Kenny Miller reveals missed opportunity for exit-bound Alfredo Morelos
Kenny Miller believes that Alfredo Morelos will have a sense of regret when he leaves Rangers as expected at the end of the season, as shared by the Scottish Sun.
Miller stated that his former teammate has allowed a missed opportunity in not making the most of his time at Ibrox, including the adulation of the supporters.
The Colombian striker is set to leave Glasgow in the coming weeks, having signed for the club back in June 2017.
His time at Ibrox has certainly been colourful, with plenty of goals and controversy on the pitch, but Miller feels his experience could have been enhanced by enjoying it more.
“The thing I ask about Alfredo is whether he could have been a little bit happier?” he stated. “He could have had a smile on his face more often and appreciated what he’s had at Rangers.
“He’s been at a fantastic football club where he’s been adored, pretty much from the day he walked in through the front door. That’s something he’ll miss in time.

“Who knows where he’s going to end up next, or what level of team or league he’s going to play in but he might not find the same adulation he’s had at Ibrox for the last six years.
“When you get older you think back on things a little bit more and I don’t think there is any doubt he’ll ask himself if he made the most of it at Rangers.
“Listen, I hope he goes on and does well but Rangers is a special club and Ibrox is a special place.”
Will the grass be greener?
The next step for Morelos looks quite uncertain, but he will have offers.
It is clear that he will miss Rangers, more than the club will miss the ‘current version’ of the striker who is unfortunately a shadow of the force who was instrumental in the 2021 title as well as becoming the Gers’ highest-ever European goalscorer, eclipsing Ally McCoist in the process.
Will he get an offer in England, maybe mid-table in Spain or even the MLS?
All that remains to be seen but Miller does have a point. Too often, he was scowling or sulking when things weren’t going his way and even sometimes when they were.
It will be a sad end to a very decent Rangers career over the next few weeks for a player who was loved at Ibrox, even if the feeling wasn’t always reciprocated.
He knows the stature of the club, but will soon realise just how good things were.
