This week has been full of reports about potential suitors for the Colombian.
Clubs all over Europe were touted as possible destinations and it’s obvious why.
El Buffalo has been on fire all season long and already has 28 goals to his name in all competitions.
Yet, he’s loving Ibrox too much to leave.
“It did not take me long to agree this extension because my career has progressed quicker and better than i could have imagined when I joined this great club”, Morelos told the club’s website.
“I have come to realise just how special Rangers is and what it means to so many people around the world. Also, I feel a strong connection with the fans and they have made me feel special.”
Furthermore, his manager, Steven Gerrard, chipped in with praise.
“He is a competitive individual and he is a winner. He is what Rangers needs and it is pleasing that Alfredo feels so much at home with us that he is willing to commit.”
This is the best transfer news anyone connected with the club could have hoped for.
It looks like the talisman, the buffalo, is staying through the summer and beyond.
Naturally, Twitter descended into chaos after the deal was announced.
Here’s a selection of reactions:
Fantastic news ! He is such a special player , Simply The Best !
