m not sure that’s the case and if it is we’ll find out in the coming days.

“My focus has been on the game.”

Morelos heads up summer of Ibrox change

Rangers face a big summer of change and if Alfredo Morelos is to move on from the club it will be the end of an era for the Gers’ all-time record European goalscorer.

Alongside Ryan Kent, the Colombian is the most valuable out of contract star at the club and should Alfie leave on a free then it will continue to heap scrutiny on the club’s squad management.

But it will also see the most popular player of the last ten years leave Ibrox having become a Rangers centurion and lifted the Scottish Premiership title during his time in Glasgow.

If he does go, there will be quite a large Alfredo Morelos sized hole to fill at Ibrox.
