    Ianis Hagi fires in a late winner on his dad's birthday

    Ianis Hagi fires in a late winner to mark his first Rangers start and his dad’s birthday

    Ianis Hagi smashed in a late volley on his first start for Rangers as the Ibrox side came from behind to beat stubborn Hibs.

    George Edmundson levelled on the stroke of half time after Paul Hanlon had volleyed the visitors ahead.

    Rangers piled on the pressure after the break and Hagi’s fine strike on 84 minutes keeps them seven points behind Celtic in the title race.

    Hagi’s winning goal came on the day his famous father, Gheorghe, turned 55.

    Rangers slipped up at home on Saturday, failing to make the most of their territorial advantage in a stalemate with Aberdeen, and it looked like it might be another frustrating outing for Steven Gerrard’s men as Hibs repelled wave after wave of attacks in the second half.

    The hosts had 18 corners and visiting goalkeeper Ofir Marciano made a series of good stops to thwart Alfredo Morelos, while Joe Aribo came close and Edmundson was denied a second by a goal-line clearance.

    However, Rangers kept going and made it four successive wins over Hibs thanks to a bit of magic from Romania international Hagi.

    It was a first defeat of 2020 for Hibs, who remain sixth in the Premiership.
