The former club striker has been honest to say that money can be used to strengthen other areas of the squad.

According to former Rangers footballer, Kris Boyd, the team should be looking to sell Colombian striker Alfredo Morelos.

Boyd said this move would allow the team to strengthen other areas of their squad for the 2019-2020 season.

“If I was Rangers I would sell him because I think that if you can get the money that teams might be willing to pay, you can go and maybe strengthen your squad or your first team with maybe three or four other players who can make a big difference,” Boyd told Sky Sports.

“I think when Alfredo Morelos plays, he plays up there on his own.”

“A lot of things go through him being that lone striker – he plays a lot for himself,” he added.

“I thought Rangers last season towards the end, finished very strongly with Scott Arfield and Jermain Defoe up front.”

Boyd explained: “It looked a totally different team. They looked like a team that was playing together.”

“Captain James Tavernier record from the penalty spot was unbelievable last season.”

“He brings so much more to the Rangers team going forward. He’s their outlet – he creates so many opportunities,” he commented.

“We’re all caught up in this modern-day full-back. When you see his stats from last year in terms of crosses and opportunities created, his goals – I know a lot of them came from the penalty spot but you still need someone to stand up there and take them.”
