Smith has refused to be drawn into speculation regarding the 23-year-old Colombia international, suggested that he could bring the striker to Ibrox.

Smith told The Scottish Sun when asked about a move for Morelos: “Suso's got all of his scouts out looking at things, but January is a long, long way at the moment and we've got a lot of games to play. Watch this space."

 

Good signing for Aston Villa?

Morelos is a very good striker who has been superb for Rangers since he moved to Ibrox in 2017.

The 23-year-old scores goals regularly and also has experience in the Europa League, and the Colombia international would be a very good signing for Villa.

True, the youngster needs to be given time if he joins the Villans in the January transfer window, but in the long run, he will come good and will deliver the goods.

Villa are doing well in the Premier League at the moment, but they could do with someone of Morelos’s quality and calibre.
