He added, “I am very happy for Mohamed Salah, he is a player whose danger you feel and I felt that he scored a hat-trick.”


And the Egyptian star, Mohamed Salah, needed 6 minutes and 12 seconds to beat the Scottish Rangers with three, the fastest in the history of the Champions League, after he participated in the meeting as a substitute for Uruguayan striker Darwin Nunez in the 68th minute of the match.


The Egyptian pharaoh also set a new record in the European Champions League, after he became the most African player to score goals in the competition with 45 goals, surpassing the previous record recorded by the Ivorian elephant Didier Drogba, the former Chelsea star, who scored 44 goals.


Mo Salah became the most goalscorer with English clubs in the Champions League, with 38 goals, surpassing the previous record held by Argentine Sergio Aguero, former Manchester City star, and Didier Drogba, former Chelsea star, with 36 goals.
