Ianis Hagi, son of the legendary Gheorghe Hagi, took the 1% salary pledge with his fellow Romanian teammate Tudor Baluta in 2021 — making them the first Romanians to join the team.
At such a young age, the forward has already made his mark on the game. He made his professional debut at age just 16 and has since gone on to win the Scottish Premier League title during his first full season with Rangers, as well as individual awards such as Scottish Premiership Playmaker of the Season season and won Rangers Young Player of the Year.
But from the beginning of his career he's wanted to make his mark off the pitch by helping Romanian communities and people from underprivileged backgrounds.
“I’m now part of something I’ve wanted to do since I was a kid so I’m really happy I can help at a young age,” he said.
“I feel like there are so many players I’ve played with who want to do something like this and be part of a movement but they don’t know how to start.
“Players have a voice in this world. The donation we give looks small, but when so many work as a collective behind one idea, like on the pitch, it makes us stronger."
