Rangers fans concerned about Ibrox star's form under van Bronckhorst

Rangers fans are concerned about the form of Ianis Hagi since the arrival of Gio van Bronckhorst at Ibrox.

Hagi is an extremely talented player who has produced big moments for club and country in the past year.

Steven Gerrard didn’t always trust him in the big games but he’s played more regularly under GvB, starting five of his six Premiership matches in charge, including the 1-0 win over Dundee United at Ibrox on Saturday afternoon.

He’s often been asked to play out on the right flank, though, and hasn’t looked entirely comfortable there, with his lack of pace limiting his effectiveness.

The 23-year-old has only managed one assist under the Dutchman and is yet to score, and he looked out of sorts against the Terrors.

He was announced as the Man of the Match in the closing stages of the game, but it’s fair to say that most fans would have chosen someone else.

Rangers fans concerned about Hagi form

Hagi’s effort levels are never in doubt but he lacked composure and wasn’t able to produce quality in the final third on Saturday.

He received a decent SofaScore rating of 7.4 for his performance but lost possession a whopping 19 times and only had a pass accuracy of 77%, while he also gave away three fouls.

Here’s a selection of reactions to his display from Twitter:

The majority of Rangers players have gone up a gear since the arrival of GvB but Hagi is currently in the minority.

He certainly hasn’t had his best month in a Rangers shirt but there’s little doubt that he’ll be doing his utmost to turn his form around as quickly as possible.

It’s important that supporters stick with him, as he’s capable of the spectacular and could be an key player during the second half of the season, particularly if he’s deployed in a more central role.

Here’s how a selection of furious rival fans reacted to the penalty decision at Ibrox.
