RANGERS have still to complete the £4m signing of Ianis Hagi from Belgian club Genk despite claims from Romanian agent Giovani Becali that a deal had been agreed.

The 21-year-old attacking midfielder moved to Ibrox on loan until the end of the season back in January.

The son of football great Gheorghe became a firm fans’ favourite during his time in Glasgow and scored important goals against Hibernian and Braga.

Rangers have the exclusive option to sign the Romanian internationalist permanently and Becali, the brother of Steaua Bucharest owner Gigi, has stated they have taken it.

But Becali isn't Hagi's representative and the Ibrox club, who have been in constant contact with the player since football was suspended back in March, haven't finalised any agreement. 

Earlier this month Rangers sporting director Ross Wilson said: “He’s on loan until the end of season 19/20 whenever that comes – whether it is the end of May, end of June or end of July.

“We’ve got an exclusive option on him that was negotiated at the time, and we have a little bit of time before we need to take that up.

“I think he has found a place at Rangers where he’s felt loved, he can feel the size of the club and loved the intensity and the pressure of the crowd.

“He conducted that famous interview after the Braga game where he was so happy to be here.

“Steven Gerrard is fantastic to him, as are all the other coaches. Everyone has a really good relationship with him.”

Becali had said: "Ianis has just signed for one of the most important clubs in Europe. The deal is complete.

"I would describe Rangers as the Juventus of Scotland. I understand completely why Ianis has chosen to sign for them. They are an extraordinary club.

"The most important thing is that Rangers have carried out their option to buy him and he now has peace of mind about his future for the next few years.”

Becali added: "He has done very well at Rangers, but there was always the worry that they wouldn't want to sign him up.

"But I know he has a very good contract there in Glasgow and this is a really smart move for him."
