Haven't looked at Twitter but if he wants away, go now so we have over a month to replace him. Defoe and a quality striker with any Morelos money will do me.

He'll go with my best wishes if he doesn't pi** about waiting until the last minute.

Perhaps waiting until we actually get an offer may delay him moving

We all want him to leave to a Premiership club but we're annoyed he feels the same way?
Agreed.

I don't know how any of us can deny him his move to a bigger set up etc.

He's a lad from deepest Colombia with absolutely no connections to Rangers. Of course he is within his rights to seek a move.

He'll make us a good profit, so we should all be happy with that.

Guy can't speak or read english so just retweets stuff when he sees his name.
I find it pretty odd that he can't speak or read English after living here for a year or so and seeing him mouth "%^*& you" to an opposition player in match, tbh.

I think we're all quite happy for Alfie to move to a better league if that's his wish as long as the price is right for us.

I remember when he was at Helsinki and he DMd someone on here saying it was all happening. He won't be shy in making it known he's moving again.

Not necessarily this, but it is absolutely clear to me that the lad wants a move move away from Scotland - and I fully understand that.

He's not going to want to endure another season in the SPHell.

Hopefully we can get a deal sorted asap. Best for all parties.
I'm not sure another season in the SPL would be such a bad idea for either party.

I also don't see Gerrard involving Alfie if he's already "checked out".

His interview a while back with RTV suggests to me is that though he wants to go to the EPL, he is happy here and that the only way I think he would spit the dummy is if we were rejecting bids from down south but we're not. I also think Gerrard has plans if we sell but will be happy to keep him as well as a player of his quality who does fit perfectly in his pressing game, with his goals record, will always be a player a manager will be happy to have.

I just can't see him staying mate.

SG says there have been no 'bids' yet. Technically that may be true but we all know there will be stuff going on in the background to engineer a move. His agent has been angling for this for ages. I'm not sure he sees his client hanging around in Scotland for much longer.

Few things:

- Alfredo has left us under no illusions from the start, he does intend to move the the EPL after being with us
- With that being said, he's never indicated that hes anything but 100% committed to us when on the pitch
- He is also known to retweet and like stuff that mentions him positively, no matter what content it has in it. This isnt the first time.

Reality is, he wont leave this summer unless a class bid comes in for him. His agent may be touting him about but i also dont think hes the type of guy to go in a huff with Rangers if no one else bids for him. I DO think that this season will be his last season here no matter what though.

Im sure its been said that he can communicate in English but he's not confident enough to do interviews etc. He obviously understands enough to get the tactics that the coaching staff are putting to him.

Also seem to remember someone saying that hes not particularly literate in Spanish which makes it harder to learn a second language. I may be misremembering here though so maybe someone will debunk or confirm this.

The plot thickens. He can read and speak English (which appears to be fairly obvious, tbh) yet isn't particularly literate in the native language of his country?

I meant verbally communicate in English to a degree but isn't a great writer in his native language. But as I said I can't remember how I got this info so I may be misremembering

The transfer window still has plenty to run - and if we get top dollar he will be away.

I just don't see at as being the be all and end all this window.

I want him to stay. I also don't know how people can tell he's 'desperate' to leave. It's a bit weird that this seems to have become a thing.
Agreed. No idea where the "he clearly wants out" posters are getting this from.

Last night I saw a thoroughly professional job by Alfie. Not picked to start but came on as sub, worked hard and scored his goal, looking happy enough to me.

I dont doubt that he would be interested if an EPL bid came in, only natural. But in the meantime, he's being paid handsomely, has the adulation of (most) of our fans and has a real chance to kick on and fire us to trophies this season. Nothing in there to warrant him downing tools.

It's due to interviews he's given in Colombia where he's made it clear he'd like to play in a bigger league. Whether he's ''desperate'' to leave we don't know but we do know he'd like to play in a better league.

He absolutely did not.

He 'liked' a few comments from Turkish fans on Instagram saying 'we miss you, come back'.

Clint Hill did that to one of my tweets to him. Doesn't mean he's coming out of retirement.
So you're saying you are pretty sure Clint Hill is coming out of retirement?

Everyone knows he wants to go to the EPL, he is clearly happy here until a suitable offer comes around which he knows he has to earn.

God forbid the boy re-tweets a story promoting himself. Honestly the hysteria on here from some folk over completely trivial pish is absolutely embarrassing.

Morelos wants to better himself so a move to the EPL isn't really shocking. Big month ahead for him, start the season well scoring goals and the bids will come in.

For me he came on yesterday played well got a goal as long as he is doing that and isn't being disruptive (which in fairness there are no signs of) then I am happy

Happy for him to go to Palace. Theyve already brought in 50 mill n will get at least the same for Zaha. So they will have plenty money to spend. Would be a good move for Morelos as well

What has he done that makes it absolutely clear to you?

I agree it’s inevitable he will go in the next 6 months but it still annoys me that the corrupt referees in Scotland have probably knocked 50% of his value with his ‘discipline problems’. Anyone looking at it from outside Scotland will see his red cards and won’t appreciate that he has been vilified since the moment he stepped foot in Scotland. I’d love nothing more than him to decide to stay until January with the managers blessing to leave then, not give the refs anything to send him off for and him to score 30 goals before them to double his value!
