Ian Durrant and Derek Ferguson have been blown away by the recent form of Rangers playmaker Ianis Hagi.
Steven Gerrard has brought the midfielder back into his side for the games against St. Johnstone and Hibernian, scoring in both games.
With games coming thick and fast, both Ferguson and Durrant have claimed that the rise of Hagi could be critical to maintaining the unbeaten league run.
Speaking on the Blues Brothers podcast, Durrant has claimed that Hagi’s return to form has come at the perfect time for the Bears.
“Great. He’s come back and he’s been flying the last three games. It was a great move, and Hagi gambles – it has come at the right time.
Ferguson agreed, claiming that the Romanian youngster has finally gotten to grips with the rough and tumble of the Scottish Premiership.
“Talking about Hagi, I thought he would be better as an impact player, but he’s come into the side and he has looked good, getting a few goals – magic.”
Hagi has returned to the side with the perfect attitude.
The 22-year-old has scored in his past three starts for the Gers and will be hoping to keep that form going ahead of next weeks’ Old Firm clash in the game at St. Mirren tomorrow.
In his past two games, Hagi has had seven shots on goal. According to WyScout, he has also had five touches in the opposing area, as well as attracting eight fouls.
Gerrard will be wanting to keep his side fresh by rotating during this busy period, but with Hagi in such fine form, it would be no surprise to see him starting against St. Mirren.
