Stuart McCall: Controversial Rangers defender Bilel Mohsni won't be at Ibrox next season

Stuart McCall says Bilel Mohsni won't be playing for Rangers next season after his violence against Motherwell.

Rangers manager Stuart McCall says controversial defender Bilel Mohsni will not be at the club next season, as quoted by the Daily Mail.

Rangers' hopes of promotion ended on Sunday with a 3-0 defeat at Motherwell, meaning they lost their play-off final clash 6-1 on aggregate.

It was a humiliating defeat for Rangers and manager McCall, but the unsavoury scenes at the end of the game have grabbed the headlines.

Hothead defender Mohsni has long been regarded as a loose cannon at Ibrox, and he lived up to that billing by punching Motherwell striker Lee Erwin and then kicking him to earn a red card after the final whistle.

The scenes continued down the tunnel and even outside the stadium as Tunisian defender Mohsni continued to be a liability not only on the pitch but off it as well, clashing with opposing players after the defeat.

The 27-year-old is out of contract this summer, and after his latest controversy, manager McCall told the Daily Mail that it's almost assured that Mohsni won't be a Rangers player next season.

"Hand on heart, I’ve not seen it," said McCall. "I was down the tunnel and then heard the roar so came running back. I spoke to referee Craig Thomson and I believe there were three red cards given after the game - one to ourselves and two to Motherwell."

"If what you are telling me about the incident is true, then it’s obviously unacceptable and totally disgraceful. No-one can condone that sort of behaviour. Bilel’s contract is up but that’s totally unacceptable.  I don’t know if the club can take any action against him but I don’t think there is any doubt he won’t be at the football club next season," he added.

Given his poor disciplinary record at Ibrox and error-prone defending, few Rangers fans would be sad to see Mohsni go - and his controversial incident with Erwin looks to be his final contribution as a Rangers player following McCall's admission.
