Rangers fans react on Twitter to Martyn Waghorn hamstring injury

By Dominic Toner

Martyn Waghorn was forced off injured in Ranger’s 1-1 draw against Hamilton on Saturday – and fans are worried about losing their main goalscorer.

The forward scored the equaliser for his team in their Scottish Premiership curtainraiser but had to leave the pitch with 10 minutes remaining with a suspected hamstring injury, leaving Rangers to play out the rest of the match with 10 men.

Waghorn had cancelled out Ali Crawford’s strike for Hamilton with a 62nd minute strike before breaking down.

Twitter has reacted to the injury with some concern amid fears the club could suffer in the coming weeks without their talisman.

The forward had an excellent 2015-16 season, topping the Rangers’ scoring charts with 20 in the league and 28 in all competitions.

Waghorn previously had spells in English football, most notably at Leicester City and Wigan Athletic during his earlier years.

He will be hoping to replicate his recent form in Scotland’s top-flight and is off the mark already in the golden boot race, but could be handicapped if he is ruled out for a few weeks.

Mark Warburton has several options to replace Waghorn including Kenny Miller, Josh Windass and Joe youngster Dodoo, however they will be trying to fill very big shoes.

In other Rangers team news, devastated Windass has revealed why he was not in the squad to face Hamilton.
