Rangers midfield ace makes Under-20s comeback
By Harvey Byrne
Josh Windass made his return from injury in the form of the Rangers Under-20s team on Tuesday evening.
The 23-year-old midfielder lined up for the youthful team against Hamilton’s Under-20s at New Douglas Park.
He has missed the Gers’ last two matches in the Premiership due to an injury, but fans will now be excited to see him back playing.
A Twitter account named ‘Battle Fever’ shared the SPFL Development League line-ups on Twitter, which contained the summer signing in the starting eleven.

Windass lasted just 45 minutes out on the pitch before being brought off for Ryan Hardie and he is understood to have performed quite badly against opposition he should be a level above.

However, his teammates weren’t too helpful either as they fell to a 1-0 defeat against Hamilton with veteran striker Kenny Miller in the dugout alongside Davie McCallum, with usual youth boss Graeme Murty currently in charge of the senior team.
Supporters will certainly be hoping that the poor display was a one-off from Windass as they attempt to find a solution for their recent poor form.
The summer signing from Accrington has had a stop-start first few months at Ibrox with just 18 matches to his name in all competitions and he will also be hoping to make his return soon.
