RANGERS have confirmed Ianis Hagi has signed a long-term contract at Ibrox.

Genk announced on Tuesday night that Rangers had taken up the option to sign the Romania midfielder following his loan spell.

The 21-year-old told the Rangers website: “I am excited about rejoining the squad for pre-season and putting on the famous shirt once again.

“There was interest from other clubs, but my priority was always to return to Glasgow and play for Rangers.”

Hagi tweeted: “I’m extremely happy and proud to be part of the @RangersFC family and represent the colours of such a huge club permanently.

"I can’t wait to meet up with the boys, play at Ibrox again and keep enjoying moments with our amazing fans! I also want to thank @KRCGenkofficial.”
