RANGERS have suffered an injury blow in the Scottish Cup clash against Stirling Albion.

Playmaker Ianis Hagi was forced off early in the fourth round tie with what appears to be a knee injury.

The 23-year-old Romanian went down just 11 minutes into the match after colliding with Stirling defender Jordan McGregor.

Hagi appeared to be clutching his knee as he received treatment from the Rangers physios.

And his night was over after the coming-together as he was forced to hobble back to the bench as he was replaced.

Youngster Alex Lowry replaced Hagi in the Scottish Cup clash and went on to score the opener for his side.

Making it a debut to remember at Ibrox, Lowry rolled the ball into the bottom corner after 31 minutes before James Tavernier doubled the lead from the spot.
