Bilel Mohsni: Former Southend defender has been on trial with Rangers

The 25-year-old defender has featured in pre-season friendly matches against Elgin and Brora Rangers in the last week.

McCoist has been busy strengthening his pool as the Scottish Division Two club prepare for the new campaign after winning promotion last season.

Rangers have already signed seven players this summer ahead of the end of the club's transfer embargo on 1 September.

"I thought Bilel did well again at Elgin and we'll obviously have a wee chat with him and his agent in the next 24 hours," McCoist said.

"We'll see if we can maybe take things a little bit further. No decision has been made yet and I want to hear his views as well.

"It would be good to know if he has enjoyed himself and if he'd like to stay. He has certainly impressed us."

Meanwhile, McCoist insists there is a possibility centre-half Boris Pandza could still join the growing Rangers pool following discussions with interim chief executive Craig Mather.

McCoist added: "Pandza is someone we're still very hopeful we can do something with. I know Craig has spoken to his agent.

"I have also spoken to Boris and he is keen to come. We're keen to have him too so there's a good chance we can get something done.

"There's still a lot of work to be done to get that deal over the line but I'm hopeful we'll know one way or the other what's happening in the next 24 to 48 hours."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
