Rangers legend Derek Johnstone feels Joe Garner is significantly contributing to the Gers’ recent good run, even though he is struggling to find the back of the net.
The striker, who joined Rangers from Preston North End in the summer, has thus far managed to score just three times in 19 appearances in all competitions for his new employers.
Garner’s last goal for Rangers came in their 3-0 win over Kilmarnock in a Scottish Premiership game in late October.
Mark Warburton’s team have managed to consolidate second spot in the table after winning their last three league outings.
Although Garner failed to score in those three games, he was a constant threat, with the 28-year-old even providing an assist during Rangers’ 2-1 win over Aberdeen earlier in the month.
And Johnstone explained that while the fans are not concerned about the goalscorers as long as Rangers wins, he thinks Garner will still be eager to get his name back on the scoresheet.
“The fans don’t mind who gets the goals, as long as Rangers are winning games”, he wrote in his column in the Evening Times.
“That is the most important thing right now.
“But Joe will want to contribute in terms of goals as well and I am sure that they will come for him.
“He had a couple of chances against Accies last Friday night and he was unlucky with the effort from the edge of the box that just went over the bar.
“As long as he keeps doing what he is doing for the team and getting himself into the right areas then his rewards will come.
“Joe may not be putting the ball in the back of the net but he is still playing his part and it is the team that is the most important thing. You go out there as a team, not as individuals.
“As long as Rangers are winning, the fans will have plenty to sing about.”
Rangers, who have 35 points from 18 games, will next take on Inverness CT on Saturday.
