The Rangers star tested positive while on international duty with Romania and was initially due to self-isolate for 20 days due to his positive test coming while in North Macedonia.

After arranging to travel back to Romania via private jet, that was cut to 14 days with Hagi due to be available to return to action for Rangers later this month when the Gers face Livingston.

Before he can return though, Hagi is stuck in the Romanian capital and his dad confirmed he is feeling “fine” and is currently undergoing treatment.

“Ianis is fine, he is at home, he is feeling better and better,” Hagi Sr. said.

“He is undergoing treatment and we hope to get out of isolation as soon as possible.

“He is at home, in Bucharest.”

Rangers were without Hagi at the weekend as they faced St. Johnstone in the Premiership and the Gers number 7 will miss Thursday’s Europa League clash with Lyon and flag day this weekend.

Thankfully, it doesn’t sound as though Hagi has been too badly affected after picking up Covid and hopefully there are no further complications that delay his return to Scotland.

Meanwhile; Rangers kicked off the new SWPL season with a dominant 7-0 win over Hamilton yesterday
