Former Scotland captain Colin Hendry thinks that Rangers star Alfredo Morelos will fetch over £30million when he finally leaves Ibrox after hitting his 21st goal of the season in the 2-0 win over Porto last night.
The Colombian has been subject to constant transfer speculation and his price tag only continues to rise with every passing game and former Premier League winner Hendry has weighed in on the debate.
Got to be 30plus…. some of the sh%#e that commands more on “ what they might do”….is frightening.
As longs he’s sorted his “ head” out…
You can still see the “ edge” in him 😉.

After a fan posted a list of Premier League dross that went for huge fees, asking what value Morelos holds, Hendry offered his views, admitting the prices of some of those named were “frightening.”
The ex-Gers ace thinks that if Morelos has “sorted his head out” after a string of red cards then he’ll go for a Scottish record fee.
Rangers fans are desperate to see Morelos remain at Ibrox long-term and Gers boss Steven Gerrard has insisted that he’s not going anywhere in January.
If someone does come in with that level of bid then it will be hard for Rangers to turn it down – but if keeping him is the difference between winning the league and coming second then it is imperative he stays.
At the rate he’s going, it won’t be long until £30million seems like it wouldn’t be enough to entice Rangers into selling – and it is scary to think that he’s still only 23.
