Bilel Mohsni's career in Britain is over after he started a mass brawl in Rangers' play-off defeat to Motherwell at Fir Park, according to his agent.

The Tunisia international appeared to punch and kick Motherwell's Lee Erwin after the final whistle, causing a brawl that saw two Motherwell players and Mohsni receive red cards.

The trouble then continued in the tunnel and reports have even suggested Mohsni waited outside the ground to confront Erwin, being restrained from leaving the team coach to continue his grievance with the Motherwell man.

The player, who joined the club in 2013, is out of contract this summer and Stuart McCall has left the defender in no doubt that he won't be asked back at Rangers next season.

His actions have drawn so much criticism that his agent, who wishes not to be named, believes that this will be the end to his career in Britain.

Leaving Britain

In an interview with the Press Association he said: “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. 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.”

Police investigation

And things could get worse for the player, after Police Scotland announced they would be looking into the incident and may bring criminal charges against those involved.

Mohsni has been a controversial character in Britain and first caused a stir when he refused to play for Southend in 2012, believing he could play at a higher level.


He eventually agreed to play again for the Shrimpers, who turned down a £150,000 bid from the Hammers just 10 months before he was eventually released, gaining a reputation as a loose cannon.

Motherwell may also be lucky to escape action, as their fans set the scene for a feisty afternoon at Fir Park. Rangers captain Lee McCulloch was hit by a flag whilst on the touch line and a flare was thrown from the stand after Marvin Johnson scored the first goal.
