Celtic legend, BBC and BT Sports pundit Chris Sutton has got his fishing rod out this afternoon after Steven Gerrard was goaded into saying he wouldn’t sell Alfredo Morelos for £50m as reported in The Daily Record.

During Rangers recent AGM, Dave King claimed that the Colombian wasn’t for sale at any price and later stated that £40m wouldn’t be enough to tempt them into accepting a deal.

When Gerrard was asked if he would accept £40m for Morelos, he replied:

“No – and you can add another £10m on as well”.

Rather bold from a club needing in excess of £10m worth of funding to see out the season and for a player they paid less than £1m for.

Morelos has been vocal in his desire to leave Scottish football if a suitable offer comes along and in reality, few can believe that both King and Gerrard are serious in their claims.

Celtic Word On The Tweet 

Celtic fans joined in with Sutton to mock Gerrard’s claim on Twitter.

Morelos’ price tag has definitely risen since he first arrived in Scotland, who knows what it could be if £50m is his valuation without ever scoring against the champions…
