Martyn Waghorn has thanked Rangers fans for their support after Friday evening’s 2-1 victory over Hamilton.
The 26-year-old was brought back into the team for the clash at the SuperSeal Stadium with veteran forward Kenny Miller dropping out of the side.
He repaid manager Mark Warburton’s faith in him with two goals in the match, coming at either side of half time.
His goals earned his side all three points and after the match he shared his joy on his personal Twitter account after rediscovering his scoring boots.
So pleased to be back on the scoresheet again. Great win & performance and big win for boys! Thank you for the support. ??????⚽️?⚪️? pic.twitter.com/AEkfbEb8sA

Waghorn was fantastic in Rangers’ promotion campaign last season, scoring 28 goals in 36 fixtures.
However, he has struggled in the initial stages of Scotland’s top flight, scoring just one goal in 11 appearances before Friday evening.
He will now be hoping that his two goals against Hamilton will be the start of a scoring run, where he will be looking to ensure that Rangers finish in second place.
The famous Ibrox side are currently occupying second, but Aberdeen are still hot on their heels in third.
They will face Inverness in the league next on Christmas Eve, who are currently one point off bottom spot.
