Ianis Hagi’s father Gheorghe has said that his son is enjoying life at Rangers and has no intention of leaving Ibrox.
Rangers paid £3.15m to sign the winger on a permanent deal from Genk ahead of the 2020/21 season following a loan spell in Glasgow in the previous campaign.
In all, the 23-year-old made 82 appearances for the Gers, scoring 14 times and providing 21 assists.
Was there a danger of Hagi leaving?
Hagi’s £21,000-per-week Rangers contract doesn’t expire until the end of the 2023/24 season, but that hasn’t stopped him being linked with a move away from Ibrox. Turkish outlet Sabah Spor reported at the end of last month (via Daily Record) that Galatasaray were to hold talks with the Gers over a potential transfer, with AS Roma also said to be admirers.
However, in quotes relayed by Romanian journalist Emanuel Rosu, the player’s father has said that the 23-year-old is ‘staying with Rangers’ and that ‘he loves it there’.
Many Rangers fans flocked to Rosu’s tweet to express their delight at this news about their ‘magic’ Romanian winger.
Rangers fans erupt over Hagi update
“Things you absolutely love to hear”
“I love this boy so so much”
“Can a tweet make you smile so much”
“Our star boy”
“Music to my ears”
