Rangers have rejected a £200,000 bid from Wigan Athletic for attacker John Windass, as exclusively revealed by Football Insider on Friday, with the Gers believed to be holding out for £2million for the former Accrington Stanley star.

The six-figure fee of £200,000 is a bit on the low side but if anyone at Ibrox seriously thinks someone – anyone – will pay £2million for Windass then they are going to be left looking utterly ridiculous.

Rangers must drop their asking fee and try to somehow manage to get half of that for the 23-year-old they should jump at it and offload senior player Windass back down south.

Despite the attacker’s recent patch of decent form, Windass has been a huge let down since moving to Ibrox with Matt Crooks in 2016 after their Accrington contracts expired.

Windass has made 50 appearances for the Gers and scored seven times with five of his seven goals coming since the end of October.

If Rangers can get £1million and use that to bring in a quality replacement then it would suit everyone down to the ground and would give the player a clean break and the club some more funds to spend in January.

What would perhaps suit even better would be a possible cash-plus-player deal if there is anyone at Wigan who Graeme Murty and Mark Allen feel would improve the Gers squad.
