Ianis Hagi stole the show on Thursday night as Rangers clinched a stunning 3-2 victory over Braga at Ibrox to give Steven Gerrard hope of progressing into the last-16 of the Europa League.
The ambidextrous playmaker scored a second half brace to inspire a Gers comeback which never looked remotely possible as the game moved into the final 25 minutes.
The Romania international has made a bright opening to life in Scotland, and his reputation amongst the Gers faithful has been sent into the stratosphere following his masterclass display under the European lights.
His January move from Racing Genk attracted plenty of media attention due to the fact the 21-year-old is the son of revered Romanian legend Gheorghe Hagi, who was in attendance last night to see his son light up Ibrox.
And, in the aftermath of proceedings, Hagi senior was pictured alongside Colin Stewart, the Rangers Youth Development Company Director of Operations, in a behind-the-scenes snap.

The Hagi family really are the talk of the blue half of Glasgow right now and it’s no surprise that Gheorghe was in-demand for photos after his son’s stunning display.
Stewart’s job may well concern the development of Rangers’ academy products, but fans will certainly be hoping he put a cheeky word in Gheorghe’s ear ahead of a potential summer move.
That option to buy clause is just waiting to be triggered…
