Rangers fans react on Twitter to Garner display against Dundee
By Will Butcher
Rangers fans were delighted for Joe Garner on Twitter as the striker broke a long-standing goalscoring drought that stretched back to October 2016.
The 28-year-old scored just his fourth goal for the Gers since his move to Glasgow from Championship outfit Preston North End last summer for £1.5million.
Rangers’ number seven found the back of the net with a wonderful strike, as he cut inside before unleashing an unstoppable drive that wrong footed Dundee goalkeeper Scott Bain.
However, the versatile forward’s goal proved to be just a consolation, as Dundee went on to secure a 2-1 win at Dens Park.
Rangers fans were thrilled for their stuttering striker, with many hoping that Garner can now kick on and begin to repay the 54-time Scottish champions after they coughed up a large transfer fee for the forward.

Garner has been played in a number of positions in the final third this season, as the Gers look to include him alongside the likes of Kenny Miller and Martyn Waghorn.
However, his form has been inconsistent at best but caretaker boss Graeme Murty will be hoping the goal can kick start his Gers career.
