Rangers include Alfredo Morelos in Champions League squad

Rangers have announced their squad for the UEFA Champions League qualifiers as they look to secure their place in the group stages.

According to Football Scotland, striker Alfredo Morelos has made it on the squad list despite speculations about his future at Ibrox, as well as injury doubts.

Striker Kemar Roofe, attacking midfielder Ianis Hagi and defender Filip Helander are some of the injury-hit names that haven’t made it to this squad.

The Light Blues are set to play Union Saint-Gilloise in the third-round qualifier of the Champions League on August 2.

Big Season Ahead

Giovanni van Bronckhorst is set to take charge of his first full season at the Ibrox Stadium. It is a massive campaign for the Dutch manager as he has the ambitions of a title challenge and going further in the Champions League.

However, first things first, they have to ensure that they secure group stage qualification in the biggest competition in domestic football.

After losing a close final against Eintracht Frankfurt, they would be charged up to make a huge push in the Champions League this season.

With the signings they have made, especially in the attacking positions, they definitely have the capacity to pull out some surprises in the Champions League.

Despite the absence of key players and the departure of two stars, on the positive side of things, the inclusion of someone like Morelos will definitely ease some nerves at the Ibrox Stadium where there has been genuine concern about the future of the star striker.
