Rangers star Martyn Waghorn rates these two Scottish Championship rivals highly

Rangers forward Martyn Waghorn speaks highly of Falkirk striker John Baird and Hibernian midfielder John McGinn.

Rangers star Martyn Waghorn has revealed to Sky Sports that he voted for Falkirk striker John Baird for the PFA Scotland Championship Player of the Year award.

The 26-year-old former Sunderland and Leicester City forward has also disclosed that he backed 21-year-old Hibernian midfielder John McGinn for the Young Player of the Year award.

Waghorn, who has scored 28 goals for Rangers this season, has also been nominated for the PFA Scotland Championship Player of the Year award, along with his Rangers teammate Lee Wallace.

"It's a fantastic honour to be nominated for this award by your fellow pros, and it's nice to be acknowledged,” the Englishman told Sky Sports. “I've never achieved anything like this before and I have a lot to thank my team-mates for. I voted for John Baird of Falkirk. He's really gone under the radar but he's had a great year.

“And for young player I voted for John McGinn of Hibs. He got his international call-up and he's played some cracking stuff this season.”

Rangers have already won the Scottish Championship title this campaign and will feature in the Scottish Premiership next season.

The Gers have also clinched the Scottish Challenge Cup and have progressed to the final of the Scottish Cup.

Falkirk are second in the Scottish Championship table at the moment, while Hibernian are currently third in the standings. Hibs have reached the final of the Scottish Cup and will face Rangers.
