Hagi senior has been at it yet yet YET again after the Romanian legend and father of Rangers star Ianis has once again changed his mind about his son and confirmed it’s possible the attacking midfielder will leave Ibrox this summer.

Coming only days after he stated ‘factually’ that the boy is going nowhere, the ex-Barca superstar said:

“If he is wanted by a club or is being talked about, everything is open, anything can happen at any time, Nothing is nailed down. But he is still at Rangers and has extended the contract, is highly appreciated by everyone, he is loved and he has represented us as he should. Let him express himself on the pitch and things will happen by themselves. It has been an enormously difficult period. Thank God he is fine, healthy and back on the pitch. When he gets to play, he will play well. He is mentally very good. But he missed a year, it’s clear that you need time, but he has the full support of Rangers. Let’s see what happens.”

So a bit of a backtrack there to say the least, not least at the transfer news, but his own outrage at Romania for not selecting his son when his son was clearly miles off being ready to play at that level.

Now he’s admitting the kid is miles off fitness and ‘needs time’, which apparently he didn’t only a few weeks ago when Hagi senior let rip at the national team for not picking the kid and implying he has a divine right to play, even when he isn’t match fit.

He talks some amount of absolute twaddle, and we wonder if he and Michael Beale exchange notes on the art of verbal diarrhoea when speaking to the media.

Nevertheless, Hagi is now saying, yes, his son could well leave Ibrox this summer, and frankly we’re fine with it by now, given what has gone before.

He and his father have become a bit of a circus Alfredo-style and if Celta Vigo do bid the £3M for him, we’d say take it and wave goodbye.
