“I can’t wait to meet the fans and I can’t wait for them to meet me and try to build this relationship as good as possible.”

In the final day of the transfer window, Rangers have finally pulled off their first winter signing and it looks to be a real coup.

Bears are delighted at the prospect of Hagi donning the Light Blue and bringing attacking flair to a team which has begun 2020 slowly.
