IT’S not been Martyn Waghorn’s shooting boots which have been getting tongues wagging in America, it’s his thighs.

After pictures of the striker training in Charleston were posted online, social media went into meltdown over the Northerner who definitely doesn’t skip leg day.

Rangers TV decided to address the situation head on after Waghorn himself retweeted a comment claiming his left thigh was bigger than Scottish Football!

Smiling, Waghorn said:

“Yeah, well I think they are in good nick aren’t they?”

“I’ve not been especially working on them over the summer.

“I’ve always just been quite fortunate with my build as a power player – the sports scientists say that power equals speed.”

“Yes, I do roll up my shorts up every morning for training but that’s because the shorts weight a tonne!

“I do it just to let my legs breathe, and to get a bit of sun on them as well.”

We’re not sure we believe that excuse from last season’s 28 goal man but has he had any envious exchanges with his fellow Gers?

Waghorn said: “I like to think that I’m in good shape. I’ve not been getting any stick; I think they are all just a bit jealous.

“I think Wes would like to lend some of my thighs for his calves – that won’t go down well when he hears that.”
