The agent who handles Alfredo Morelos has left Rangers fans worried this afternoon after appearing to drop a hint about a potential transfer for the Colombian striker – with the Ibrox club recalling fellow forward Ryan Hardie from his loan spell at Livingston.
Morelos has been on fire this season and currently has 20 goals to his name for the current campaign, leading to speculation that he could be a target for more wealthier clubs during this month’s transfer window.
Earlier this morning, his agent Jonne Lindblom tweeted the remark ‘Exciting things are happening’ accompanied by an aeroplane emoji, before quickly deleting the comment from his timeline.
Moreover, when Gers fans enquired and started replying to him, Lindblom refused to give them any assurance that his client was staying put in Glasgow:

Right I’m now shitting myself. Morelos agent tweets about good transfer news, Ryan Hardie gets recalled. I’m no liking this fir a Monday

I can see why folk would get into a panic, Morelos agent tweeting what he did, no sign of Morelos in Tenerife yet, Defoe signed and Hardie recalled.
However, Gerrard said that Morelos is going nowhere in January. I can’t see the board undermining him like that. Calm doon.

Combined with Hardie’s recall, and the arrival of Jermain Defoe, some Rangers supporters could be forgiven for being slightly concerned, but what do you think?
