BBC pundit claims 'quality' Rangers player could fetch £30m (not Morelos)
BBC Sportsound pundit Tam McManus has claimed that Rangers hat-trick hero Josh Windass could fetch £30million if he was to move to China.
Windass starred in Rangers 5-3 win over Hamilton on Sunday and McManus made the claim later that evening on his personal Twitter page.
He said that Windass was ‘quality’ and doesn’t understand why he gets so much hate from the Rangers fans.
Windass is quality IMO. Don’t get the hate from sections of the Rangers support. At all. Could go to China for a set meal deal for two. 30m.

Windass recently signed a contract extension that will keep him at Ibrox until 2021 but he has come under criticism from Rangers fans.
It led to him doing a controversial goal celebration recently where he appeared to be shushing the Rangers fans.
There was no criticism on Sunday though, when the player scored his second career hat-trick to secure three points for his side and move them closer to Celtic at the top after their rivals could only draw 0-0 with St Johnstone.
Windass moved to Rangers from Accrington Stanley in 2016 on a free transfer and has made 57 appearances for Rangers, scoring 13 goals.
He’s come alive this season though, already scoring seven goals and adding eight assists in 24 Premiership games.
There’s no hint that he will be making a move to China although there’s still heavy speculation about the future of striker Alfredo Morelos, who is reportedly the subject of an £11m bid from China.
