Many Rangers fans showered front man Ianis Hagi with praise after his side’s 1-0 win against St Johnstone on Wednesday night.
The 22-year-old scored the only goal of the game as the Gers extended their lead to 23 points at the top of the Scottish Premiership table, although arch-rivals Celtic still have two games in hand.
Per Whoscored, the Romanian striker managed to complete three interceptions, had two shots on goal and accumulated a pass success rate of 80.6%. His strike to seal the match was a sweet one too, perhaps one Gerrard would be proud of given his tendency for bagging memorable goals in his playing days.
Should Hagi start for Rangers?
Unsurprisingly, supporters were delighted with Hagi’s strike and some reacted to his post-match interview on Twitter after the win.
Hagi lauded as Rangers increase gap
“Yesss Hagi! Much better already! Great football and brilliant strike! Get in there!!”
“Yassssss @IanisHagi10 you beautiful wee man”
“Love the improvement of this young man the will to fight to strive to be a better player, outstanding @IanisHagi10″
“This boy is a class act on and off the field. I’ve got so much time for him”
“Boys stats for the season are excellent. Don’t see many players in world football who are as confident in both feet as him, genuinely don’t know what’s his stronger foot.”
“Great footballer, great guy.”
