Gheorghe Hagi has confirmed what Ibrox Noise reported to you earlier this year, and that Ianis is not scheduled to return to full-time football till the autumn.

The attacking midfielder had a serious injury in early spring and Ibrox Noise informed you he would be fortunate to return in early autumn, and now his father has confirmed a further four month recuperation with his state of recovery judged at around 50%.

He said:

“He has done about 50 per cent of his recovery and still has 50 per cent of work to do. His knee is as strong as it was before and actually probably stronger than before the injury. He’s on the right track and his rehabilitation has worked very well. But it’s still going to take three or four more months for him to return. Ianis will get over this difficult moment in his career though.”

At this point Hagi would be extremely fortunate to be back by early October, well into next season.

It’s a blow for him, and rather ridicules a few of the fans who genuinely expected him to be lining up for the Europa League final.

But then, it’s not really a blow, because this was the original prognosis for an injury this serious.

Rangers will have to plan for the summer without his services going into 22/33, but did reject a £6M bid for them from Galatasaray.

See how it all develops.
