Rangers forward’s confession about Petrofac Cup


Martyn Waghorn has admitted that winning the Petrofac Cup would be a milestone in his career, given he has never picked up any silverware before.

The striker’s critical last-gasp header won the day on Saturday much to the delight of all and sundry, but looking ahead to Tuesday’s quarter final at Ibrox v Livingston, the 15-goal man conceded that while there were still three more matches to win, nailing the Petrofac Cup would be a special occasion.

He said:

“We want to go as far as we can in any Cup tournament and with it being the quarter-finals the boys will be putting it all in to go as far as we can.”

And added the importance to him personally as well:

“I have never won a trophy before in my career so I will be going out there to win and get us through to the next round.”

Football is of course all about winning, and the chief reason any player wants to play is success and trophies. With that absent from his career thus far, Waghorn would love to correct it in his first season at Ibrox.


  1. Yep, I suppose if you had never won silverware in your life then the Petrofac Cup would be as good a start as any.

    I think the day we are celebrating a Petrofac Cup win only serves to highlight how far we have fallen.

    Now if Waghorn had been so vocal about the League Cup I might have been slightly more enthused….before St J came along.

  2. Okay Mr negative!! Let's not forget how new a team we have and they are gelling together fantastic. We are going to get stronger and get more new players to strengthen certain areas.

    I for one after a few torturous seasons watching guff football can say I am enjoying football again. WATP

  3. Agree 100% we have to just keep rolling with the punches til we get there. A cup is a cup is a cup, I say talking of Punches hope Oduwa is ok. that was a disgrace last night
