Waghorn makes big Twitter admission in wake of Rangers win

By Dominic Toner

Martyn Waghorn believes he could have played better in the Rangers victory against Inverness.

Rangers recorded a narrow 1-0 win in the league on Friday night and Kenny Miller grabbed his 100th goal for the club.

Waghorn, 26, has endured a mixed start to the new campaign in his first taste of the Scottish Premiership.

The forward has been in impressive form in the League Cup, scoring seven goals in just four appearances.

However, he has struggled to recreate that form in the league and scored just one goal to date.

Waghorn revealed his disappointment with his own individual performance against Inverness, but praised veteran striker Miller for his personal achievement.

“Personally I could have been better tonight,” Waghorn wrote on his personal Twitter account. “Full credit tot he boys to come away with three points. Buzzing for Kenny.”

Waghorn was replaced in the second-half by manager Mark Warburton, with youngster Joe Dodoo entering the field after 70 minutes.

Waghorn moved to Ibrox in 2015 and enjoy the perfect first season with the club.

The Englishman fired Rangers to the Scottish Championship title and was in impressive goal scoring form all year, scoring 28 goals in just 36 appearances across all competitions.

He will be hopeful of recreating that form this season as the club adjust to the top-flight.

Rangers’ next fixture see’s them take on the Hoops in the Scottish League Cup semi-final next Sunday.

The Gers will be keen to avenge a humiliating 5-1 defeat suffered at the hands of their greatest rivals earlier in the season.
