Kris Boyd comments on Rangers needing a striker, and new signing Ianis Hagi

Kris Boyd has told Sky Sports News (Friday, 2.45pm) that he reckons Rangers have pulled off a coup in signing Ianis Hagi, and has discussed the need for a striker with Matej Vydra and Florian Kamberi linked.

Hagi, 21, has agreed a move to Rangers from KRC Genk which sees the 10-time Romania international join the club on loan until the end of the season – with The Gers boasting a permanent clause in the contract.

Meanwhile, BBC Sport claim Rangers have made approaches to sign Burnley striker Matej Vydra and Hibernian star Florian Kamberi – with Jermain Defoe bein stretchered off in the win over Ross County. Alfredo Morelos is the Gers only fit striker.


Former Rangers man Boyd stated his excitement to see youngster Hagi – son of legend Gheorge – pull on a Light Blue shirt, before underlining how important it is for Rangers to get a striker in before Scotland’s midnight deadline.

“If Hagi is as half as good as his Father they’ve got a player,” Boyd said. “Vydra is one that keeps popping up, Florian Kamberi from Hibs. Rangers do need to get someone in because they cannot depend on Morelos. You need that competition for places.”

TBR’s view – Can Rangers get deal for Vydra or Kamberi over the line?

Vydra is probably the most exciting signing of the two strikers but with Burnley having sold Nahki Wells to Bristol City, the chances of them landing Czech Republic star Vydra could be unlikely.

Kamberi, meanwhile, has impressed since moving to Hibs in the Scottish Premiership – but whether Jack Ross’ side would allow Kamberi to leave Hibs for Rangers remains to be seen. Both deals will be difficult.
