A number of Mark Warburton's summer signings made their Ibrox debuts on Tuesday.

A goal apiece from Barrie McKay and Martyn Waghorn sealed a 2-0 success for Mark Warburton's side, on a night when six summer recruits made their home debuts in front of 31,500 supporters.
Last season's top scorer Waghorn was again on target against Annan
Despite being some way off full capacity, the Ibrox crowd was one of the biggest of some players' careers. And for three Light Blues new boys, the old girl certainly delivered.
"Can't wait to hear it when it's full," tweeted Joey Barton, who came on for the final half an hour.
Thanks for the amazing welcome. Incredible noise for a Tuesday night against Annan. Can't wait to hear it when it's full. @RangersFC— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) July 19, 2016
And Josh Windass, who made way for Barton, posted: "Loved my first game at Ibrox."

The result followed Saturday's win against Motherwell at Fir Park - also by two goals to nil - and leaves Rangers top of Group F on goal difference.
Warburton's side travel to East Stirling for fixture number three on Friday, before Monday's home encounter with second-placed Stranraer.
The Light Blues reached the third round of the competition last season, but lost 3-1 against St. Johnstone at Ibrox.
