Brilliant, a tremendous talent with unreal vision. Give him the 10 jersey and play him there. Make him the star of the team. Get him on the Castore billboards in the new shirt and sell thousands.

Who knows how we'll line up next season mate - but I feel that if we can physically beef up the CM then hopefully it can give guys like Kent and potentially Hagi a platform to play off of.
My ideal midfield would be Hagi, Jack and a box to box type midfielder with an eye for goal. That would be a great combination I think and as you say free up Kent and another winger to run at defenders.

The size of the fee concerns me a tad because for me, he looked a little less suited to the rough and tumble of the SPL and disappeared out of games with the rest.

But, if I’m being an optimist, he clearly has ability, he clearly has vision most of our squad just don’t have, he’s young to he should improve considerably and somewhat adapt to the SPL, and at the end of the day if you don’t roll the dice you can’t possibly win.

There's no question he struggled away from Ibrox in domestic games, Perth and Kilmarnock come to mind.

However, I'm hoping that after a good pre season, he could be a big player for us.

I'm sure our manager will utilise him properly, in a central attacking position behind the striker.

It will need a change of formation though.

Going to be a total killjoy.

Our form and results before we signed him was far better than after he joined.

No doubting his ability at all, and I know he provided some match winning moments at Ibrox, but will he turn dropped points at tough away grounds into wins? He didn't before.

Hagi doesn't play in midfield though, he has to play further forward.

Nobody played well after we signed him though
He certainly showed enough that we can see has the potential to be a top player

Please don’t reply with Michael Beale’s comments of playing two tens - I’m sure it was nice in theory but it was, for the most part, fucking hopeless in reality and put Hagi and Kent out of their natural positions - but Gerrard MUST adjust his formation to get the best out of him.

Domestically at least.

A player with genuine class atm without having the “developing player” caveat hanging over him. Exciting times

We were so disjointed as a team after January. Constant changes to personnel and tweaks to formations, we absolutely didn't get the best out of the players available to us.

As you say, after a good pre-season and some friendlies we can find our groove again. Hagi has what it takes to be the maverick player we've not really had in midfield for a while who can create and score out of nothing.

Needs to be played through the middle. Hopefully he can help us to a couple of titles and CL group stages and then we can punt him for a fortune.

He did at hibs and turned it around against Braga. Give the kid a chance he was only through the door. This is a fantastic signing and our best in years.

You could also look at it from the perspective where we were so poor and our form became so horrific in the second half of the season (which wasn’t his fault) that he actually prevented us from being even worse. He almost single-handedly won us the games against Hibs and Braga at home, and had a big hand in narrow wins against Livingston and Braga away. I actually dread to think how much further behind we’d have been without him.

He directly contributed to us winning 4 games within a month and a half, and in that time frame we only had a few domestic away games. That’s barely any time for anyone, nevermind a foreign player, to adjust.

absolutely, more mature, better formed relationships. Next level time for likes of Kent, Aribo and Hagi
I think we'll see a few from that team leave and a few come in. Next to improve can't stand still. Especially not after what happened post winter break. Change is needed.

Not only does 4-2-3-1 put Kent and Hagi in more natural positions, it puts Aribo in the position he played best in all season and it gives us an extra attacker which we need domestically instead of the usual 3 midfielders sitting back doing %^*& all.

Nobody will be happier than me if my post gets thrown in my face in a few months time.
I just worry that he was mostly anonymous in every domestic away game he played, that Livingston game was at Ibrox. These were games we were struggling and a match changing Number 10 creative player was exactly what we needed.
I honestly look forward to be proven wrong.
