John Barnes reckons Rangers are facing a setback if they allow Alfredo Morelos to leave the club - though any wantaway player could cause problems.

Morelos recently revealed he'd be happy to discuss a move away from Ibrox as Lille's bid to sign him hots up. The French outfit have already had an initial offer booted out but the striker is willing to leave Gers to play in a 'more competitive league'. 

Barnes, then, believes the Light Blues might have difficulty replacing the Colombian's goals should he move on. But he has warned that if the attacker does not end up leaving Gers this transfer window, he could be disappointed at a switch collapsing - which would bring its own problems. "Morelos leaving Rangers would be a huge setback for them because he scores a lot of goals," Barnes told BonusCodeBets. "He’s got some disciplinary problems as well – but he’s the one scoring the goals.

"Whether they can replace him, we don’t know. Rangers can’t do anything about that, with other clubs being financially stronger they can’t offer him enough money to stay, so if he decides to go then he’ll go.

"What they really want is players who are committed to the cause, you don’t want players who aren’t going to be happy at the club? Although they say they’ll do anything to keep him, if he’s not happy and he stays then that’s no good to anyone."
