Former Rangers bad-boy Bilel Mohsni flying high in French top flight with Angers

The Tunisian is currently with Angers in France.

Last season for Glasgow Rangers ended in controversial circumstances.

Rangers failed spectacularly in their bid to earn promotion against Motherwell, losing 6-1 on aggregate to the Scottish Premiership side in the promotion/relegation play-off.

That tie is best remembered for what happened afterwards.

Lee Erwin of Motherwell, who went on to join Leeds United in the summer, went to shake hands with Rangers' notorious hothead Bilel Mohsni. The Tunisian ignored him and Erwin shoved him in the back. In classic Mohsni fashion, he kicked Erwin before leathering him with a left hook to the jaw.

A week later and Mohsni was handed a seven game suspension by the Scottish FA and was released by Rangers at the end of the season, as his contract expired in Glasgow.

After toying with the idea of retirement he was snapped up in August by recently promoted Ligue 1 side Angers - where he is surely enjoying himself.

He is not a regular in the first-team - in fact his last game still remains that fixture with Motherwell for Rangers.

But his new team Angers have been a revelation in the French top flight this season.

They are flying high in Ligue 1, sitting in third place behind AS Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain.

He may not be playing, but he is still a part of a squad making waves in the French top flight.

Considering how his spell with Rangers came to an end, that can only be viewed as an impressive landing.
