Douglas Park has hinted that Alfredo Morelos is demanding wages to sign a new Rangers deal that currently seem to be out of the club’s reach.
The Colombian striker’s deal expires at the end of the season and despite efforts from the club to offer him a new one, he’s still not signed it.
By what Park said at the AGM on 6 December, it will take something remarkable for Morelos to stay at the club beyond the summer.
“The board tried to negotiate and sometimes if the terms are unattainable you have to accept you have done your best,” Park said, as quoted by the Daily Record.
There’s a very good chance that he may not even feature for the club again with the January transfer window now around the corner.
This month is the last chance Gers have to cash in on him as they will get nothing for him if he leaves on a free next summer.

Michael Beale has previously worked with the player who’s made 243 appearances for the Ibrox club, but knows that it would make financial sense to sell him in January as he does not seem keen on lowering his demands.
Rangers cannot afford to placate to every player’s whims and fancies as it sets the wrong precedent and gives too much power in the hands of the players.
If Morelos does not sign a new deal, it makes little sense to give him game time and it’s time Ross Wilson starts offering him to clubs as soon as possible.
