Rangers have clearly left a lasting impression on striker Martyn Waghorn as he refuses to take part in a huddle with new club Derby.
The popular move might be used by sports teams across the world, but in Scottish football, the huddle is the preserve of Old Firm rivals Celtic.
And Waghorn, who remains popular amongst Rangers fans, has clearly never forgotten it.

 


It’s not the first time someone associated with Rangers has refused to take part in the huddle with different teams.
Former Gers winger Barrie McKay and diehard bluenose Oli McBurnie both refused to take part in a huddle during their time at Swansea.
It’s not that Rangers don’t partake in huddles either.
The Ibrox club famously clinched the title at Parkhead following a 3-0 demolition of Celtic in 1999.
During the celebrations, the Rangers players formed a huddle at the side of the pitch, sending the Eastend stadium into meltdown.
It is one of the most iconic scenes in Rangers’ history and something you can bet will be recreated should the moment strike this season.

It’s funny – players are often berated for not joining in the huddle but are also criticised by our rivals when they do so.
They also don’t like us doing it very much either.
Waggy gets some extra staunch points from the Rangers faithful who will be wishing him all the best in an exciting new campaign with Derby.
