Rangers star Martyn Waghorn provides positive injury update

Martyn Waghorn has netted 28 times for Rangers this season.

Rangers striker Martyn Waghorn has told reporters how he has returned to training following a knee injury he picked up back in February, the Evening Times report.

The former Leicester City man has been in superb form this season, netting 28 league goals as the Ibrox side stormed to the Scottish Championship title and earned promotion back to the top-flight.

After missing Gers’ Scottish Cup semi-final clash with Celtic, Waghorn will be desperate to make the final against Hibernian and top off a wonderful campaign with an impressive treble.

Talking to reporters on his current condition, the striker says he has now rejoined first-team training before thanking the club’s physios and his fellow team-mates for helping him in his recovery.

“I had my first contact training session with the boys on Friday so everything seems to be going in the right direction for the Scottish Cup final. I’ve got a lot to thank the physios for and the boys behind the scenes who really helped me,” he explained to the Evening Times.

While in his absence the likes of Kenny Miller has stepped up to the plate, Waghorn is undoubtedly a key figure for Mark Warburton’s side and everyone connected with Rangers are desperate for him to return.

After winning the Championship and the Petrofac Training Cup, the Glasgow club have the chance to complete a memorable campaign with a Scottish Cup victory.

Hibs stand in their way, and Rangers will want Waghorn back fit and firing in time to play the Edinburgh side.
