Martyn Waghorn sends message on Twitter to clarify comments about Rangers signings

Rangers are reportedly keen on signing a host of players this summer.

Rangers striker Martyn Waghorn has taken to Twitter to claim that adding quality players will help the team, regardless of a player's history.

The Gers earned promotion from the Scottish Championship this season, with Waghorn's stunning 28-goal certainly aiding Mark Warburton's push for the title.

With promotion guaranteed, Rangers are looking to make new signings for the improved competition of the top flight, and some players have already signed on the dotted line.

Accrington Stanley duo Matt Crooks and Josh Windass penned pre-contract agreements back in January, and the Gers also landed Liverpool teenager Jordan Rossiter last week.

This week, some huge names have been linked with the club, as the Press and Journal note how the Gers have entered into talks with Joey Barton and Niko Kranjcar, both of whom are former Premier League stars.

The move for Barton is a little controversial, given some of his misdemeanours during his career in England, and striker Waghorn told the Daily Mail on Wednesday that the current squad wouldn't tolerate anybody stepping out of line, including Barton.

Today, Waghorn has taken to Twitter to clarify his comments, stating that he thinks adding any quality players will improve the team, and players can only be judged on their present actions rather than anything they have done in the past.
