Martyn Waghorn delights Rangers fans with cheeky response to Ibrox side's Instagram post

Martyn Waghorn of Rangers reacts during the Scottish Premier League match between Rangers and Inverness Caledonian Thistle at Ibrox Stadium on December 24, 2016 in Glasgow, Scotland.

The striker left Rangers 18 months ago, a year before Steven Gerrard's arrival at Ibrox.

The one-time Ibrox striker, Martyn Waghorn, has posted a cheeky response to Rangers' post-Kilmarnock Instagram update.

Rangers drew the Scottish Cup fifth tie 0-0 at Rugby Park, ensuring a replay back at Ibrox later this month.

 

But in a week where Rangers have seen two players banned for alleged violent conduct, Steven Gerrard's side can count themselves unfortunate not to have spent the final 65 minutes with a man advantage, after Alan Power's high-foot challenge on Ryan Jack, for which the Killie midfielder was only booked.

And the Gers were keen to highlight the perceived injustice by posting a still of the incident on Instagram.

It prompted Waghorn to reply: "Was this a yellow for Jacko?" - much to the delight of several of a Rangers persuasion.

Gerrard declined to comment on whether he thought Power's tackle had warranted a harsher punishment from the referee, Alan Muir, but was quoted by the Scotsman as saying: "I’ll be interested to see whether there’s a citing. I don’t know who points the citings out – but I’ll be interested to see what happens."

Waghorn scored twice as Derby County beat Hull City 2-0 on Saturday, to surpass a century of career goals - the bulk of which arrived as a Rangers player.
