Ex-Rangers midfielder plays as club thrashed by Inter Milan

Former Rangers midfielder Lassana Coulibaly featured for Serie A side U.S. Salernitana as they suffered yet another league defeat, this time to current Scudetto holders Inter Milan.

Coulibaly’s side, who are currently rock bottom of the Serie A table, were thrashed at home 5-0 by the Milan giants and they have not won in the league since October 26 when they defeated Venezia 2-1.

Inter ran riot as they eased to a comfortable victory, with established players such as Ivan Perisic and Alexis Sanchez netting for the champions in the win.

Coulibaly has played 14 times for the Italian side this term, yet he hasn’t contributed either a goal or an assist in that time.

Among his teammates is former French international Frank Ribery, but even he can’t stop Salernitana from occupying the final spot in the table, and if they don’t get out of their rut, they will be playing Serie B football next season.

Coulibaly is well known to Rangers fans having joined the Ibrox side on loan from French club Angers in the summer of 2018.

The Malian impressed during the opening few months of Steven Gerrard’s tenure as the club qualified for the UEFA Europa group stages and played 30 matches scoring three times for the side before his loan spell ended.

His nomadic career has seen him return to France and ply his trade in Belgium and now Italy. The player’s next move may be an important one if he hopes to live up to the talent he showed during the first couple of months at Ibrox.

Meanwhile, Former Rangers player David Healy is chasing a fourth league title in a row with Linfield after an impressive run of form.
