Rangers’ Romanian superstar Ianis Hagi’s market value spiked last night after his wonder goal during Romania’s loss to Germany.

The ex-Genk man, with a previous value of around at least £10M+ (after Rangers rejected £9M from Galatasaray according to reports), dribbled through half the home side in the Volksparkstadion in Hamburg to beautifully then dink a ball past the helpless Ter Stegen. This gave the visitors a shock lead before the hosts composed themselves to secure the three world cup qualifying points.

And those kinds of moments, in such a high-profile match away from home at a massive nation’s ground, are what elevate a player’s stock hugely.

Is Hagi now worth £20M? Let’s not get carried away. The lad is extremely talented and still only 22, plus that name is of course legendary and he’s starting to look the serious part and living up to the legacy of his father, but let’s not get hysterical. Whatever Rangers would accept for him is essentially his value.

But goals like those will put those numbers up and increase how lucrative this asset is.

We can’t see Hagi remaining a Rangers player for many years, such is the interest in him, but when the time is right, the board can definitely expect a fair old chunk of change for his signature.

As long as he keeps destroying Germany, that is.
