Timed at six minutes and 12 seconds, Liverpool's Mohamed Salah came off the bench to score the fastest Champions League treble in a 7-1 victory over Rangers.

Mohamed Salah celebrates hattrick against Rangers

Liverpool recorded what was their second-most convincing win in what could be regard as a terrible start to the season, with Mohamed Salah scoring the fastest hat-trick in Champions League history as trounced Rangers 7-1 at Ibrox.

The Egyptian who failed to record a single goal when Liverpool scored this much in a single game this season - a 9-0 Premier League win over Bournemouth - came off the bench to score three second-half goals in just six minutes and 12 seconds.

This hattrick makes Salah the player to scored in the shortest possible time in a Champions League game, surpassing Bafetimbi Gomis' 8 mins hattrick in Lyon's 7-1 win over Dinamo Zagreb in 2011.

Salah's treble is timed at six minutes and 12 seconds. So far, Mike Newell still holds the record for quickest ever 'perfect' hat-trick, scoring with his left foot, right foot and head in a spell of only nine minutes.
