Sky Sports journalist Michael Bridge has claimed that Alfredo Morelos could leave Rangers this summer as his contract ticks down at Ibrox.

There is currently much conjecture surrounding the future of the 27-year-old Colombian forward, who will see his current deal expire at the end of the season.

Should El Bufalo leave Ibrox after six years, it will mark the end of an era for the player who has proven to be the most popular club star amongst the Rangers support over the last decade.

Speaking to Give Me Sport, Sky Sports transfer journalist Michael Bridge reckons there is every chance that could happen with the striker currently free to speak with other clubs.

“I think with him, he’s been there a long, long time, and Rangers have, over those years, resisted big bids for him,” said Michael Bridge.

“But obviously, when your manager is critical of the player, the player is now doing cryptic messages on his social media, perhaps it is time for a break, ideally an amicable one.

“I certainly can’t see him signing a new contract, which would mean the end of his Rangers career.

“But obviously, Morelos posting cryptic comments so soon after Beale’s public criticism just strikes me as if they’re both going to part ways.”

Sky Sports reporter tips Alfredo Morelos to leave Rangers

The comments of Sky Sports reporter Michael Bridge come with Alfredo Morelos being publicly criticised by Rangers manager Michael Beale.

Speaking amid high profile links to La Liga outfit Sevilla, reports which have since been rubbished, the Rangers manager challenged Alfredo Morelos to improve his “energy”.

“Alfredo’s situation is slightly different,” said Beale [Viaplay].

“He has been at the club for a long time and I need to see a little bit more from Alfredo day in, day out.

“When he’s played when the team has needed him, he’s fine – but I want a bit more energy in the final third.

“Can he provide that? If he can then he’s a better option than what he has been the last few months. Everything I’m saying here has been said to him as well.”

Meanwhile, another Sky Sports pundit has had a very surprise take on Alfredo Morelos potentially leaving Rangers.
