Where’s Peter Lawwell’s unknown agent in another universe when you need him?

Alfredo Morelos has ‘turned down a lucrative move to China which would have earned him £10m a year after tax” according to a report.

SkySports said the Colombian is wanted by Chinese side Hebei China Fortune, who were “willing to match Rangers’ valuation of the striker, believed to be in excess of £15m”.

There was ‘no official bid made’, it states.

For some reason, Morelos, 23, who has yet to score against Celtic and was sent off five times last season for various acts of stupidity, has turned down the move.

It’s not the first time there has seemingly been interest from China in Morelos but, for some reason, the player remains at Ibrox.

Rangers reportedly turned down a multi-million pound bid from Beijing Renhe last year.

Cynics might look back at Peter Lawwell’s reaction in September 2011 when Rangers, a mere six months away from administration, were reportedly in a position to turn down a £9m bid for Nikica Jelavic.

The Celtic CEO said: “Last night we had a £29m bid for Hooper. From an unknown agent… from an unknown club… from another universe,” before laughing his head off.

Dave King’s Rangers seem to be in a financial bind too, with pyrrhic victories over Sports Direct’s Mike Ashley about to take their toll.

The amount of damages owed by Rangers for breach of contract is yet to be determined. But if Rangers had any way of getting £15m for any player, they’d be chasing him from Edmiston Drive to the airport with swear words and giant brushes.

Rangers continue to pile the pressure onto Celtic, as they sit joint top of the league before the season kicks off.
