Neil McCann says Rangers must demand "crazy" £25m for Alfredo Morelos

Former Rangers star Neil McCann says that Rangers would be mad to accept anything less than £25m for star man Alfredo Morelos.

Ibrox boss Steven Gerrard might be confident of keeping the Colombian beyond the January transfer window [BT Sport], but most bluenoses accept that Morelos will move on eventually.

As quoted by the Scottish Sun, McCann believes that Rangers must demand megabucks for Morelos when he does move on.

“The manager will put up a healthy fight [to keep him], that’s for sure,” said Neil McCann.

“I can’t see for the life of me the board entertaining Morelos going unless it was stupid money.

“I mean, it would have to be crazy cash – £25 million plus, maybe, Kieran Tierney money.

“You see guys moving down south readily from the Championship for that type of money.

“When you look at Morelos, he is a fantastic goal scorer and has so much so offer, powerful.

“To Rangers, is he worth more if they were offered £25 million?

“I think Steven Gerrard would argue yes, because I think they have a real genuine opportunity of wining the Premiership this season.

“I’m pretty sure he would argue if you sell Morelos in January then you throw away the chance of getting that trophy.”

There’s a genuine feeling at Ibrox that when Morelos does move on that he will do so for record money, not just at Rangers but in Scotland.

Kieran Tierney currently stands as the most expensive transfer in history after his £25m move to Arsenal in the summer.

But with 20 goals by November, Alfredo Morelos is on the form of his life and literally blowing teams away.

Is £25m+ really that unrealistic a price tag?
