I’m from Antwerp too, I didn’t know he was a local boy but I’m really happy to hear he is. If he keeps on improving he might save the national team from the post - De Bruyne abyss...

The only slight problem with that is ... He's Moroccan.

He was born in Belgium to Moroccan parents.

Well, that gives him two options. although having been selected to play for Morocco's under 23 team, it would seem he is more on their radar than Belgium's.

Great interview!

Can understand him taking a knee at of all places Millwall and to think that
there are people on this very forum thinking that standing up to racial bigotry
is a Marxist conspiracy. aniwall

Ridiculous assessment about his height during the scouting process, I always say
that Lionel Messi would never be successful on that basis.

Basically he's exactly the type of player I want at Rangers, long may it continue.

Spot on Andy, on all counts.

They all did, which I think was good, especially as the club made it clear they were not obliged to do so.
Agree on second point, too. It's unfortunate that the pseudo-marxists at Black Lives Matter UK have managed to associate themselves with taking the knee.

Absolutely no idea what you're talking about there, all I know is of the many black people
I've known who have had to wade through discrimination, bigotry and violence and have come
through with their heads held high, just like Ilias's parents.

Yes, I imagine Colin Kaepernick must be horrified at this turn of events.
