Glasgow Rangers youngster Ianis Hagi has taken to Twitter to give his reaction to his side’s win against Hibernian at Ibrox in the Scottish Premiership on Wednesday evening.

The Gers returned to winning ways in the league with a 2-1 home vicotry against Hibs.

The visitors took the lead after 35 minutes when Paul Hanlon found the back of the Rangers net, but George Edmundson restored parity in first-half injury time.

Then in the 84th minute, Hagi, who can operate as an attacking midfielder or as a forward, scored the winner for the Gers.

The 21-year-old Romania international is the son of legendary footballer Gheorghe Hagi, who turned 55 on Wednesday.

The Rangers January signing expressed his delight at scoring on the special day and is also pleased to have helped Steven Gerrard’s side to all three points from the encounter.

Stats

Over the course of the 90 minutes at Ibrox on Wednesday evening, hosts Rangers had 68% of the possession, took 16 shots of which seven were on target, and earned 18 corners, according to BBC Sport.

Stuttering form

Rangers have fallen behind Scottish champions Celtic in the race for this season’s top-flight title in recent weeks.

As such, Hagi’s winner has kept the Gers fans’ dream alive that the Ibrox side could yet become the top team in Scotland again in 2019-20.

However, for this to happen Rangers must be more consistent and they need their arch rivals to start dropping points if the seven-point gap is to close.

The Gers have a game in hand on Celtic but know that other results need to go their way if the title race is to go down to the wire.
