RANGERS insist in-demand double-act Ryan Kent and Alfredo Morelos will only be sold if their valuations are met.

The forwards are being tracked by other clubs during the current transfer window that will run until October 5.

Speculation has already been rife that both could be on their way during a crucial campaign for the Ibrox outfit as they attempt to derail Celtic’s bid for a historic 10 successive titles.

Leeds United are expected to return with an improved £14million offer for Kent, who scored the second goal in the 2-0 win over Kilmarnock at the weekend, according to the Daily Record.

Morelos was axed from the squad, as Scotzine reported, after boss Steven Gerrard took a stance against the Colombian hitman who netted 29 goals last season. French club Lille look set to renew their interest after reportedly having two bids rejected.

The Gers gaffer and the Ibrox board are adamant they will not be bullied and their star performers won’t be sold on the cheap.

Gerrard has refused to elaborate on whether Kent has a release clause in his contract, but Elland Road chief Marcelo Bielsa is an admitted admirer of the flanker and has already had a £10million proposal knocked back.

Rangers say there have been no fresh moves for their players.

Morelos’ advisers have made it clear to the Glasgow side the attacker wants to leave.

Newly-promoted West Brom are also keen and there is interest from Spain and Italy.
