Salah scores six-minute hat-trick as Liverpool fire seven past Rangers

Mohamed Salah needed just six minutes to score an incredible hat-trick and lead Liverpool to a comprehensive 7-1 victory over Rangers in the Champions League.

The fans at Ibrox started the match in good spirits as the home side took the lead after 17 minutes, Scott Arfield scoring the Scottish side's first goal of the competition.

Unfortunately for Rangers the lead lasted just seven minutes, with Roberto Firmino restoring parity as the two teams headed into half-time level.

The second half was one-sided however, as the Reds needed just 10 minutes to take the lead through Firmino, who slotted home a Joe Gomez cross.

Darwin Nunez made it 3-1 after a fine assist from Firmino, before firing a clinical effort past Allan McGregor.

Enter Salah

That's when the Salah show began, with Jurgen Klopp introducing the forward in the 68th minute for Nunez.

The first of the Egyptian's three goals came in the 76th, firing home from a tight angle after collecting the ball in the penalty area.

Diogo Jota picked out Salah minutes later, who clipped his second past McGregor, before completing his six-minute hat-trick with a curled left-footed finish into the bottom corner.

The three goals were the fastest ever hat-trick in the Champions League, and there was still time for Harvey Elliott score a seventh, with Liverpool now needing just a draw from their next match with Ajax to advance to the next stage.
