Report: Bilel Mohsni likely to leave Rangers, foreign clubs allegedly interested

Rangers defender Bilel Mohsni is reportedly set to leave the club this summer.

Rangers defender Bilel Mohsni is set to leave Ibrox this summer, and could make a move to the Bundesliga, according to the BBC.

Mohsni, 27, had spent most of his career in the French lower leagues before joining Southend United in 2010, and after a loan spell with Ipswich Town, Mohsni made the move up to Scotland with Rangers in 2013.

The Tunisian international enjoyed a productive first season at Ibrox, scoring 11 goals in 34 games, having even played up front at times.

This season though, Mohsni has played more a bit-part role, scoring just once in 21 games in a frustrating campaign for Rangers and the player himself.

Now, whilst Rangers are prepraring for their play-off games against Queen of the South, transfer speculation is starting to surround Mohsni.

The BBC report that Mohsni will leave Ibrox when his contract expires this summer, and have released quotes from an unnamed source close to the player, who suggests that a move abroad could be on the cards.

"Bilel is out of contract at the end of the season and it doesn't look like he is going to stay at Rangers with the way things are going," the source is quoted as saying.

"There has been contact with clubs, not only in Germany. He is an international player so he attracts interest. There is nothing definite at the moment, whether it's from Germany, France or anywhere else. He is still undecided about what he is going to do in the future."

"He would have loved to stay at Rangers but the way things are, he doesn't seem to be welcome. It's not like he wants to move on but he is out of contract and has to look at his options. However, Bilel won't sign anywhere until the season ends in Scotland," they added.

With 12 players out of contract at Rangers this summer, it appears that Mohsni could be the first of those 12 to leave the club this summer - with more departures expected.
