RANGERS have taken former Southend defender Bilel Mohsni on trial. The 25-year-old, who made 80 appearances in three years at Southend, trained at Murray Park yesterday and will join Ally McCoist’s squad on their Highland tour, during which they will face Brora Rangers and Elgin City. The Frenchman had a spell on loan at Ipswich last season and previously interested West Ham. The club website reported: “No talks about any potential deal have taken place and the arrangement is simply a trial as things stand.”
Meanwhile, Rangers’ first competitive game of the season has been rearranged.
McCoist’s side will face Albion Rovers in the Ramsdens Cup first round at Livingston’s Energy Assets Arena on Sunday, 28 July with kick-off at 4.05pm.
