Gheorghe Hagi has claimed that Rangers will bring the best out of his son, Ianis after he completed a switch to Ibrox in January.

The Romanian youngster joined the club on loan until the end of the season from Genk, and Hagi claims the chance for more football in Scotland makes it an attractive switch.

Hagi Jr completed his first minutes for the club coming off the bench in the 0-0 draw against Aberdeen and could make his first start against Hibernian on Wednesday.


Commenting on the move to the Herald, Hagi pointed out why he was such a fan of his son making the move to Glasgow last month.

“I am pleased he’s gone to a club where he can play,” he said.

“It’s a good move for him. I want him to be happy, continue to improve and enjoy his career and I think he can do that in Scotland.”

Hagi arrives at the Light Blues with great experience despite only being 21-years-old, playing recently in the UEFA Nations League, the Champions League, and the Under-21 European Championship in the past year.

Rangers fans will be excited to see Hagi in action once he settles in fully at Ibrox. He was at the top of his game during the under-21 European Championships.

The Romanian scored twice in four outings, averaging 2.3 shots on goal and completing two key passes in each game according to WhoScored – stats that could make him extremely dangerous in the Scottish Premier League, something his Dad clearly believes can happen.
