Steven Gerrard believes Ianis Hagi’s desire to constantly improve will help him step up his game for the remainder of the season for the Gers.

The Romanian received a lot of praise, as he helped the champions advance to the League Cup semi-finals.

As he devotes himself to his fitness and football, Gerrard believes the playmaker has got a lot more left in him as he seeks to be the best he can be for Rangers.

Gerrard said: “Listen, we knew the talent that we were buying and knew the talent that Ianis had. We knew there were areas of his game he could grow and improve.

“The one thing you are dealing with here is a player who is obsessed to get better, whether that be off the pitch in the gymnasium, he is to the millimetre in terms of his nutrition and his diet and his professionalism.

“And he is someone that stays behind after every single session trying to improve parts of his game. He is an absolute pleasure to work with.

“I think he has got real good people around him away from here as well who are helping support him in the game in terms of representation, in terms of his dad, which everyone knows about.

“He has had a bit of a disrupted season. He took a whack in the first league game against Livingston and he was in great form then.

“But he has looked after himself since he has been injured and slowly he has got back to where we need him to be, which is that creative tool in the final third.

“We have been lacking that a little bit in certain games so to see him come on and have such a quick impact bodes well for the up and coming games.”
