Former Rangers striker Kenny Miller believes that £6million is “probably the maximum” the Light Blues will get if they sell Alfredo Morelos this summer as the Colombian enters the final year of his Ibrox contract.
Morelos has been linked with a litany of clubs and Miller, who was most recently at Falkirk, admits that the Gers aren’t likely to be happy with the sort of money on offer.
Despite only having a year left on his deal at Rangers, Miller doesn’t think staying in Glasgow would be a “big drama” for Morelos.
Reports in Spain claimed that Seville had offered just over £6million for Morelos, something Rangers denied, and Miller concedes that is probably the ceiling of his value this summer.
“I don’t think they will be happy with that, but that is probably the maximum they are going to get,” Miller said [Go Radio Football Show].
“If he can score the goals that get Rangers to the Champions League, then absolutely keep him, but there is no guarantee of that.
“I firmly believe that Alfredo holds all the cards. I believe he loves it here in Glasgow and scoring in front of that Ibrox crowd.
“I don’t think staying for another year would be a big drama for him. He is going to be playing, and anybody who comes in has to take the shirt off his back.”
Losing Morelos would be hammer blow for Rangers this summer
While it seems inevitable that Morelos will be moving on, losing the Colombian this summer would be a huge blow for Rangers.
With nobody at the club that can really step into the gap his absence would create, signing a replacement won’t come cheap.
A new deal for the Colombian would be ideal but if that’s not likely to happen, Rangers seriously need to weigh up whether selling him now is worth it.
