Former Rangers striker Billy Dodds thinks that the Gers should cash in on Alfredo Morelos and “go in another direction” to stop Celtic winning the league.

Morelos has been linked with moves away constantly, most recently a £15million switch to Rennes, and Dodds believes Rangers should seriously consider that sort of money.

The retired striker also claimed that Steven Gerrard’s “mindset is changing” over the Colombian – although remains doubtful teams will cough up the sort of money needed to lure him away.

“If they get that sort of money, I’d certainly be thinking of cashing in,” Dodds told BBC Sportsound.

“So if that kind of money comes in, and I’m not sure it will, if I was Gerrard, I’d cash in and try to go another direction in stopping Celtic winning 10 in a row.

“There was a time when Gerrard was saying, ‘No chance. I don’t care what sort of bid it is. He’s playing so well for us and is so important to us’.

“But that’s when the form was good. So I’m sure the manager’s mindset is changing.

“Rennes said they’ll pay £15m for him and there are other clubs in Qatar. I’m not so sure clubs are in a position to pay that sort of money just now, so that’s me saying there’s a good chance of him being at Rangers still.”

Morelos was vital for Ranges last season but there is a real dilemma for Gerrard if the sort of fees mentioned are offered.

Replacing the Colombian’s goals won’t be easy but with £15million-plus banked from a sale, there would be a few quid for Gerrard to spend in the transfer market.

If the money isn’t offered though, there will be few complaints about Morelos sticking around in Glasgow a bit longer and continuing to add to his ever-growing reputation.
