Departing Rangers defender Bilel Mohsni has told The Scottish Sun that Stuart McCall was trying to "kill" his career.
The 27-year-old Tunisia international was not impressed with McCall’s comments following his dismissal against Motherwell in the second leg of the Scottish Premiership playoff final last month.
Mohsni responded to a push by Lee Erwin by aiming a kick and punch at the striker. He then tussled with Motherwell's unused substitute Fraser Kerr.
The brawl took place towards the end of the game, which Mothwell won 3-0 to wrap up a 6-1 aggregate victory over the Gers and retain their top-flight status.
Mohsni, who has now been banned for seven games for the incident, has taken a swipe at McCall, who has been replaced at Ibrox by Mark Warburton.
“When I heard what he said about me after the game, I thought ‘Wow, wow, wow’,” the former Southend United defender told The Scottish Sun.
“He said that I was ‘disgraceful’ and that I wouldn’t be at the club next season. My contract was finished, so I didn’t have a contract anyway.”
“I don’t like it when managers or players try to KILL other players. I don’t understand,” added Mohsni. “If you ask me about any player, I will talk about their qualities.
“But him? He just tried to kill my career. You don’t have the job, so why are you speaking about me? Respect the player. To say I was a disgrace? This is a big word.”
Mohsni himself has left Rangers after two years at Ibrox following his move on a free transfer in the summer of 2013.
