Two Rangers players have been given the equal highest valuations on the official SPFL Fantasy Football game.
James Tavernier and Alfredo Morelos have been rated at £18m, which is matched only by Celtic’s James Forrest.
Morelos earned the Tartan Ball as the top flight’s top scorer. Meanwhile, with 14 goals and 14 assists, the outstanding Tavernier registered more direct goal contributions than any other in the league, despite being a defender.
The Gers skipper is valued £0.5m higher than Kieran Tierney, who Arsenal are reportedly attempting to sign for £25m [Sun]. Morelos is also half a million more expensive than Odsonne Edouard, who the Hoops signed for a reported £9 million in 2018 [
Several Rangers stars trump Celtic counterparts
They aren’t the only Gers ranking higher than their opposite number from across the city, though.
Allan Mcgregor is valued at £16.2m in comparison to Scott Bain’s £15.5m. Meanwhile, Jermain Defoe comes in at £15.5m, half a million higher than Leigh Griffiths at £15m.
With the Gers winning the last two Old Firms at Ibrox, the players have proven their ability to outperform their counterparts.
This term, it’s about sharing the responsibility around the squad and showing consistency across a full season.
