Martyn Waghorn states desire for long-term stay at Rangers

Martyn Waghorn has scored 14 goals in his first 14 matches for Rangers.

Martyn Waghorn has insisted to the Glasgow Evening Times that he is planning a long-term stay with Rangers. 

The striker moved to Ibrox in the summer transfer window, and has been an instant hit - as he has quickly found his feet in Mark Warburton's side. 

Waghorn has netted 14 goals in as many games to kick-start his career at the Gers, and he is planning to have a long and successful career in Scotland. 

“It’s about seeing how far I can go with Rangers. I’m here for, hopefully, a long time and I want to achieve a lot during that time," he said to the Glasgow Evening Times

“I think where Rangers can go in the next couple of years is why I came here. I want to be part of something successful and really achieve a lot of things at this club.

“If I can get us back into the Premier League and qualify for Europe, then go from there.

“So I don’t see this as a stepping stone to go anywhere else. This is where I want to be.”

It has been a while since Waghorn has felt settled, and his career in England had stalled prior to his move north of the border.

The 25-year-old burst onto the scene as a talented teenager and was snapped up by Leicester City, but since his move to the King Power, things haven't gone to plan.

Waghorn has spent most of his time in recent seasons out on loan, and he struggled to find the net with any regularity.

However, he has thrived since being made part of Warburton's set-up, and it seems that he is loving life with his new club.
