Waghorn: It has been hard graft adjusting to this Caixinha change

By Matt Farr

Rangers attacker Martyn Waghorn has admitted it has been hard work adjusting to training six days a week.

The six-day working week was just one of a host of changes implemented by new Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha following his arrival at the club in March.

As quoted by the club’s official Twitter account on Thursday afternoon, Waghorn revealed that adjusting to the change had been tough, but hoped that their efforts will be rewarded on the pitch.

Waghorn’s Rangers team mates have largely met Caixinha’s demanding schedule in good spirits, with first team duo Emerson Hyndman and Lee Hodson insisting it would be ideal for their development.

But their increased work on the training ground appears to be paying off on the big stage, with Rangers having gone unbeaten since the Portuguese took charge at Ibrox.

Rangers have dropped points against winnable opposition on two occasions, but showed great character and spirit to pull-off a late victory over rivals Aberdeen last time out.

Nevertheless, there is still plenty work to be done by Rangers in the coming weeks, with the club still trailing Aberdeen by nine points in the race to finish second in the Scottish Premiership.

They face Partick Thistle at Ibrox on Saturday, before a crucial double-header with Old Firm rivals Celtic at the end of the month.
