Rangers planning to offer new contract to 23-year-old striker

Gers are trying to tie Alfredo Morelos down to another improved deal only to keep him sweet for a few more months. That is according to ex-Premier League footballer Michael Brown, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about yet another new deal for the 23-year-old centre-forward.

The Daily Record reported last week that Gers have opened negotiations with Alfredo’ representatives over a new contract with improved terms. It is said that talks stay open and have been ongoing for weeks, as the Scottish giants look to further tie down their prize asset.

Brown is sceptical over whether a new deal would be proof of genuine long-term commitment from Colombia international or merely a device to keep him happy for the remainder of the campaign. “They’re just doing it to beat him out,” the former Tottenham, Man City and Leeds United midfielder said.

“They’ll get sick of that, if it’s always a renewal, always a renewal, always on for more dough… there’s only so far they can go.” The Colombian striker’s current deal, signed last March, is worth more than £30,000-a-week. That puts him on a par with the top earners in Scottish football, who also include his partners like Jermain Defoe.
