Former Rangers striker Martyn Waghorn, is in a rich vein of form south of the border.

The 29-year-old left Ibrox for Ipswich Town in August 2017, for a undisclosed fee suggested to be less than £1 million.

Ever since, he’s been proving that Rangers should have got a lot more for him.

In his first and only season at Portman Road, he notched an excellent 16 goals and eleven assists.

Unsurprisingly, that attracted the attentions of bigger players in England’s second tier.

He was on the move again in the summer, joining Frank Lampard’s Derby County.

Initially, he struggled to make an impact.


However, of late, he has been incredibly influential.

With his team up against it in an FA Cup replay at Southampton in mid-January, he popped up with the expertly taken header that took the tie to extra time, before slotting home a penalty in the resulting shootout.

He was the FA Cup hero yet again a fortnight ago. Ten minutes from time, he scored the only goal of the game to ensure progression at the expense of Accrington Stanley.

Once again, on Saturday afternoon, he was the main man.

Derby are firmly in the hunt for a promotion spot and took on fellow hopefuls Hull City.

He scored once in either half to secure a vital three points, the first of which was his 100th senior goal.

In this kind of form, the fee Rangers received seems paltry.
