Hibernian forward names the Rangers star he voted for in PFA award

Ibrox side Rangers have already won the Scottish Championship this season and have gained automatic promotion to the Scottish Premiership.

Hibernian forward Jason Cummings has told the Scottish Sun that he voted for Rangers star Martyn Waghorn for the PFA Scotland Championship Player of the Year award.

Rangers pair Lee Wallace and Waghorn, and Hibernian duo Cummings and John McGinn are the four nominees for the prestigious award.

“I voted for Waghorn,” Cummings told The Scottish Sun. “Being a striker as well, I know how hard it is to score goals.

“He has scored 28 and done it despite being injured for the last couple of months. To score that amount of goals to games played is unbelievable, so I have to give him credit for that.”

Waghorn has been one of the best players in the Scottish Championship this season and has been a key player for Rangers.

The 26-year-old forward has scored as many as 28 goals so far this campaign, helping the Gers win the Scottish Championship title with ease.

The former Leicester City and Wigan Athletic man’s performances become even more impressive when one considers that he has suffered with injuries this season.

Waghorn will be a key player for Rangers in the Scottish Premiership next season. The former Sunderland forward will have to adapt his game quickly to the top flight of Scottish football, though, as it is be tougher than the Scottish Championship.
