Bilel Mohsni is confident of taking Sevco into the Champions League.
Despite obvious obstacles such as requiring three years of audited accounts and Ally McCoist’s managerial record the former Southend star believes that his move to the Third Division champions is simply a stepping stone to playing in the game’s greatest competition.
While former Rangers directors speculate about administration before Christmas Mohsni is much more optimistic about what the future has in store.
On the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s ‘I have a dream’ speech it appears that the Algerian has contracted a dose of the Charles Green’s with the former Ibrox chief executive claiming that he’d be at Ibrox until he hears the Champions League anthem.
“I was in France when we had our first league game of the season against Brechin and when I saw there were 44,000 fans at the game it was unbelievable,” he told the club website.
“Everyone in the squad is looking forward to playing together and we want to play in our stadium and try to do well for our fans. I am looking forward to that.
“When my agent told me Rangers were interested in me and they were in the third tier of Scottish football, I wasn’t sure it would be that good.
“But this is a massive club and I want to be part of its history. It would be very good to help them back to the top and to perhaps get into the Champions League again.”
Strict UEFA rules designed to prevent clubs from dumping debt insist that only clubs with three years of audited accounts are able to play in their competitions.
