Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos has been spotted in Glasgow airport, fuelling rumours about the player’s imminent departure.
The image of Morelos in the airport claims to be from last night but it remains unclear why he was there or where he was heading.
It hasn’t stopped some panicking about the immediate future of the much-loved Rangers talisman.

Have players never gone away for a wee trip outside of Glasgow or is Morelos the first one ever?

Don't want Morelos to go..
Better get Roofe on the phone just in case though 😕

I bet Morelos goes and I think we’ll be gutted with the fee

Bigger & better players than Morelos have left Rangers & we’ve done fine without them. If he goes I’ll be gutted but I trust Gaffer & Mark Allen to get right replacement. Ppl need to chill #RFC

Anyone know if Sturridge found his dog? If Morelos goes and we go for him surely its only if the dog is found.. Mans head will never be 100% right if not. ❤⚽️🔵

An eagle-eyed Gers fans also appeared to confirm the striker was in London. Morelos’ wife, who is in the airport photo with him, tagged herself at a London restaurant.

The rumours around Morelos’ future haven’t been helped by the fact the player shared a post linking him to Crystal Palace.
The Selhurst Park club of course play in London and have cash to burn following the £50m sale of Aaron Wan Bissaka to Man Utd amidst ongoing talk over Wilfred Zaha’s future.
They are also on the hunt for a striker with Michy Batshuayi returning to Chelsea.
West Ham is another London club who need a forward after talisman Marko Arnautovic left for China in a £23m deal.
But will either be able to meet Rangers’ demands and stump up close to £20m for the player?
As it stands, the Colombian remains a Rangers player.
