Rangers forward Martyn Waghorn believes the club are in for a good season following the additions made and the quality which boss Mark Warburton now has at his disposal, the Evening Times reports.
Waghorn finished last season as the Gers’ top scorer in his debut campaign at the club following his switch from Wigan Athletic, scoring 28 goals in all competitions in 36 outings.
The former Sunderland man built up a decent partnership with Kenny Miller and Barrie McKay, and this coming season he has new signings Josh Windass and Nijo Kranjcar which will bolster the attacking threat.
Talking to reporters, Waghorn believes the Scottish Premiership club are fortunate to have such attacking riches at their disposal now and confidently predicts a good year ahead at Ibrox.
“I think we are very fortunate with the quality of player we’ve got – the likes of Kenny Miller, Barrie McKay and me and we have added Josh Windass and Niko Krancjar,” he told the Evening Times.
“The options are good and the competition keeps you on your toes. It’s a good mixture because we are all different players. The competition is there, the quality is undoubted and I think it’s going to be a good year.”
Add in January signing Michael O’Halloran and youngsters Ryan Hardie and Tom Walsh and Rangers have the pick of a number of decent attacking options for the season ahead.
Warburton has been busy in the transfer market in adding experience to his young squad, and the Gers now have the look of a side capable of challenging Celtic for the league title.
Waghorn’s ability in front of goal in particular will be key to the side’s success, and having a number of players competing with him for a first-team spot should make him that bit more determined.
