View: No nasty surprises this January as Ross Wilson gives fans what they want to hear
The January transfer window is always a nervy one for Rangers fans and this one is set to be no different with rumours starting up about Alfredo Morelos and Glen Kamara already.
It’s the most important January window for a long time, too, with Rangers joint top of the Premiership and in with a great chance of qualifying from the Europa League group stage.
Gerrard has already said he is “100% sure” that Alfredo Morelos is going nowhere, and the in-form striker is absolutely key to landing the title this season.
Now, new sporting director Ross Wilson has backed up Gerrard and said the words that all Rangers fans are wanting to hear.
As quoted in the Scottish Sun, Wilson was asked if he could give a categorical assurance that Rangers did not have to sell their biggest players.
“Categorically,” Wilson replied, erm, categorically.
“We want our best players to stay here as long as they possibly can. We understand that like every other club in world football that there comes a point when players have to move on to something else for a variety of reasons.”
Rangers fans know that Morelos will be on the move before too long, possibly as early as the summer.
He wants to play in the Premier League and with clubs like Aston Villa and Crystal Palace eying up the prolific hitman, it’s naive to think that there won’t be a big push in the summer.
It could be the right time for Rangers, too. Morelos is on fire at the moment and a season in which he helps land the Premiership title for Rangers would boost his value massively.
The 23-year-old has already scored 22 goals this season – who knows what number he might end up on, but it’s one that will have the big sides rubbing their hands and opening their wallets.
If he does help land the title this summer, Morelos will go with the blessing of all but the most narrow-minded Rangers fans.
That he’s categorically not going anywhere in January is great news.
