“A waste of £3M” – some Rangers fans aren’t happy with big-money man

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard
He's definitely ready to sell.

Before we begin, this is not a witch hunt. We like Ianis Hagi a lot, and have been one of his biggest defenders in recent times.

But it’s plain to see that unless he plays properly central in the 10, he’s a wasted shirt.

Yesterday Hagi lined up as interchanging with Scott Arfield between the 10 and wide right, on a surface he absolutely can’t handle.

And it’s safe to say that while his display v Saints was actually fairly decent, his performance yesterday was agonisingly poor.

His passing percentage was dreadful at just 75%, and it was plain to see the surface was absolutely not for him. His selection was a big mistake, and if Joe Aribo wasn’t fit, there were other options Stevie could have used. Maybe a guy called Greg Docherty?

The point is there’s a growing issue with Hagi now – he’s being slaughtered after every match as not being good enough, with some fans saying he’s a waste of £3M.

And if Steven Gerrard is going to continue to mismanage him, then we’d have to agree.

Hagi is just pointless wide right, and useless on fake grass.

Combine the two and you’ve got a bad call, outright.

If we’re going to get the best of this potentially brilliant little player, he needs to be better managed.

The sooner the better.

  1. This another example of SG’s and Culshaws dogmatism that put Hagi in that role yesterday. He was never going to be comfortable anywhere on that pitch against that type of team. The same could said for Roofe too who needs to know what his position is to be ??

  2. Totally agree on hagi position, and Roofe should start asap to do the job alfredo cant in his current shape….literally im afraid. Help me though with being unable to play on a plastic pitch?
