Rangers boss Mark Warburton dismisses rumours of row with striker Martyn Waghorn

RANGERS manager Mark Warburton has assured a frustrated Martyn Waghorn his time will come.

Warburton described reports of a disagreement between the pair as “ludicrous” and stated that the answer to being left out of the team was to work harder.

Waghorn, Rangers’ top goalscorer last season, has had to be content with coming off the bench for the past four matches.

The former Leicester and Wigan striker suffered a hamstring injury in the Ladbrokes Premiership opener against Hamilton and has not scored a league goal since, although he bagged a cup hat-trick against Queen of the South.

Warburton said: “I read a report that we had a big fallout, which was quite interesting.

“Waggy knocked on the door and said: ‘Have we fallen out gaffer?’ I said: ‘Not as far as I’m aware, Waggy’. Far from it.

“He started five games in a row. He wants to play football, of course he does. When he is starting there are other guys that are frustrated. The decision (assistant manager) David (Weir) and I made was to increase the squad size from 21 to 23 because last year we literally ran out of bodies by the cup final.

“So we had to add numbers, which we did. That means if everyone is fit and well you are going to have one or two frustrated players.

“The answer? Work harder, just work harder. The hard work will be recognised and we will pick you. But there is no doubt about Waggy’s attitude. He is a first-class professional.

“He is frustrated but he shows it by working harder. When his time comes, which it will do shortly, then I’m sure he will be in shape to take it.”
