Rangers: Many ‘Gers fans want Ianis Hagi to be the team’s primary penalty taker

Rangers: Many ‘Gers fans want Ianis Hagi to be the team’s primary penalty taker - Rangers

A number of Rangers fans have called for Ianis Hagi to be nominated as the team’s primary penalty taker after the topic was broached by ‘Gers fan @JwWatp on Twitter.

The Light Blues have a decidedly poor record from the spot this season, with Scott Arfield’s unsuccessful spot kick against Hamilton on Saturday the fifth penalty out of nine that Rangers have failed to convert in 2019/20. James Tavernier has been unable to convert three of his five penalties in the current campaign while Alfredo Morelos had a spot kick saved in the 0-1 Betfred Cup final defeat to Celtic two months ago.

January signing Ianis Hagi has yet to take a penalty for Rangers but he arrived at Ibrox with a stellar record from 12 yards. He has converted 11 of the 14 spot kicks taken during his career and has succeeded with each of his last eight penalties, with only one fluffed penalty in the last three years. [via TransferMarkt]
