Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham was ecstatic on Twitter following the club’s emphatic 5-0 win against Queen of the South in the Betfred Cup.

Mark Warburton’s side strolled to a superb victory at Ibrox on Tuesday night, with star striker Martyn Waghorn scoring an impressive hat-trick.

Former Swindon goalkeeper Foderingham revealed his delight on his personal Twitter account with the attacking spearhead’s impact, claiming Waghorn’s goals were down to “unreal finishing”.

The former Leicester goal machine struck a 20-minute hat-trick in what was a close encounter, before Waghorn netted the Gers’ third of the night in the 63rd minute, just one minute after Andy Halliday had put Rangers 2-0 up.

The 26-year-old had failed to find the net after recovering from a hamstring injury that had previously kept him sidelined for a month, missing the target against Celtic and Ross County.

But his the hat-trick takes him to eight goals for the season in just seven league and cup encounters.

Goalkeeper Foderingham also revealed that he was happy to see new signing Matt Crooks recover from injury to take to the field for his Gers bow, after struggling to overcome an ankle injury he suffered during his time with Accrington Stanley.

The Gers’ focus is once again on the lead, as they travel to face title challenger Aberdeen on Saturday.
