But Steven Gerrard has categorically denied that the Colombian international is for sale – and new sporting director Ross Wilson did the same yesterday when he spoke to media for the first time.

Now the Daily Record claim that Leicester – who  along with Crystal Palace have also been linked with the 23-year-old – are not interested in the former HJK Helsinki man.

Brendan Rodgers had been reportedly interested in Morelos in the summer, with some Rangers fans hoping he was on the wind-up because of his links to Celtic.

Wilson said yesterday: “We want our best players to stay here as long as they possibly can.

“We understand that like every other club in world football that there comes a point when players have to move on to something else for a variety of reasons.”
