MARTYN WAGHORN is thrilled with Rangers’ signing of Jordan Rossiter and believes it to be a sign of the club’s intent as they strengthen for the Premiership next season.
Rossiter joined from Liverpool last week on a four-year deal, and having spoken to friends at the Merseyside club, he reckons the Light Blues may have unearthed a gem.
He explained: “The signing of the young boy Rossiter is another key one. He’s highly thought of at Liverpool and I spoke to a couple of the guys who are there and they couldn’t speak highly enough about him.
“The intention the club is showing is good, and when it comes to the squad, then the more the merrier as we need a good, competitive squad.
“It’s only going to bring the best out the rest of the boys who are here too.”
Waghorn will look to kick on again next season too in the Premiership having netted 28 goals so far this season – and with the Scottish Cup final to come on Saturday, he hopes there is still a chance of him breaking the 30-goal barrier.
A win in that game will also see Rangers in the Europa League next season, and he believes Europe to be a stage where Rangers are regularly plying their trade.
He added: “You never know what might happen on Saturday, but if I get one early enough on Saturday, then I’m on for it.
“As long as we get the win and the trophy, that’s the most important thing, but getting 30 goals would be nice.
“I came here to get promoted first and foremost, but to challenge for three trophies and potentially win a trophy is huge – as is what comes with that – qualifying for Europe.
“That’s massive and what dreams are made of. We are all determined to take that chance and get Rangers back to where they belong.”
