Former Glasgow Rangers striker Kyle Lafferty has urged the Gers not to sell Romanian midfielder Ianis Hagi as he has the potential to become a club legend.
Gers should keep Hagi
It was a difficult start to the campaign for Hagi, with him coming under criticism from the Ibrox outfit’s supporters, but he has gradually settled in at his new club.
Speaking to Pro Sport, Lafferty believes the Gers should resist all temptation to sell the 22-year-old. He said:
“When you play for a big team like Rangers, the pressure is huge. Fans expect you to give it your all on the field whether you play Celtic or a relegation team.
“I saw quality in Ianis Hagi. He had some problems at one point with an injury, but now things have settled down I can say he’s fantastic!
“He is a player who will mark the history of Rangers in the coming years and if he’s not transferred to another team, he has the potential to become a club legend.”
Hagi has a big future
So far this campaign, Hagi has grown in stature. He has managed five goals and a very impressive 11 assists in all competitions and has started five of the last six matches in the Premiership (Transfermarkt).
With that in mind, it seems Steven Gerrard now sees him as an important part of his squad.
Will Ianis Hagi become a club legend?
Hagi is a valuable asset to the 54-time Scottish champions. With Champions League experience to his name and being the son of Romanian legend Gheorghe Hagi, he can be both marketable as well as a very good player on the pitch.
Currently valued at £5.4m (Transfermarkt), the attacker has a big future ahead of him.
In other news, Brian Laudrup urges this ace to move to Ibrox.
