Rangers started their Scottish Premiership clash against St. Mirren on Wednesday afternoon slowly but quickly made amends.
Steven Gerrard made two changes to his side, bringing in Filip Helander and Alfredo Morelos, finally dropping Ryan Kent.
The Bears eventually took the lead when Kemar Roofe’s strike took a wicked deflection over the goalkeeper. The lead was doubled minutes later by Alfredo Morelos.
Joe Aribo and Ianis Hagi have come into the side in recent weeks, and have both impressed in the wins over St. Johnstone and Hibernian.
The Romanian continued that form on Wednesday and delivered an assist for Roofe to fire home midway through the first half.
Not only did the pass have the perfect weight on it, but he also showed great determination to win the ball back, highlighting a different part of his game.
Hagi has finally cemented his spot in the side this month and has levelled James Tavernier at the top of the assist charts despite playing fewer minutes.
Many Rangers fans have been blown away by the first-half performance of Hagi at St. Mirren, with the majority labelling him “magic.”
Some have recognised the partnership brewing between the playmaker and Roofe, who also combined for the winner against Hibernian over the weekend.
