Rangers boss Steven Gerrard says it is down to him  “to keep heroes” at Ibrox as he confirms his desire to see Alfredo Morelos given an improved deal.

The Old Firm giants rejected a £3.75m bid from Bordeaux for the striker, who only signed a new deal 5 months ago.

Gerrard described the Colombian as “arguably our best player”, who Rangers are “trying to build a team around”.

“We can’t fight to keep our best players and then not reward them with what they are worth,” he said.

“That is one for the board to discuss, but I feel he should be looked after. My job is to manage the situation, tell him how much he is loved here.

“The fans sang his name non-stop last night. He is a big hero of theirs and it is my responsibility to try to keep heroes here for the fans“.
