Rangers set for big windfall from Martyn Waghorn sale

Rangers are set to earn up to £800,000 if Martyn Waghorn seals a move to Derby County, according to The Daily Record.

What’s the story?

Waghorn left Rangers last year after scoring 44 goals for the Scottish outfit and then moved to Ipswich where he enjoyed a successful season in the Championship, netting 16 times and registering 11 assists for the Tractor Boys.

The 28-year-old forward is now set to join Derby County in a deal which could amount to £8million and thanks to a crafty clause, Rangers will make ten per cent from the sale according to the report.

Happy days

Rangers surely wouldn’t have thought that Waghorn would sign for such a big fee only a year after moving from the Ibrox so this will be an added bonus for Steven Gerrard this transfer window.

Having spent a reported £6.19million so far this transfer window, the windfall from Waghorn’s sale will come as a welcome relief to Gerrard as he looks to complete one more deal.

Jake Cooper has long-been linked with a move to Rangers as Gerrard looks for a left-sided central defender, and Mark Beevers is the latest name touted as the new manager puts the finishing touches to his new squad.
