Rangers legend makes a confident prediction about Mark Warburton’s team

Rangers will win the Scottish Championship title despite Martyn Waghorn’s injury, claims former Gers midfielder Barry Ferguson.

Barry Ferguson has predicted in The Daily Record that Rangers will win the Scottish Championship title despite the injury to Martyn Waghorn.

Waghorn has been ruled out for six to eight weeks due to a knee injury (click here to read more).

The 26-year-old forward has been arguably Rangers’ best player so far this season. The former Sunderland and Leicester City man has scored 28 goals in all competitions for the Gers so far this campaign.

Ferguson, who played for the Gers in the 1990s and noughties and is a club legend, believes that Mark Warburton’s side will win the league title despite the injury blow.

“So is his squad strong enough to win the league now that his top scorer is out of action?” the former Rangers midfielder wrote in The Daily Record.

“I’d say right now, yes it is, but there is also no doubt that the club is taking a bit of a punt and the manager will be desperate to keep the rest of his big players fit and available for the rest of the run-in.”

Rangers are at the top of the Scottish Championship table at the moment with 60 points from 24 matches. The Glasgow giants are eight points clear of second-placed Hibernian, who have a game in hand.

The Gers will return to action on Sunday afternoon when they take on Queen of the South away from home at Palmerston Park in the Scottish Championship.
