A report in The Daily Record has linked Rangers forward, Alfredo Morelos with another move away from Scotland and this time it is to La Liga and to none other than footballing behemoths, Barcelona, yes, you read that correctly, Barcelona.

In a, less than subtle headline, The Record claims that Morelos is “tipped” for a move to the Nou Camp before going on to explain that the substance of the article is an interview with former Colombian national team manager, Jorge Luis Pinto.

Pinto claims that Morelos would be “the ideal striker to replace Luis Suarez” after the Uruguayan suffered a potential, season ending, lateral meniscus injury to his knee.

The Millonarios gaffer goes on to hail Morelos’ exploits in European football this season as the main reason why he would be the perfect man to cover for the enigmatic Suarez.

Do you want Alfredo Morelos to leave Ibrox this transfer window?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Celtic fans found the article too good an opportunity to miss and flooded the thread with a series of hilarious responses in what is surely the most unlikely transfer in Scottish football history.

This is a selection of posts that were suitable for print, needless to say, Hoops fans didn’t quite believe that Morelos is of suitable quality to sign for the Catalan giants.
