Mohsni's agent admits career in British football is over

Rangers FC Building

The Rangers defender's contract expires this summer, and he looks certain to be departing Glasgow.

Rangers' Bilel Mohsni may have played his last game in Britain according to quotes from his agent in the Guardian, as the fallout continues from the Gers' playoff defeat.

The defender was at the centre of a disciplinary storm following the loss to Motherwell, as he was first pushed by Lee Erwin after the final whistle, before retaliating by kicking and then punching the young striker, starting a brawl between the two sides.

The Tunisian was then punched himself by Well sub Fraser Kerr, with referee Craig Thomson red carding all three players.

The incident likely signals the end of Mohsni's career not just at Rangers, but in British football, with the 27-year-old being widely criticised in the press for his role in the flare-up.

Stuart McCall has already confirmed that the out-of-contract player won't be at the club next season, as quoted in the Mail, and Mohsni's agent, who the Guardian claim asked not to be named, has revealed that he may well have to leave the UK in order to find a new club.

“He won’t be staying at Rangers after that but I can’t tell you where he is going to end up because I don’t know," the agent is quoted as saying by the Guardian. "But he will leave the country, that’s for sure now.

“Do I worry that this will put other clubs off taking a chance on him? The clubs in the UK, yes. Abroad is a bit different but his reputation in the UK has been altered now. His career in Britain is over. But that is the way it is.”

Mohsni, who has had disciplinary problems in his two years in Scotland, may well look to return to France, where he began his footballing career.
