Bilel Mohsni’s parting shot at Stuart McCall

Rangers FC

Bilel Mohsni opens up on his struggles under manager Stuart McCall at Rangers.

Departing Rangers defender Bilel Mohsni has told The Scottish Sun that he was not happy playing under manager Stuart McCall.

McCall was appointed the Gers boss in mid-March on a contract which runs out this summer.

The Scot was entrusted with the task of guiding the Glasgow giants to the Scottish Premiership, but he failed to do so.

Rangers reached the Premiership playoff final, but they lost it 6-1 on aggregate to Motherwell.

Tunisia international defender Mohsni was a bit-part player under the Scot, and he has now hit out at the former Scotland international midfielder.

“The new manager didn’t need me,” the 27-year-old told The Scottish Sun. “I am a big boy, I know it’s time to leave. He picked players he thought were the best. I respect that...

“I just need confidence and the manager to trust me… McCall just didn’t trust me because he didn’t play me. Every manager would pick a different team so I respect his choice.

“I wasn’t his No 1 defender, or No 2 or even No 3. I was No 4… I was probably lucky to get on the pitch for the last ten minutes of games. I just wish things were different but it’s too late now.”

Mohsni himself looks set to leave Rangers this summer, as his current contract with Rangers runs out at the end of the month.

The Tunisia international defender joined the Gers on a two-year contract in the summer of 2013.

The 27-year-old became the Glasgow giants’ eighth summer signing at the time and arrived as a free agent after leaving Southend United.
