Morelos thought at that time Lille had moved on and he scored two goals against St Mirren but the situation is now getting on top of him.
The good thing for Gerrard is that he has front-line options with the signings of Cedric Itten and Kemar Roofe, along with the return to fitness of Jermain Defoe.
Rangers, however, have shown that they won’t be bullied when it comes to the transfer market.
They have already shown their financial muscle by resisting offers from Lille and rejected a bid from Leeds United for Kent.
The Premier League new boys’ bid wasn’t much more than the £7m they agreed to pay Liverpool last summer and was also made up of a number of add-ons and future payments.
Gerrard, on Kent, confirmed: “It’s correct that we have rejected an offer. I’m not sure the exact day when it happened.
“A bid has arrived that has been strongly rejected and we move on. As simple as that, really.
“To be honest, I’m not really interested in reading into it whether they are going to come back or not. For me it’s just a strong message that he’s not for sale.
“Listen, I’m a realist. I’m not soft, I’m not stupid. I realise the power of Leeds now that they are a Premier League team. I understand and respect the power of all the Premier League teams and all the teams from leagues in the top five in the world. I get it.
