Martyn Waghorn has told a fan that it’s “great to be back,” as the striker returned to the Rangers team after suffering a hamstring injury in the Gers’ first league game of the season.

The star forward suffered a hamstring injury against Hamilton and hadn’t featured for the side until Saturday’s testimonial match against Linfield.

A fan posted on their personal Twitter account that they were glad to see Waghorn back after he made a 56th minute substitute appearance in the match.

The 26-year-old forward replied to the fan via his personal Twitter account and said that it was great to be back in the team.

Waghorn moved to Rangers last summer from Wigan.

He has starred in 40 encounters for the Scotland giants scoring 33 goals and played a key role in the side’s return to the Scottish top flight in the last campaign.

He has two years left on his current contract and Rangers supporters will be happy to see the return of their star forward with a clash against fierce rivals Celtic coming up next.

Mark Warburton’s side have made a good start in their first season back in the Scottish Premiership with two wins and two draws which sees them currently sitting in second place in the league, behind rivals Celtic.
