Ianis Hagi has played down a possible injury scare for Rangers after his awkward celebration during the 1-0 win over Hibernian.
The Romania international slid on his knees after scoring the only goal of the game just after the half an hour mark, before taking a painful tumble and then reverting back to his old celebration.
Should Hagi start for Rangers?
He was taken off later on in the second half by Steven Gerrard, but any sort of concern over how his knees were at the end of the match were played down by the player, as he tweeted that they are fine ahead of their next clash away at St. Mirren, the game which comes just a few days before Rangers will be playing their bitter rivals Celtic in the Old Firm Derby.
Hagi has been ‘excellent’ lately
Gerrard highlighted at the end of the match that Hagi was ‘excellent’ against Motherwell while also hailing his display against Hibs, as the attacking midfield player is starting to go on a good run of form at just the right time.
He has now scored a total of four goals, coupled up with nine assists, in 24 games in all competitions so far in the 2020/21 term for the Ibrox faithful (Transfermarkt), and he will be hoping to add to his tally in the next couple of games, especially against the Hoops, a game where the Gers could further extend their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.
