Celtic Fans Mock Ibrox As They Talk Up Hagi Because They Think They Can Flog Him.

Image for Celtic Fans Mock Ibrox As They Talk Up Hagi Because They Think They Can Flog Him.

The internet is full of two things today; reports from Ibrox about Hagi is the Great White Hope and Celtic fans sniggering over those same pieces. The motivation behind them is perfectly obvious; in the absence of anyone else to flog they are going to hype this guy to the heavens and hope that some big money comes in for him.

They are whistling in the wind. There is next to no chance of them getting an offer that meets their ludicrous valuations, nor indeed of getting one that even realises the transfer fee that they paid for him. He has been injured for nearly a year. You don’t come back from that easily, if some players come back from it at all.

On top of that, there has barely been a more over-rated footballer. One of the reports on him talks about how he plays under the pressure of his famous name. Is that what It is? I thought he was just really mediocre. But I guess it explains, in some ways, the gap between the hype and the reality, and that’s one Hell of a big gap if you’ve ever watched him.

On top of that, there’s the mouthy father, the elder statesman, who seems to spend a lot of his time telling the world how brilliant his son is instead of letting the world figure that out – or not – for itself. It sounds an awful lot like overcompensating for me. If he was really as good as Daddy says, then maybe Daddy wouldn’t need to keep convincing people.

The media will never raise that obvious point; that’s why you find similar arguments relegated to places over and over again in the comments online, either on Twitter or on the articles themselves. Celtic fans know this trick. They know the game. They’ve seen Ibrox attempt this before, with Morelos and Kent most notably.

Well, they can’t do that this time, so what else is there? Kamara, I guess, except that he’s been in and out of the team for months so that people at other clubs have actually had an opportunity to watch him play. That’s bad news from the point of view of encouraging big offers. Hagi has been out so long maybe people have forgotten he’s not great.

That, at any rate, seems to be the thinking. Talking about how great his potential is. If they had to write about his current level, his current performances and what he has given the Ibrox club up until now, they would have very little to say and they know it.

Without a major sale, that club is in a lot of bother.

This is their last card. This is what they have left.

You better believe they are going to play it for all it’s worth, which isn’t much but they have to try.

And it’s going to be amusing watching their attempt.

    They could make a right James Hunt of it by throwing him into the team and start playing him for 90 minutes hoping he catches the eye of a club.
    But there is the danger he gets injured within a couple of games and he has another set back.NO SALE.

  • Paul Mac says:

    See his oul fella is complaining that his kid is not getting picked by the Romanian coach , did you see the scandal caused by Claudio Reyna and his missis over the fact that the US coach didnt pick their lad Gio during the World Cup and tried to get him sacked ?
    The youtuber Zealand made 2 videos about it … its feckin crazy !!!
    The 1st
    and the latest one where its even crazier

  • Dora says:

    Hagi- pointless and very forgettable..pretty much like sevco itself..!!

  • Peter Cassidy says:

    How many games has he played since he signed for the rangers 2012 I think I watched him play one game lasted about 30 minutes got injured never saw him again .

  • Kevan McKeown says:

    But…..but…this is the guy who, after about 3 games, ‘ibrox noise’ claimed it would be ‘fair prediction’, that in a few seasons he could go for 100 million. Yes….they actually printed that ! No really much else ye can say about that.


      Aye, but that wiz ‘100 Million MyGers Points’.
      The equivalent of a ranjurs Union Jack tea towel in store.
      Fuds ralottythum.

  • Tony B says:

    He’s more of a Gagi than a Hagi.

    I’ve seen him and he’s errrrr…… good enough to play for sevco; in other words red rotten.

  • JimBhoy says:

    But his Da, yada yada….

  • Ade says:

    Looney lundstrum will be next, big wages they can’t afford…

  • Hunbasher says:

    I remember the same thing happening at Celtic with Paul Dalglish, the only difference being, Celtic didn’t try to “hype up” Kenny,s son. That was quite some time ago, but I don,t think anyone at the club seriously thought that Paul would be even half as good as his father. That’s the difference between the two clubs. Nobody at Celtic has been prescribed “Deludamol” tablets by their doctors.

  • Michael Clark says:

    If servco are expecting the sale of Hagi to be the answer to financial problems then they’ve got even bigger problems ahead. This guy would struggle to get a game in the English Championship forget the Premiership so even 2 million and that’s generous. Even if Beale gets the money what’s he going to buy with that.
