Mohamed Salah's 22 minute cameo vs. Rangers shows he made a massive difference for Liverpool

Mohamed Salah produced a scintillating cameo appearance against Rangers, with his individual highlights making for sensational viewing.

Salah has had a quiet start to the new season by his high standards, scoring just five goals in all competitions before Wednesday's Champions League fixture.

And he had to contend with a place on the bench as Salah was among the substitutes for Liverpool's group stage game.

He eventually entered the fray in the 68th minute and delivered a stellar showing, making Champions League history in the process.

He scored the competition's fastest ever hat-trick, bagging three goals in six minutes and 12 seconds.

Salah poked home to score his first goal of the night, then finished smartly after killing the ball dead.

The Egyptian completed his hat-trick with a trademark goal from the right wing, curling home a delightful strike with his left foot.

Aside from his goals, the 30-year-old looked to be back to his best as he showed off his impeccable first touch and link-up play.

He also had a role in the build-up to Harvey Elliott's goal.

Jurgen Klopp hailed Salah's 'special' showing following Liverpool's 7-1 victory at Ibrox.

"Mo Salah? Special. Very important, the whole thing was. I can’t think of one player who didn’t have a good game," he said.

"It is a freak result and we don’t make more of it than we should but it’s the best we could have asked for.

"I couldn’t see Mo celebrating because he was always running in the corner but you could see with Darwin that it meant the world to him. The relief is big.

"All the effort is paying off. We all know when it is running for Mo he is absolutely exceptional. I hope for him everything works for him from now on, like I hope it does for us."

Salah is now on eight goals for the season as he'll look to improve his Premier League goal tally against Manchester City on Sunday.
