Stevie Smith opens up on infamous Fir Park meltdown

Former Rangers defender Stevie Smith has opened up on Bilel Mohsni’s meltdown after the 2015 playoff defeat by Motherwell – telling the Daily Record that it was “embarrassing.”
Moshni punched Motherwell’s Lee Erwin after being pushed from behind, sparking a brawl after the final whistle, before trying to resume hostilities outside Fir Park later.

Smith admitted that the result was “pathetic” and it only made the whole situation worse as Mohsni then later charged off the team bus after spotting Erwin outside.
“The manager (Stuart McCall) started speaking and as soon as the manager finished he stood up again and went again. He tried to get out of the changing rooms. I think there were three players on his back and he was a big, strong guy,” Smith told the Daily Record.

“He also completely lost the plot when he got on the bus because he’s seen Lee Erwin come out of a fire exit about a mile away.
“I don’t know how he has seen him and the next thing he’s off the bus. Stewards had to stop him.
“It was embarrassing because the result was pathetic and then you had all this stuff going on in the background.”
Mohsni was hit with a seven-game ban and left Rangers immediately afterwards after his contract ended.

He’s since bounced around a number of clubs but failed to settle at any and stay for any real length of time.
The Tunisian defender returned to Scottish football for a brief stint with Dundee United but struggled to make an impact at Tannadice before leaving last summer.
The end to Mohsni’s time at Ibrox summed up that whole season as the Gers lurched from crisis to crisis before the appointment of Mark Warburton and change in the boardroom.
