Rangers insider calls £5m rated African striker links "absolute nonsense"

Rangers club insider Four Lads Had a Dream described claims that Ibrox boss Steven Gerrard “personally” enquired about Zamalek striker Mostafa Mohamed as “absolute nonsense”.

Rangers were heavily linked to the Egyptian forward in January with the Ibrox club looking to bolster their attack for the second half of the season.

That led to former Zamalek coach Milutin Sredojevic claiming Gerrard enquired about the player ahead of potentially making a move.

Steven Gerrard called me personally to ask about Mostafa Mohamed. He wanted to know what he was like as a player and at training,” said Sredojevic [Daily Record].

“But Zamalek made it very difficult for the transfer to go through because they don’t want to looked at as a selling club.

“So the transfer never happened, but Steven Gerrard was very keen indeed for the move to go through.

“Mostafa is a player with a bright future. He is an incredible talent who will of course go to Europe one day soon.”

However, Four Lads have disputed Sredojevic’s claims saying the Ibrox club have never even scouted the player and will not be used to add value to anyone.

The comments come despite Rangers being heavily linked with the Egyptian striker at the turn of 2020.
