Striker Martyn Waghorn has given his thanks to the Rangers fans on Twitter after completing his move to English Championship club Ipswich on Monday morning.
The 27-year-old was confirmed to have signed for the Tractor Boys by the Suffolk-based club’s official Twitter account and website after being left out of the Gers’ season opening victory over Motherwell on Sunday afternoon.

The move comes after a disappointing 2016-17 season for the South Shields-born forward, which saw him score 16 goals in 41 matches in all competitions, including just seven in 32 Premiership matches.
However, his departing message was a good one and via his personal Twitter account he posted his thanks to the fans through his good and bad spell and told that he he will always be a supporter of the Ibrox giants.

Waghorn joined Rangers in the summer of 2015 from English side Wigan while the Ibrox giants were sat in the Scottish second tier.
He had a great debut campaign at the club, scoring 28 goals in 36 matches in all competitions as well as being named Rangers Players’ Player of the Year after the 2015-16 season.
He will now be looking to have similar success with Ipswich, while Rangers fans won’t forget his contribution in helping the club win promotion.
