Rangers were right to turn down Bordeaux’s £3.75 million bid for ‘little gem’ Alfredo Morelos, says Hugh MacDonald.
The Ibrox side threw out an offer for the 22-year-old Columbian ahead of last week’s Europa League clash against Maribor.
Former Sunderland boss Gus Poyet, who manages the Ligue 1 outfit, is keen to sign the Rangers forward.
But Hugh insists Gers boss Steven Gerrard is right to hold onto the striker despite growing interest in his star man.
Hugh said: “Bordeaux are talking just shy of £4 million for Alfredo Morelos.
“But what would Rangers get with that money to replace Morelos because in the present market that gets you half of Martin Waghorn.”
He added: “I think he’s a little gem that could be shone and he’s better than what people seem to think.”
Morelos, who made the switch from HJK Helsinki to Glasgow in a £1 million move, was the second top scorer in the SPFL last season.
