Martyn Waghorn has called on his fellow Rangers forwards to put away their chances against Celtic on Sunday.
The Gers go up against their Old Firm rivals for the second time this season in the semi final of the Betfred Cup, and Waghorn is expected to start as Mark Warburton’s attacking spearhead.
Waghorn, who has scored eight times this season, was quoted by Rangers’ official Twitter account as saying that chances will be limited but they his teammates must take them.

Former Leicester striker Waghorn is likely to play through the middle of an attacking front three, with in-form veteran Kenny Miller and £1.5million signing Joe Garner expected to join him.
The Gers will be looking to overturn the dismal 5-1 defeat to Brendan Rodgers’ side last time the Old Firm rivals met, as they both teams look to book their place in the final of the Betfred Cup.
Rangers go into the game off the back of an impressive 1-0 away victory against Inverness on Friday, and will be well rested ahead of the crunch match.
Celtic though, will be reeling off the back of a poor showing in the Champions League on Wednesday night after losing 2-0 to Gladbach and will be looking to put things right against Rangers on Sunday.
Aberdeen or Morton will also be looking to get their hands on the trophy, and they meet in the other semi-final on Saturday.
