When Rangers signed Ianis Hagi on loan from Genk in January, there isn’t a Bear everywhere who could feign their early excitement about the attacking midfielder.
Far from the crowd the registering like a marquee player of old, there has been a real acceptance amongst the support that this child is an important talent and will require some time.
But even the most critical of bluenoses have to be amazed by Hagi’s incredible start to life at Ibrox.
The 21-year-old playmaker has shown his class already at Ibrox — particularly in Europe — and the club’s fans are already excited about the possibility of signing up Hagi in the summertime.
The youngster is why Rangers were in the hat for the past 16 Europa League draw and the bears large;y have him to thank for the visit to Germany.
Hagi’s motivated strike against Braga in Ibrox not only exhibited his fantastic gift to the Rangers fans, but it prompted one of Ibrox’s greatest ever comebacks.
Ianis Hagi would subsequently go on to find another as the one time European Golden Boy nominee hit on a deflected free-kick to win the match 3-2 on the night.
It had been his defense-carving looped pass on the top of this Braga defense to Ryan Kent which helped us run out 1-0 winners at the away leg also.
Hagi’s performances over the two legs caught the eye of governing body FIFA, who tweeted concerning the former Fiorentina midfielder at the week [FIFA].
If the Ibrox club would be to advance against the German outfit then this young Romanian wonderkid will almost surely be in the center of it.
But Hagi’s heritage at Ibrox is looking increasingly likely to continue just beyond this European effort and this season.
Should we procure Hagi’s services fulltime come summer time, he might just prove to be among the greatest parts of transfer company in our history.
