Star Rangers forward Martyn Waghorn hailed his team-mates as “brilliant” following his side’s win on Twitter.

The Gers earned a convincing 3-0 victory at Ibrox on Saturday in the Scottish Premiership clash with Kilmarnock.

Goals from Lee Wallace, Andy Halliday and Joe Garner made sure that Mark Warburton’s team would keep hold of all three points on home soil.

Although Waghorn didn’t get in on the goals, he was quick to hail his team-mates on his personal Twitter account, as well as describing the three points as “excellent”.

Waghorn, 26, started from the bench in the Saturday afternoon clash before coming on for Kenny Miller on the 70th minute.

The striker, who joined Rangers from Wigan in the summer of 2015 has established himself as one of the star forward’s for the team.

He has played 12 times for the club, scoring eight goals in the new campaign and he will be keen to get back into the starting line-up.

The Scottish giants are currently sat in second place, but trail nine points behind fierce rivals Celtic, who also have a game in hand.

Rangers face Ross County in the league next, who are sat second from bottom and Warburton will be looking to continue the club’s good form.
