Glasgow Rangers midfielder Ianis Hagi has suggested his career may not be on a good trajectory despite helping the Gers win their 55th Premiership title.
Hagi makes worrying comments
£5.4m-valued Hagi (Transfermarkt) is currently on international duty with Romania after helping the Gers confirm their status as league champions.
Speaking to the Romania national team’s media department (via Ibrox News), he suggested his career is not on the correct trajectory. He explained:
“Not necessarily that I won the title in Scotland means that I entered a good trajectory. The career has its pros and cons, it matters to know how to get over them, to learn from them.
“After all, everyone has their own way. I see it as a goal I wanted. I want to win more trophies, I liked the feeling, the emotion I experienced.”
Given recent speculation surrounding the 22-year-old’s future, this may not be the best news for Steven Gerrard and co. Serie A outfit Lazio have been linked with a move for the former Genk man recently, with him reportedly available for a fee of about £8.5m (Gazzetta Dello Sport).
Will Hagi be at Rangers next season?
All in all, this has been a solid first full campaign for Hagi at Ibrox. In 38 matches in all competitions, he has seven goals and 12 assists (Transfermarkt), and has improved as the season has progressed. With Champions League potentially football on offer next season, he may be tempted to stay in Glasgow, but he clearly has bigger ambitions than that. While these comments neither confirm nor deny his desire to seek pastures new, his future remains far from certain.
