Rangers have confirmed Ianis Hagi has signed a long-term contract at Ibrox.
Genk announced on Tuesday night that Rangers had taken up the option to sign the Romanian international following his loan spell.
The 21-year-old told Rangers’ website: “I am excited about rejoining the squad for pre-season and putting on the famous shirt once again.
“There was interest from other clubs, but my priority was always to return to Glasgow and play for Rangers.”
Rangers manager Steven Gerrard described Hagi as an “exciting player”.
He added: “I was able to develop a relationship with Ianis very quickly. He is a pleasure to coach as he is willing to learn and become better every training session.
“He has already experienced the pressure and expectation of Ibrox, I know he is ready for next season.”
The attacking midfielder later tweeted: “I’m extremely happy and proud to be part of the Rangers FC family and represent the colours of such a huge club permanently.
“I can’t wait to meet up with the boys, play at Ibrox again and keep enjoying moments with our amazing fans.
“I also want to thank KRC Genk.”
