Rangers striker Morelos dreaming of playing in a ‘more competitive league’

Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos has admitted that he is aiming to play in a ‘much better, more competitive league,’ naming the Premier League and La Liga of particular interest to him.

The Columbia international striker has netted 17 goals in his 29 appearances in the Scottish Premiership this season where he is the league’s highest scorer going into the final round of fixtures.

Despite his awful disciplinary record which has seen him sent off five times in all competitions this season, his goalscoring form has seen him linked with moves to Leicester City, Marseille and Borussia Dortmund, and the 22-year-old has admitted that he wants to play in a better league than the Scottish top-flight.

“There is a lot of speculation about my possible departure, but there is nothing concrete yet,” he told the Herald.

“I know what there are many interested clubs asking and as soon as there is something official I will be announcing it.

“But I’m committed to Rangers just now. I’ve had a good season and many clubs are interested and hopefully everything will be done in the right way.

“I dream of playing in a much better, more competitive league. I look at the English Premier League and the Spanish League. The leagues in France and Italy are very big leagues too and very competitive.

“But I am very happy with what has been a great season with Rangers. I’ve scored a lot of goals and on Sunday I hope to end the season with another goal and be the top scorer in Scotland.

“I am really happy with everything that we have accomplished this year with Rangers. For me, it was an incredible season. I’ve scored nearly 30 goals and I also got an award from my fellow players too. Being recognised by them is one of the best moments of my career.

“Here in Glasgow I lead a very quiet life, the people here have welcomed me in the best way. It is a city with very welcoming people.

“The architecture is striking and there are many castles, it’s very different from Colombia and it’s a region with a lot of history. But I always miss my home in Colombia too.”
