Gerrard told The Daily Record about Morelos and Tavernier: “We’ll find out in the coming days. I predict that a bid will land for one of my players.

“I think you'll see some movement out. There's some offers swirling about for certain individuals, so there will be news broke over the seven or so days that are left.”

Gerrard added: “I want to keep as many good players as I can but I’m also not stupid enough to realise that if a bid comes for a player and the board accept it then it’s a tough position for me to be in. I’d give my opinion but at the end of the day we’ve all got bosses haven’t we?”

Potential big blow for Rangers

Morelos is one of the best strikers in the Scottish Premiership, while Tavernier is arguably the best right-back in the division.

Both the striker and the right-back are key figures at Rangers, and if they leave this summer, then the Gers will find it really hard to compete with Celtic for the Scottish Premiership title this season.

True, Rangers could get a lot of money for the 23-year-old and the 27-year-old, but there is no time for them in this window to find suitable replacements for either player.

For the Gers to have a successful season, they have to make sure that they keep hold of both Morelos and Tavernier.
