Rarely before has a three minute substitute appearance in a friendly for Colombia attracted so much attention.

And rarely before has there ever been such a concentrated effort to sell a footballer.

Alfredo Morelos is the man in question.

With 17 SPFL goals this season the Colombian is on course to match the recent efforts of Liam Boyce and Louis Moult.

Ross County and Motherwell were happy to accept offers from English Premier League sides for their strikers but they didn’t have to account for the Moussa Dembele Factor.

Celtic’s £20m fee from Lyon has resulted in complete delusion for all associated with Ibrox, Steven Gerrard can’t go a week without discussing mythical bids.

In New Zealand Managing Director Stewart Robertson told fans that £20m would be the starting point for Morelos bids.

It’ll be a long wait for that bid with Robertson having to balance the books again with Close Brothers becoming as demanding as Gerrard is to fund next season’s delusions.
