Bilel Mohsni: Celebrates scoring for Rangers

The French-Tunisian defender believes matches against Dunfermline and Airdrie this season have been overly-physical.

Mohsni broke his nose against the Pars in November, skipper Lee McCulloch needed stitches in a head wound, Richard Foster was sidelined for weeks with an ankle problem and Andy Little suffered a broken cheekbone.

Last week Mohsni was shown a second yellow card at Airdrie after he vented his frustration at some challenges during the match.

He told Rangers' website: "Dunfermline and Airdrie were both games where players hit us and gave a lot of injuries to our side.

"In the first game, Jig had stitches, I broke my nose and Fozzy and Andy have just come back from that match.

"After the Airdrie game, I was happy we had won but I was a little bit upset as we had taken a lot of kicks and had been given a lot of free-kicks because there were lots of fouls.

"Their right-back swore at me so I swore at him back which I know was stupid but I did it. Their manager walked straight to me and was swearing at me so I swore back at him too.

"I remember Nicky Clark and Ian Black had taken two bad tackles in that game and I was shocked.

"I can understand why they would react to that because we are humans. Sometimes you are weak and you react.

"I am not being arrogant when I say teams can't beat us because we are beating them. We have proved this to everyone already.

"But people know after the Dunfermline game the way to play against us is the way they did back then. I think the referees have to protect us.

"Blackie reacted against Airdrie, I reacted and other players will react in the future because we are human beings."

think Liverpool should start trying alternative therapy now, given that Sturridge's hips and knees are apparently unfathomable to modern medicine. Voodoo, acupuncture, healing oils, rolling in the snow after a hot bath, its all got to be worth a go now.
