Dodds urges Rangers to ‘cash in’ on hothead Morelos after Old Firm sending off

Billy Dodds has urged Rangers to ‘cash in’ on hothead forward Alfredo Morelos.

Morelos was sent-off in the first-half of Sunday’s 2-1 Old Firm derby defeat to Celtic, the Colombian’s fifth dismissal of the season.

Interest was reportedly high for Morelos during the January transfer window, with the likes of Leicester City and Borussia Dortmund keen, though Rangers manager Steven Gerrard was reluctant to lose his top goal scorer.

The 22-year-old has hit 27 goals in all competitions this season, but former Gers striker Dodds insists the club should cut their losses on the short-tempered forward after another showing of ill-discipline.

‘I think Rangers have got to cash in on Morelos now,’ Dodds told the BBC.

‘The boy obviously doesn’t listen. If you’re in the Celtic dressing room, you’re saying ‘noise him up get I his face and see if he reacts.

‘You’re not telling me that Steven Gerrard has not said to him ‘do not react under any circumstances’. So what do you do? Do you just keep accepting it, or do you take your money and run?’
