Writer Barry Ferguson has argued that Alfredo Morelos and two other stars could have played their last matches for Scottish Premiership side Rangers.
Ryan Kent, Joe Aribo and Alfredo Morelos will all be heading into their final years at Ibrox with the possibility of any of them committing to the club appearing bleak.
Rangers lost the UEFA Europa League final to Frankfurt in May and the side could let a number of players out, apparently paving the way for new signings in the transfer window.
“With Ryan Kent, Joe Aribo and Alfredo Morelos all entering the final years of their contracts, I’m finding it difficult to believe that at least one of them may not already have played their last game in a blue shirt,” Ferguson said.
“And, as painful as it will be to see any of them moving on, it’s probably time for the fans to brace themselves for the possibility of having to say goodbye to one of their star men,” he adds.
Rangers came so close to losing Connor Goldson ‘for nothing’, with Ferguson not so sure they will want to take a similar risk again with the likes of Kent, Aribo, or Morelos.
If Goldson had been signed up on a long-term deal, Rangers would have looked at bringing in five or six million quid for him in the market, according to Ferguson.
“I’m sure they factored that into the thinking when they allowed him to run down the last year of his deal.
“In many ways, it was worth keeping him for that kind of money as he was worth more to the team than the bank account.
“But that’s simply not the case with the other three guys. The bottom line is Rangers would be looking at bringing in double or even treble that amount if they cashed in on any one of them.”
Rangers have established themselves among major European football clubs and Barry Ferguson believes it would be better if the mentioned players sealed new deals with Rangers as the future looks promising.
