As Rangers launched their new home kit it was hard for the club’s fans not to react to the absence of Alfredo Morelos from the Castore-led marketing promotions.
The Colombian striker is the Ibrox talisman and yet his image was nowhere to be seen as the Glasgow club launched a new era of retail operations.
It’s absolutely no confirmation of anything, but with interest bubbling in the background and agents linking the 29-goal striker to the likes of Napoli [CN24], there’s growing uncertainty over Morelos’ future.
Rangers boss Steven Gerrard described whether Morelos would be at Ibrox or not this season as the “million-dollar question”.
It’s had plenty of Rangers fans questioning the future of the adored Colombian forward, who as per always was pictured smiling in training.
Rangers have always stuck by their guns when it comes to the striker and won’t let him leave unless a club meets their asking price, believed to be anywhere between £15-20m.
With Morelos still very much a Rangers player and no signs of any concrete interest, the club’s supporters have been reacting to all this exit talk on Twitter.
Why do People no understand just because Morelos isn’t in the kit reveal doesn’t mean he’s away, he was literally in training yesterday pic.twitter.com/SKuQcrP4fL

Was so emotional dropping Morelos off at the airport there, he was crying as well. €120k a week he told me he will be getting at Barca, really going to miss him. Just waiting on Van Persies flight coming in to drop him off at the training centre 👍🏻🇬🇧

Lots of people are concerned about Morelos not being in the new kit promo shots. It'll just be simply that he wasn't back in the country when they were taken. pic.twitter.com/Q9lAwu7bpF

As much as I hate to admit it Napoli would be an incredible move for Morelos. Can’t see us or him turning it down if they come in with an offer

Please just keep Morelos for one more season

Heard not only is Morelos away but it's SD that's selling him.

The Ibrox striker remains at Rangers for the time being and many fans will be hoping to see the former HJK Helsinki man line up in the first XI come the big kick-off.
But will Rangers be forced to cash in on the striker if a club makes any of this reported interest concrete with a solid bid?
