Rangers hero Joe Dodoo takes to Twitter to celebrate match-winning cameo

Joe Dodoo of Leicester City celebrates with the matchball at the end of the game

Mark Warburton's Rangers took three points back to Ibrox this afternoon.

Rangers picked up a hard-fought win against Partick Thistle in the Scottish Premiership this weekend.

The Gers looked like they might have to settle for a draw, after substitute Joe Dodoo had equalised in the 81st minute, cancelling out Kris Doolan’s 76th minute opener at Firhill.

But substitute Dodoo then struck again to help the Glasgow side snatch a late victory.

The winger, whose first goal was a well-struck volley, went on to slot into the back of the net after a pass from Kenny Miller.

It was a brilliant cameo from the substitute and he was certainly happy to have played the role of hero.

He sent out this tweet after the game, expressing his joy at the result:

He was not alone in being on Twitter after the game.

Plenty of his Rangers team-mates also tweeted after the game, excited at their last-gasp win.

The likes of Harry Forrester, Jordan Rossiter and Wes Foderingham all took to Twitter to congratulate Dodoo – who has struggled to make a big impact at Ibrox since his move from Leicester City:

The 21-year-old will be hoping this is the start of a more regular role in the first-team.
