Rangers fans react on Twitter to Martyn Waghorn's goal

Rangers' Martyn Waghorn (L) in action with Kilmarnock's Steven Smith

Ibrox side Glasgow Rangers beat Watford in a friendly last night.

Martyn Waghorn scored a late winner in Rangers' behind-closed-doors friendly win over Watford on Wednesday night.

It was Rangers' penultimate warm-up clash before the Scottish Premiership season kicks off on August 5, with the Gers facing Motherwell a day later on the Sunday.

And Pedro Caixinha's side have further restored a sense of optimism, drawing 1-1 with Marseille at the weekend after being eliminated from the Europa League by Progres in arguably the club's worst ever result.

Waghorn looks like he is staying with the Ibrox side this season, despite the striker scoring just seven times in 32 Premiership outings last season.

And plenty of Rangers fans on Twitter seemed surprised that the 27-year-old still knows the way to goal.

It remains to be seen what Caixinha expects of the striker this season. Of course, goals are a forward's bread and butter but will be play enough?

The Portuguese boss has already recruited Alfredo Morelos and Eduardo Herrera, while evergreen Kenny Miller will also compete for a starting role up front so time will tell what sort of role awaits Waghorn.
