Rangers director of football Mark Allen has revealed he has no concerns about Alfredo Morelos’ happiness at the club.

Allen insists the Colombian striker isn’t affected by the negative publicity surrounding his disciplinary issues this season.

The 22-year-old player’s disciplinary record has been heavily criticized after he picked up 13 yellow cards and three red cards, this season but Allen argues the criticism won’t affect his future at the club.

“I certainly don’t detect that,” the ex-Manchester City academy chief said according to Daily Mail:

Rangers were kicked out after losing against Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup Quarterfinals and will only focus now on the league.

“He is very resolute. You have seen him, he goes down and gets back up again.”

“The point I am trying to make is, do you think we need to give him a bit of a fairer ride in terms of actually looking at some of the other stuff around that and not just what Morelos has allegedly done?”

“We have no issue with Alfredo. He trains well, he is popular with his teammates, popular with everyone within the football club, and sometimes I think he gets a bit of a rough ride.”
