Waghorn delivers verdict on Rangers draw v Celtic, sends message to fans
By Dominic Toner
Rangers forward Martyn Waghorn admitted he should have done better in the draw against Celtic.
The 27-year-old was guilty of missing two great chances to score in the Old Firm clash, but was denied by goalkeeper Craig Gordon.
However, the Gers picked up a fantastic points away to Celtic in an enthralling Old Firm derby.
The Bhoys opened the scoring the first-half through Stuart Armstrong, but were pegged back in the 87th minute by a late Clint Hill goal.
Rangers managed to end Celtic’s winning run under Brendan Rodgers, who do remain unbeaten domestically this season.

Waghorn has established himself as a regular starter under caretaker boss Graeme Murty, who bowed out of the role in great fashion.
The forward will now hope to play a similar role under new manager Pedro Caixinha and spearhead the Gers attack for the rest of the campaign.
He does have a strong goal tally this season despite his failing against Celtic, scoring 14 goals in 30 appearances.
Waghorn managed 28 goals during the whole of last season and has managed to rediscover his best form in recent matches.
