Rangers boss Gerrard admits Morelos head turned by Lille, Everton links

Rangers boss Steven Gerard admits Alfredo Morelos has had his head turned by other clubs.

The 24-year-old Colombian has been linked with Lille, West Bromwich Albion, Newcastle United and Everton.

Speaking after his side were knocked out of the Europa League by Leverkusen, Gerrard said of Morelos: "I don't know, I can't control what goes on outside.

"Everyone knows he's had his head turned, for sure. There's no denying that.

"But we just move forward. My focus is on the team and the players that want to be here and my focus is certainly on [Rangers' next game against] St Mirren.

"If a bid comes that the board like and are interested in, and the player tells me face to face he wants to go then we'll see what happens."
