Glasgow Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos has emerged as a transfer target of former Ibrox boss Pedro Caixinha and his Cruz Azul side, according to the Scottish Sun.

The Portuguese manager, widely considered a flop in his time with the Gers, now heads up the task of trying to get the Mexican outfit back as not just title challengers, but a side who can go on and reclaim the crown.

In order to do that he needs to sign a striker who will be a constant source of goals, which is where the Rangers forward could well come into play.

Morelos found the net 30 times with the Gers last term, but his disciplinary problems are becoming more of a concern for Steven Gerrard, who seems to be running out of patience with his star man to the extent that he could cash in on him and focus his attentions with someone a little less hot-headed.

The Rangers striker was one of the best players in Scottish football in the campaign just concluded, but he was dismissed no fewer than five times over the course of the season, with his discipline costing the Glasgow giants dearly on occasions.

Morelos was expected to spend the summer representing his country at the Copa America that is currently going on in Brazil, but such is the problems he has with his temperament, he has been dropped from their squad.

Caixinha was the man to take the Colombia international to the Gers, when he signed him from HJK for a fee believed at the time to be £1 million, and he could be the person to offer the 22-year-old an escape route if his days at Ibrox are about to come to an end.

Cruz Azul have been throwing plenty of money around this summer, which the Rangers hierarchy are sure to be aware of, which will help them get a decent return on the forward.
