Martyn Waghorn has taken a thinly-veiled shot at Mark Warburton’s chop-and-change selection policy, suggesting it has been a contributor to the side’s poor form this season. Waghorn scored the winner in yesterday’s 2-1 Scottish Cup win over Morton and the 27-year-old felt the players have to move on from Warburton’s reign. Speaking after yesterday’s win he said: ‘You could say (the team have underperformed). It’s been a difficult one.
‘People don’t know if they are playing, they are in and out. There has been a lot of uncertainty at times.
‘But you are playing for a big club and people are not going to deliver that on a plate. You have to go out and work for it. Myself and other players have been in and out. But it’s important that you do your job when you are called upon.
‘It’s been difficult for a number of players and a number of reasons. But that is by-the-by now. It is time to move on.’
Waghorn has struggled to get a regular starting place this season after an injury-interrupted start to the season; making 12 starts and 12 sub appearances so far before being recalled to the starting XI under interim boss Graeme Murty.
