Martyn Waghorn has described Rangers’ 1-0 defeat against fierce rivals Celtic on Sunday as a “disappointing result”, but has said the team will get ready again to face St Johnstone on Wednesday.

Mark Warburton’s side fell to a loss in their Scottish League Cup semi-final clash following an 88th minute strike from star Hoops forward Moussa Dembele.

It is the second time Brendan Rodgers’ side have beat them in the new campaign and it will have caused a lot of pain for supporters of the club as well as the staff and players.

Now Waghorn took to his personal Twitter account on Tuesday afternoon for the first time following the defeat to share his disappointment, but stated the club will be prepared for their next encounter.

Waghorn, 26, joined Rangers from Wigan in 2015 and has become a key part of Warburton’s team.

The striker has played in 11 encounters for his club in the new campaign, scoring 11 goals.

He will be looking to add to his goal tally on Wednesday at Ibrox, which will see Rangers in fifth place take on St Johnstone in fourth place.

The Gers still have a game in hand and just two points separate the pair in the league as they are set to face each other in an enthralling encounter on Wednesday evening.

In other Rangers news, Jordan Rossiter and Danny Wilson have both been ruled out of the Gers’ clash against St. Johnstone on Wednesday night.
