Mr Gerrard and the cost of failure

I can fully understand if Mr Gerrard is feeling a bit of pressure today.

My information is that the Sevco High Command has told him what defeat tomorrow will mean for this squad.

Quite simply if the champions prevail then players will have to be sold.

As reported earlier a dignified delegation had been dispatched to the Square Mile.

Sadly, they found no doors open to them.

Consequently, cash will have to be raised by player sales.

The reasoning in the Blue Room is that if the title race is over by tomorrow afternoon then there is nothing to be gained by holding onto sellable assets.

To that end, Señor Alfredo José Morelos Aviléz could be on his way out.

I’m told that Huddersfield Town is poised to put in a firm offer.

My information is that it is £6.5m rising to £8m with add-ons.

If the move goes through, then the South American will be the English club’s highest earner.

There has also been some interest from Cardiff City and Crystal Palace in the Colombian.

If the striker is sold, then the money will come in handy for sure.

In the week before Christmas General Ashley had his legal people serve papers on the basket of assets regarding Sevco’s imaginative retail operation.

That could prove very costly for the six-year-old club.

So, there is a lot riding on the result at Ibrox tomorrow.

Moreover, Mr Gerrard knows it.
