Garner was Mark Warburton’s most expensive signing for a reputed £1.8m and was so proud to be presented to a full Ibrox crowd at half-time of the 2-1 win over Motherwell.

Warburton thought he was signing a fox in the box type and a livewire who will run in behind defences, and who was exceptionally good in the air while getting stuck in. Well he does get his retaliation in first (!)
