Following a two-year spell with Pirates, Sredojevic spent four months in charge of Zamalek in the latter stages of 2019, guiding the club to the 2018/19 Egypt Cup. 

The Serbian has now claimed that, during his time in Egypt, Scottish giants Rangers were interested in signing star player Mostafa Mohamed, and that discussions were held with Gerrard over a possible deal.

"Rangers manager Steven Gerard wanted Mostafa Mohamed," Sredojevic told Ontime Sports TV channel, as reported by KingFut.

"But Mostafa has to stay at Zamalek because it isn't an institution built on marketing and selling players, he has to give his best to the club."

The 50-year-old was unveiled as Zambia's new manager in February, when he signed a two-year deal with the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations champions.
