Rangers new boy Martyn Waghorn admits he needs to get his career back on track

Rangers 3

Rangers striker Martyn Waghorn has scored 14 times in his first 13 games for the club since arriving over the summer.

Martyn Waghorn has told Rangers' official website that he is aiming to get his career back on track at Ibrox.

The 25-year-old was struggling to get games before his move north of the border, but he has been a revelation for Mark Warburton's side since signing over the summer. 

Waghorn has netted 14 times in his first 13 games for the Gers, and scored his first hat-trick for the club in their most recent fixture against Morton. 

And the striker has said of his good form: “I think I am just settled playing games and the run of games has just helped me get into a routine and the momentum falls into place. I just want to work hard, keep it going and hopefully more goals will come.

“It was important in the summer when I came to Rangers to play games and get my career back on track.

“I’d had a difficult 18 months, I’d been in and out of the team with a few injuries and coming here is a good platform and a great place to come and play football.

“I can only get better as a footballer and I am going to work hard and develop and hopefully my success continues and when I hit 20 goals I will re-evaluate and we’ll go from there.”

Waghorn burst on to the scene as a talented youngster while on loan at Leicester City, for whom he scored 12 goals in 43 games as a teenager.

However, ever since joining the Foxes on a permanent deal in 2010 he has struggled, with most of his time being spent out on loan.

Waghorn played for the likes of Hull City, Wigan Athletic and Millwall on a temporary basis, but he was never a prolific marksman for any of them.

However, in Warburton's team, he has finally started to show his goalscoring instincts, and his finishing prowess is rapidly making him a firm fans' favourite at his new club.
