Cammy Bell of Heart & Hand has provided an update on Twitter after a report claimed that Rangers have rejected three transfer bids for Ianis Hagi.

Turkish outlet Fanatik reported on Monday via the Scottish Sun that offers had been tabled by three separate European clubs for the 22-year-old.

It was asserted that Galatasaray had seen a €4m (£3.4m) bid rejected, while €7m (£6m) offers from Lazio and Sevilla had also been turned down.

The report went on to claim that Rangers value the Romania international at €11m (£9.3m).

That’s around triple what they paid Genk for Hagi last summer.

However, Bell, of official club media partners Heart & Hand, has rubbished the claims.

‘No bids have come in for Hagi, and (he) remains a very big part of this season’s plans within the manager’s current squad,’ he wrote on Twitter on Monday evening.

Hagi transfer report rubbished

This update from Bell came just a day after David Edgar on Heart & Hand‘s main Twitter account corrected a Scottish Sun exclusive on Nikola Katic, asserting that the club wants to send him out on loan rather than sell him.

It shows the increasing role of fan media amid the Rangers’ controversial 2021/22 press policy.

One important player may leave Ibrox before the end of the window following the club’s Champions League qualifying exit but given that Rangers have struggled for creativity at times during the early stages of the season, Hagi would be the last player some fans would want to see sold.

He has two goals and an assist from just three appearances so far this campaign, following a return of eight goals and 15 assists last season and the two-footed maestro offers something different whether deployed as part of a front three or in midfield.

In other transfer news, a big European club are reportedly considering a multi-million-pound swoop for another Rangers star.
