Under former Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou, the 75-time England international won two Premiership crowns, two League

Cups, and one Scottish Cup in his first two seasons there.

But the seasoned goalie is getting close to the end of his playing days, and he has occasionally faced criticism for his efforts this season.

It seems doubtful that the 36-year-old will stay at Celtic past the summer, when his current contract is set to expire.

Although Brendan Rodgers is reportedly anxious to acquire a new custodian, he is content to start Hart in goal for the

balance of the season.

The Romanian international Horatiu Moldovan was strongly connected to a January transfer to the Hoops.

But this month, the former custodian for FC Rapid București made the decision to sign with Atletico Madrid.

Real Madrid custodian Andriy Lunin is reportedly one among the team’s summer transfer targets, but his price tag might be

a deal-breaker, according to Football Insider.

Other candidates brought up were Fraser Forster, the former custodian who is currently with Tottenham Hotspur, and

Caoimhin Kelleher of Liverpool.

Rangers midfielder warned that he ‘needs to fight harder’ to make Euro 2024 squad

Ianis Hagi, a midfielder for Rangers, has been informed that unless he improves his club play, he may not be able to compete

in the European Championship in Germany this summer.

The Romanian international was sent out by former manager Michael Beale in August, and he is currently halfway through a

season-long loan term at Spanish team Alaves.

Hagi has only made 14 appearances and six starts in La Liga thus far. He has not scored a single goal and has only

contributed one assist during that period.

Edi Iordanescu, the Romanian manager, is eager to see progress from a player who was instrumental in the Rangers’

2020–21 championship victory.

He made the following remarks on Ianis Hagi: “I told him that he has to fight harder and establish himself at his club if he

wants to make a great impression at the Euros, and I know all our fans are keen to see this.

I travelled to Spain to reassure him that I thought highly of him as a player, but he still needs to start more games.

We do, however, have fewer elite players. Ianis needs to play more even if he plays in one of the top leagues in the world.

“There are positive signs, but there are some negative signs as well,” Iordanescu continued.

I’ve tried to respond quickly to issues since taking over the team on the first day, which is why I visited Ianis.

I went there to send him a message of confidence since I trust him. I also had a conversation with his club’s coaches.

I think he will contribute significantly to the team for the remainder of the campaign.”

Hagi is scheduled to return from his loan stint at the end of the current season, with two and a half years left on his current

contract at Ibrox.
