Rangers FC 'make offer' for the next Mo Salah


Rangers FC are hoping that this is the season.

After nine years of watching their rivals Celtic take the spoils in the Scottish Premiership, Steven Gerrard's side will be dreaming that they can bring the trophy back to Ibrox.

A 3-0 victory over St Mirren on Sunday saw the Gers move two points clear of the Bhoys in the league table, level on points with Hibernian and Ross County.

But while it's incredibly early days, supporters will be hoping that their early performances could be a sign of things to come.

If Rangers are to last the pace then they'll be hoping to do some more transfer business.

First team additions are still being targeted, while there's also a very close eye on potential outgoings with Alfredo Morelos attracting plenty of back pages in Scotland.

But for every transfer saga that plays out over a number of months, there's a story that appears to surface from nowhere.

Mahmoud Saber is a player who is far from a household name in Scotland, or even Europe.


After leaving Egyptian giants Al Ahly, the 18-year-old winger is seeking his next opportunity to propel his career to the highest level.

Reports from the Daily Record have described him as 'a wonderkid', while also comparing him to Liverpool talisman Mo Salah.

No pressure there, then.

After being linked with Stoke City two years ago, the winger has spoken out about the interest in his services, claiming that Rangers, Benfica and Valencia are among the clubs interest.

Quoted by the Daily Record, Saber said: "Because I have never signed a professional contract with Al-Ahly, I am deemed an amateur player and can sign for a new club for nothing.


"I have offers from Rangers in Scotland, Valencia in Spain and Benfica from Portugal as well as a big club in Tunisia. I will make my decision soon.

"I have European agents sorting my future and I hope to be in a position to sign for my new club shortly."

GIVEMESPORT'S Phil Spencer says...

By all accounts, Mahmoud Saber is a very talented lad.

It's claimed that he scored eight goals and racked up 30 assists for Al Ahly's youth side to help them win the Egyptian youth league.


After leaving his homeland, it seems that he has his sights set on a career at the highest level.

Effectively a free transfer, Rangers could do much worse than taking a look at the 18-year-old, as after all, he could be a real star in the future.

For supporters who are looking over this one, it's a deal that should perhaps be taken with a pinch of salt until more details emerge.
