Hagi impressing with Rangers
Ianis Hagi, son of legendary midfielder Gheorghe Hagi, is currently plying his trade in the Scottish Premiership with Rangers.
Hagi signed for Belgian outfit Genk in the summer of 2019.
The 21-year-old made 19 appearances for Genk, in which he scored three and assisted four, before being loaned out to Rangers in the most recent winter window.
The attack-minded midfielder has since notched 12 appearances across all competitions for Steven Gerrard’s Rangers side.
One of those games came against Braga in the Europa League, and it saw Hagi score a brace to complete a superb Rangers fightback.

Tottenham & Man City eyeing Hagi?
Of course, with the majority of football around the globe currently suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Hagi hasn’t played for Rangers in some time.
But, as per the Evening Standard, the Gers do hold the option to make the Romanian international’s move permanent when the season concludes.
However, according to Hagi’s agent, a couple of high-profile figures from Premier League clubs have also asked about his client.
Giovani Becali claims that both Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho and Manchester City director of football Txiki Begiristain have contacted him regarding the versatile midfielder.
However, Becali believes that Rangers will sign Hagi outright:
“I have been asked personally by Jose Mourinho and Txiki Begiristain about Ianis Hagi.
“They wanted to know about him and how he was getting on. There’s a lot of top people in European football who know all about Ianis and what he can do.
“I happen to think Ianis is on a good plan at Rangers. I think Rangers will sign him because he is a player who has that little extra piece of creativity and skill.
“He has many other qualities and is actually more graceful than his father ever was. He runs like a gazelle compared to him!
“I think he is improving all the time at Rangers. He will continue to get better if he signs for them I think.” As quoted by the Evening Standard.
