Rangers’ Romanian playmaker Ianis Hagi has given the clearest indication yet that he wishes to leave Rangers after admitting he wanted to stay in Spain, albeit not for the first time.

Speaking to massive Spanish sports outlet MARCA, the ex-Genk star gave his most explicit and clearest quotes yet that he is done with Rangers, even if he did praise the club and fans.

He said:

“Yes. I feel that it is the league in which I can be most successful and in which I can bring out all my qualities and it is the league that I have followed since I was a child and it was always my dream to be here. I’m here now and I want to be here for a long time. Yes, it is where I want to be. It is the football in which I want to grow, it is the football that I believe can unlock the best version of me. I’ve only been here 6-7 months and I already feel like I’m a better player, I’m growing every day, in training and in games. I see progression every day and I believe that in the near future my best qualities will be unlocked and I will show everyone who I am.”

That was in response to being asked if he was happy in Spain and wanted to stay long term.

He’s pretty clear that he intends to stay in Spain if he can, but we must say, he will need to up his performance levels because he’s been utter dross over there.

2 goals (both in the cup v low-level opposition) and one assist in 24 appearances is a horrible number, and for him to suggest he thinks he’s a better player now than he was when he was at Ibrox does strike us as mildly deluded.

Speaking of deluded, he’s made his father look a bit silly again, contradicting the old man Hagi’s comments that his lad was coming back to Rangers 100% to become a regular this summer.

Honestly, Rangers need shot of the pair of them, we’ve had enough of the circus surrounding the Hagi name, and this nonsense is just the latest in that.

We’re perfectly stocked in the 10 area, Hagi has been a flop in Spain and didn’t exactly shine spectacularly for Rangers either.

This is a tie that very much needs severed, and Hagi junior is doing his best to make that happen.
