Alfredo Morelos has been warned that the "grass isn't always greener" amid major doubts over his Rangers future.

The striker's deal is up at the end of the season. The general consensus is that the Colombian will depart Ibrox after five years.

He's currently free to speak to any potential suitors under freedom of contract rules.

Michael Beale has managed to get a tune out of the forward in recent weeks after what was a very poor start to the campaign. He bagged a brace in midweek against Hearts.

However, with no breakthrough in contract talks, Morelos' future looks to lie away from the club.

But Kenny Miller reckons a new challenge may not be the 26-year-old's best bet.

And he has drawn a comparison to Odsonne Edouard's career since leaving Celtic in 2021.

He wrote in the Daily Record: "I don’t know what Michael Beale or the board are thinking when it comes to Alfredo’s future.

"But if the player himself is thinking about leaving the club, I’d urge him to be careful. Because the grass isn’t always greener. Alfredo is absolutely adored by the fans at the club.

"Look at Odsonne Edouard who left Celtic. He’s a very good player and was a top striker in Scotland. He’s gone to the Premier League in England with Crystal Palace and finding himself in and out of the team.

"I know for a fact, that’s just not Alfredo. He won’t be able to deal with not being the go-to guy. Right now, he’s got that at Rangers. But it still might not be a guarantee that the manager wants to keep him.

"Because for the club to move forward and be successful, it can’t ALL be about Alfredo. Michael will know that. Ultimately, his job is to get Rangers back to winning trophies. And with Alfredo in the team for the last five years, they’ve won a league and a Scottish Cup. That’s not enough."
