Alfredo Morelos insists he will only leave Rangers 'through the front door' amid interest from Lille in Ligue 1.

The Colombian striker opened up on his relationship with manager Steven Gerrard as well as the quality in the Scottish Premiership which has allowed him to flourish. 

Lille have been credited with interest in Morelos, and reportedly had a bid of around €13million booted out by the Ibrox outfit as it 'didn't come close' to what Gers want for their star man. Lille have since splashed out on Gent striker Jonathan David but remain keen on Morelos.

El Buffalo, though, admits that while he would consider a move away from Glasgow this season, it would have to be the right deal for both himself and the club. And he wants to make any such switch in the right way - as transparent as possible. "What I have done here is important to me," he told Colombian publication WinSports TV

"I have a good relationship with the coach, he has supported me. I've always responded by playing well, by sweating for my jersey. They love me very much here. Here the league is very strong, it is very physical, each ball goes to death. It suited me well because of my playing characteristics, I have been able to take advantage of it."

On Lille interest, he went on: "There are options for me that attract a lot of attention, I have not reached any agreement with the club, if my exit [at Gers] is allowed, I want to do it through the front door. We are expecting positive things, when the news is given we will all know, but for now we are waiting. There is nothing concrete in France."

We told recently how Steven Gerrard admitted Morelos' head had been turned by talk of a move to Lille. Clubs in England and Italy have also been credited with an interest in the player recently, including Everton.
