Mo Salah scored a hat-trick with just six minutes and 12 seconds between his first and third goals, the quickest ever in UEFA Champions League history after he came on to put Liverpool on the verge of qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League.
The Reds dismantled their host, Rangers 7-1 at Ibrox on Wednesday evening.
The Egyptian’s goals as well as those from Darwin Nunez, Harvey Elliott and a brace from Roberto Firmino – helped the Reds recover from Scott Arfield’s strike to secure a third consecutive European win. They now need just a point from their final two group games to progress.
Klopp brought on Salah, Thiago Alcantara and Andy Robertson after Liverpool’s third goal – which hardly seems fair – in a bid to settle the result. The move worked a dream, as the former AS Roma star smashed in a brutal six-minute hat-trick to crush Rangers’ Champions League dream.
Elliott poked home a late goal to make it 7-1 and complete a remarkable result for Liverpool, which didn’t seem possible at the break.
Salah has now scored 38 times in 74 Champions League games with the hat-trick his first in the competition.
The 30 year old who joined Liverpool in July 2017 has now scored 161 times in 266 games across all competitions for the Reds.
