Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos is in line to make his international debut for Colombia after being called up to the senior squad for the first time.

Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos has received his first call-up to Colombia's senior squad.

The 22-year-old has been included in a 23-man party for the upcoming matches against Venezuela and Argentina during the September international break.

Colombia Under-20s boss Arturo Reyes, who has selected Morelos for his team on six occasions, is taking charge for both games after the Colombian FA decided not to renew Jose Pekerman's contract.

The forward joined Rangers from HJK Helsinki for £1m in June 2017 and has gone on to score 24 goals in 53 games for the Scottish Premiership club.

Morelos, who has netted six goals already this season, was linked with a £3.75m move to French club Bordeaux earlier this summer, but Gers turned the offer down.
