Morelos has scored six goals in 10 matches under Steven Gerrard and earlier this week received his first call-up to the Colombian national team.

He said earleir this month: “My ambition is to play for Colombia at a World Cup and give the people of my country a lot of joy - I hope the selectors have been watching me.”

Morelos was one of three Gers praised by Ufa boss Sergei Tomarov after the match at Ibrox last week.
