Rangers star Alfredo Morelos has claimed he is “happy” at Ibrox after a summer of transfer links to Portuguese side FC Porto.

The Colombian striker, 25, is one of the Ibrox club’s major assets and was extensively linked with a move to Portugal by reports in the Iberian nation all summer long.

These included claims that Porto could put up a deal to Rangers worth an initial £10m fee and rising to around £15m (€12m-€17m) [A Bola].

However these failed to materialise for whatever reason and Morelos would eventually return to Rangers after a disjointed summer following a spell at the Copa America.

Speaking to Radio Caracol in the player’s homeland, Morelos revealed he still believes he’s developing in Scotland but admitted he does remain hopeful of a big move in the future.

“You heard a lot about my departure, that Porto or several teams that made a proposal, but did not reach an agreement with Rangers, so my stay in Rangers continues and I feel happy.

“I started in the best way, scoring goals and what is to come. That’s important to me.

“The offers have been there. An agreement has not been reached with the teams.

 

“I am calm and I am a young player, I hope that soon the opportunity to leave will be given.

“Here at Rangers I have already been champion, I have made history and we hope that it will happen; the opportunity to come out in the best way.

“Each player wants to improve each day and be in a better league, in a more watched league.

“This league (Scottish Premiership) has taught me important things in my career.

“I have started in the best way, the previous one I scored many goals. Also, may it be God’s opportunity and may a big step be taken soon.”

The striker certainly seems relaxed about his future and Rangers fans will be hoping Alfie can fire them to domestic and European success this season.

Morelos remains a key player for the Ibrox side and here’s how the striker responded following a Champions League strike against Malmo earlier in the season.
