RANGERS have scored over seventy goals this season and the Light Blues fans were asked to cast their vote recently for the best of the campaign.
It’s been very hard to select just a handful from some of excellent strikes and team goals that the Light Blues have scored this season.
At the time of going to print, seventeen different players have scored this season, with 62% of strikes being scored in the first half of matches, 89% of them being from inside the box and 65% being scored at Ibrox.
The average time for a goal scored by the Light Blues this season has been in the 54th minute of matches, with 21% of the total goals scored being within the last ten minutes of games.
It’s a pretty even split in terms of which foot we’ve scored the most, with 53% scored by the right boot and we’ve had 13% of goals scored from a header.
Here’s the selection that the fans have had to choose from this season to find the best scored by the Gers this season.
THIS VOTE IS NOW CLOSED
JAMES TAVERNIER – KILMARNOCK
From a free-kick 30 yards from goal, Tavernier curled the ball up and over the wall into the postage stamp spot in the top right-hand corner of the net just beyond the reach of Killie keeper Jamie MacDonald, who managed to get a hand to ball as it flew in.
NIKO KRANJCAR – LINFIELD
Croatian midfielder Kranjcar created a moment of magic by himself against old friends Linfield, picking the ball up 25 yards out, side-stepping his marker and rifling the ball into the top left corner leaving goalkeeper Roy Carroll only able to watch it on the way back out of the net.
KENNY MILLER – INVERNESS CALEY THISTLE
For this strike, Kenny Miller acrobatically finished off a cross from Lee Wallace on the left with an excellent, cleanly struck, volley into net his 100th goal for Rangers. The finish left Inverness keeper Owain Fon Williams helpless as Miller’s volley flew into the back of the net.
JOE DODOO – PARTICK THISTLE
Dodoo expertly converted a looping pass from Kenny Miller to level the match in the 81st minute. The finish left Thistle keeper Thorsten Stuckmann helpless as Dodoo’s volley flew into the back of the net and brought Rangers back into the match.
MARTYN WAGHORN – HAMILTON
Martyn Waghorn expertly converted a Jason Holt cross with a high looping header from the edge of the box into the top corner which left the Hamilton keeper rooted to the spot.
EMERSON HYNDMAN – HEARTS
Grabbing his second goal for the Light Blues a week after bagging his first against Motherwell, Hyndman scored this excellent half volley. A James Tavernier corner from the right was sent into the box and parried clear by the keeper as far as the young American and he rifled home high into the net with his left foot.
CLINT HILL – CELTIC
A goal that probably doesn’t need a description as it’ll be remembered for a long time by the Gers fans watching worldwide. Trailing 1-0 to a goal scored by Stuart Armstrong, the Gers pushed forward and a low drive from Emerson Hyndman was parried by Craig Gordon. Clint Hill was live to the loose ball at the back post and hammered home before celebrating inside the goal with Kenny Miller.
KENNY MILLER – ABERDEEN
With just ten minutes remaining and the scores locked at 0-0 away to Aberdeen in the cauldron that is Pittodrie, Kenny Miller sprung to life and began a four minute salvo that led to a 3-0 win. Martyn Waghorn had a chance saved by Joe Lewis and Miller latched onto the loose ball and rattled high into the top corner from a tight angle.
