Rangers striker Martyn Waghorn scored two goals against Alloa Athletic at Ibrox in the Scottish Championship on Saturday.

Rangers striker Martyn Waghorn has explained on the club’s official website why he is disappointed despite scoring twice against Alloa Athletic at home in the Scottish Championship on Saturday afternoon.

Waghorn continued his brilliant run of form this season with a brace in the 4-0 win at Ibrox in Glasgow.

The 25-year-old, who joined the Gers from English League One outfit Wigan Athletic in the summer transfer window, was frustrated that he could not complete his hat-trick against Alloa.

Explaining his failure to find the target from just four yards with the goal wide open in the first half, the former Sunderland and Leicester City striker told Rangers’ official website: “I think I just took my eye off it at the last minute, thinking it was going to be a goal.

“It was a lack of concentration and that was poor from me – I needed to hit the ball and hit the target, and it was very disappointing. That one has annoyed me the most as it was so simple. But it’s one of those things.”

Over the course of the 90 minutes at Ibrox, hosts Rangers had 70% of the possession, took 25 shots of which 11 were on target, and earned nine corner.

Visitors Alloa had just 30% of the possession, took two shots of which none was on target, and failed to earn a single corner.

Rangers are at the top of the Scottish Championship table at the moment with 36 points from 13 matches, five points clear of second-place Hibernian.
