Former Rangers defender Bilel Mohsni is set to be included in Csaba Laszlo’s Dundee United squad for the fixture against Queen of the South on Tuesday.

The Paris-born Tunisian international has been training with the Tannadice outfit since last week and is understood to have impressed Laszlo.

And the 30-year-old ex-Southend United and Ipswich Town centre half could face the Doonhamers as a trialist, or as a United player if a short-term deal can be thrashed out in time.

Mohsni is understood to have been recommended to the Terrors boss by newly-appointed scout Paul Sturrock, who was Southend manager during Mohsni’s time at Roots Hall.

Mohsni, who made 44 appearances for Rangers, left Ibrox in a wave of controversy in the close season nearly three years ago.

The central defender was hit with a seven-game ban after he punched and kicked Motherwell’s Lee Erwin after the Steelmen had beaten Rangers in the play-offs in May 2015.
