A number of Glasgow Rangers fans were raving over “magical” footage posted by the club showing a fresh angle on a special Ianis Hagi moment.
The footage, which was shared on @RangersFC, shows a behind-the-goal angle of the Romanian’s stunning free kick against Braga in the home leg of their Europa League round of 32 clash back in February which ensured victory on a pulsating night at Ibrox.

It looked like being a night to forget for the ‘Gers when they trailed 0-2 to their Portuguese visitors after an hour but, on his European debut for the club, Hagi halved the deficit midway through the second half before Joe Aribo levelled the game with 15 minutes to go. [via BBC]
The coup de grace was delivered on 82 minutes when the home side won a free kick 25 yards from goal. Hagi, who BBC reported Martin Watt described as having an excellent game, curled the set piece into the Braga net, albeit with the help of a deflection, to spark scenes of delirium around Ibrox.
Was this the best moment of the season for the 'Gers?
The ‘Gers also won the second leg to advance to the last 16 of the Europa League, where the tournament was suspended amid the coronavirus pandemic. Hagi this week joined the club permanently after arriving on loan from Genk in January.
These ‘Gers fans on Twitter savoured the club’s footage of the Romanian’s free kick against Braga:
The silence when the ball bobbled was one of the most amazing things i’ve ever witnessed at Ibrox. It was magical. What a night that was. https://t.co/qh4eNX6Ce8
