They may have continued their unbeaten streak, but Rangers will surely feel their 2-2 draw against Hibernian on Sunday was two dropped points.
The Gers enjoyed 70% of the possession at Easter Road, and took 12 more total shots than the home side (19-7). And yet, even despite the dominance, they couldn’t convert their opportunities in front of goal, and a couple of defensive lapses at the other end cost them big time.
And whilst Ianis Hagi played a key part in Scott Arfield’s lovely team goal, the Romanian struggled to impose him on the game, and ended up losing six of his nine total duels.
After seeing his performance, Rangers fans took to Twitter to share their reactions about the attacker.
Hagi is a waste of a jersey

Hagi is not cut out for the Scottish game

Hagi’s lack off effort is a concern

Hagi has been dire

Tempo is terrible. Hagi is a passenger in this half.

A couple of Rangers fans insisted Hagi was miles off the pace, and urged Gerrard during the game to take him off.
Get hagi off! A mile aff it

A love Hagi but he’s a mile off it today man get him off for Jones

The 21-year-old has scored just the once in nine games for Rangers this season, and there’s no doubt Steven Gerrard’s side need a lot more from the talented Romanian.
Getting him to be consistent even during a game could be key to whether the Gers can finally lift the league title, and if he can add goals to his locker like his manager did, then the Ibrox side will fancy their chances of ending their long wait.
