Dorin Goain, a former centreback for Rangers, has just made a delusional statement in which he thinks one player could stop Celtic’s 10-in-a-row.
At some point we just have to get used to former Rangers players, managers and supporters making ridiculous claims, right? While we should, it is always fun to highlight some of the more delusional things that come out of their mouths.
Now, Dorin Goain, a former centreback for the Ibrox club from 2011-2013 and a current manager in Liga III has come out with an absurd assertion that will make even some of the more diehard supporters scratch their heads.
Goain believes that his fellow Romanian Ianis Hagi is quite possibly the key to stopping the elusive 10-in-a-row by Celtic. Let’s break this down as to why this is delusion. First, even with some of the most highly paid players in Scotland, Rangers still could not shut the door on the Hoops as the ended up 13 points behind Celtic in the table. Second, Hagi appeared 12 times last season for Rangers and was able to secure three goals. That being said, Hagi does posses a high quality of talent, and likely will give a boost to Rangers. Just not to the extent that he alone will solve all of their problem and miraculously stop Celtic.
Despite Hagi making the move to Ibrox permanent, there is absolutely nothing to suggest Hagi is the key to unlocking the Ibrox club’s ability to finally defeat the Hoops. Besides delusion, it appears Goain may just be gushing on a fellow countryman who has found himself an opportunity.
Here is what Goain had to to The Sun regarding Hagi:
“I’m confident Ianis Hagi can help Rangers stop Celtic winning their tenth title.
“I’m sure Rangers believe this too, otherwise they wouldn’t have signed him.
“They believe in Hagi and Rangers have trust in his qualities. It doesn’t matter that Celtic have won the last nine league titles.
“It depends on him, but Scottish football needs a player like Ianis Hagi.”
The talk out of Ibrox and its former players will never end. As Celtic supporters all we can do is sit back and laugh as they inevitably self-destruct every season. Meanwhile, the Hoops will continue to build their club with financial and talent pool longevity in mind.
