With Newcastle under new ownership it could finally be the time for Alfredo Morelos to get his move out of Ibrox.
Eight transfer windows have come ad gone since the Colombian arrived at Ibrox without a sniff of interest from elsewhere.
During that period Celtic have brought in nearly £90m from selling Moussa Dembele, Kieran Tierney, Kris Ajer, Jeremie Frimpong and Odsonne Edouard.
Those deals have sparked a craving around Ibrox to bring in ‘Dembele Dollars’ but despite the hype, outside of Scotland and Colombia there is absolutely no interest in the striker who is as well known for red cards and outbursts on the park as he is for scoring achievements.
Over the last 18 months the striker’s reputation has dived even further. This season he awarded himself an extra holiday to miss a Champions League qualifier away to Malmo, has scored just four goals and been dumped from the Colombian national squad.
Newcastle and Porto have been strongly linked with Morelos in the past, strangely enough the strongest interest always seems to be outwith the transfer window.

Who writes you’re papers, you can’t surely put Morelos in the same sentence as McGinn and Bale.
