Rangers' James Tavernier sends message on Twitter to injured Ibrox team-mate Martyn Waghorn

Rangers star James Tavernier says Martyn Waghorn will come back stronger.

Rangers full back James Tavernier has taken to Twitter this evening in order to offer his support to injured team-mate Martyn Waghorn.

Waghorn, 26, joined the Gers from Wigan Athletic over the summer, and has been one of Mark Warburton's key players at Ibrox this season.

On Tuesday, Waghorn took his tally for the season to 28 goals, converting from the penalty spot against Kilmarnock after being fouled inside the area.

However, Waghorn was almost immediately substituted after scoring the goal, having suffered knee damage in the tackle which led to the penalty.

Rangers confirmed on their official website earlier today that Waghorn's injury isn't as serious as first feared, but he will still miss 'a number of weeks' as he recovers from his knee injury.

Given his goal record this season, Rangers will no doubt miss Waghorn's ability in the final third, and his team-mate James Tavernier has offered his support.

Tavernier followed Waghorn from Wigan to Rangers over the summer, and the pair have linked up down the right hand side on a number of occasions this season - but now, Tavernier won't have Waghorn ahead of him.

Now, Tavernier has taken to Twitter to state that he thinks Waghorn will come back even stronger from his injury, and says he is going to miss playing alongside Waghorn during his recovery...

How much will Rangers miss Waghorn?
