Mohamed Salah’s quick-fire hat trick at Ibrox changed the course of the Champions League.
The Egyptian stood out after starting the game on the bench, scoring four of Liverpool’s seven goals against Rangers in the final 15 minutes. Mohamed Salah entered the game after 68 minutes and scored the first of his three goals after 75 minutes.

The Liverpool attacker added two more goals six minutes and 12 seconds later to clinch the Champions League era’s quickest hat trick. Bafétimbi Gomis previously held the record, scoring three goals in eight minutes to help Lyon defeat Dinamo Zagreb in 2011.

Mohamed Salah’s record-breaking performance was greatly aided by Diogo Jota, who provided assistance on all three of his teammate’s goals. Since Franck Ribery’s efforts to lay off Mario Gomez to score three goals for Bayern Munich against Basel in March 2012, that hasn’t happened in ten years.
Mohamed Salah had received criticism for his season’s poor start, which by his high standards was disappointing. His struggles had paralleled those of his team, but he was able to assist Liverpool in almost reaching the knockout stages by increasing his season total from five to eight.
With his three goals, the 30-year-old has now scored 38 goals in the Champions League for Liverpool. With that amount, the English club has scored more goals than players like Wayne Rooney and Raheem Sterling, who earlier scored a hat-trick in just 11 minutes for Manchester City.
After Mohamed Salah’s historic appearance, Klopp told BT Sport that Salah played a different position, a bit more inside, but of course, he is an excellent player as they all know and today he demonstrated it. The Liverpool manager continued by saying that although this has nothing to do with the City game, it is still better to gain some momentum and confidence, which they must demonstrate consistently, and although he doesn’t have to mention it constantly, he frequently gets asked.
On the triumph, Virgil van Dijk also stated that It’s not bad to win 7-1 in that situation and everyone anticipated them to win on the outside, but they focus on one game at a time. He said that they are aware that this is a trying time and in their final two matches in Europe, Liverpool will travel to Amsterdam to face Ajax before visiting Napoli, a team that has a spotless record so far this season and recently defeated the Reds by a score of four.
