Martyn Waghorn and James Tavernier were both signed by Rangers during the summer transfer window.

Colin Stein has told Rangers' official website that he has been very impressed by Martyn Waghorn and James Tavernier so far this season. 

Stein, who is in the Gers hall of fame, has been an avid viewer of Mark Warburton's new-look side, and Waghorn and Tavernier, in particular, have caught his eye.

The two summer signings have played prominent roles in the Light Blues' first-team, and Stein has been wowed by what he has seen. 

"Waghorn’s goal ratio is very good, especially given he plays wide a lot of the time," Stein said. "He’s sharp, his work rate is great and he’s a good target man too.

“The strikers at Rangers are getting a lot more service this season. They’re using the wings and it’s definitely helped.

“James Tavernier has impressed me, too. To have scored that many goals, as a right back, is pretty good going. He’s very attack-minded and more like a right winger.”

Waghorn boasts an incredible record since moving to Rangers, with the striker netting 14 goals in as many matches to kick off his Ibrox career.

Tavernier's goalscoring run has arguably been even more impressive, though, considering that he has been playing in defence. 

The right-back has netted nine times in 14 appearances for Warburton's side, highlighting his attacking intent. 

Waghorn and Tavernier have been key contributors to Rangers' good form, and they have helped the Glasgow outfit to establish a nine-point lead at the top of the Scottish Championship table.
