Francisco Sandaza has vowed to score plenty of goals after joining Rangers

Francisco Sandaza has promised Rangers fans he will do all he can to deliver plenty of goals this season.

The striker netted 18 times for St Johnstone last term and believes he will have even more opportunities in front of goal with the Ibrox side.

Sandaza refused to set himself any targets for his first campaign with the Light Blues but says he will relish the pressure to succeed at his new club. He said: "I know I will score goals. I cannot say a target but I'm sure I will do my best and try to score as many as I can. I promise sacrifice and hard work."

He added: "To play for Rangers, you will have more chances, more pressure. But I like the pressure and I'm sure I will score goals."

The Spaniard completed his move to Ibrox last week and sees no reason why Rangers cannot triumph in all competitions this season and claim a Scottish football quadruple.

The Glasgow giants are favourites to win the Irn-Bru Third Division - despite dropping points to Peterhead in last weekend's opener - after losing their status in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League when the club was consigned to liquidation.

Ally McCoist's men are set to face Falkirk in the second round of both the Ramsdens Cup and the Scottish Communities League Cup this month and will also compete in the William Hill Scottish Cup.

Despite the club being voted into the bottom tier of Scottish football, new recruit Sandaza is convinced the quality is still strong enough within the Rangers ranks to compete in all tournaments.

He said: "It must be our objective to win all the cups and go up to the Second Division. We have to live in the present and we are in this division just now but we must try to go up.

"That's why we are signing good players. We will go for it - that's for sure."
