World Cup winner Rivaldo believes Steven Gerrard’s first signing as Liverpool boss could be his Rangers star Ianis Hagi. Gerrard might have dismissed speculation suggesting he will take over as Liverpool manager in the short term future. However, that hasn’t stopped one player from being tipped as his potential first signing should he ever returns to Anfield as manager.

Son of Romania legend Gheorghe, the playmaker joined Rangers permanently last summer following a successful half-season stint on loan from Genk and has impressed for the Gers this season, scoring six goals from 27 appearances as they won the Scottish Premiership title last weekend.

“I am sure Gerrard will go to Liverpool one day,” the Brazil legend was quoted as saying by Romanian journalist Emanuel Roşu (@Emishor on Twitter). “Maybe Ianis Hagi could make the step with him and follow him to Anfield.”
