Former Rangers star Barry Ferguson has said that the club should be slapping a price tag with at least seven figures for much wanted first team star Josh Windass this month.
The 24-year-old attacker has reportedly been attracting the attention of a host of clubs this month, with Leeds United said to be among those casting glances over the Light Blues’ first team star.
However, Ferguson insists that his performances this season have established him as a firm fixture among the senior squad and that rebuffing £500,000 approaches for his services is only right, suggesting a much bigger transfer fee in the region of £2-3million would be more befitting for a man of his talents.
He told the Daily Record: “There’s no question that the club is moving in the right direction again and, knocking back bids of £500,000 for Josh Windass is another indication of strength.
“Windass has emerged as a key player and it was down to me I wouldn’t entertain any offer for him unless it was somewhere between two and three million quid.
“There’s a lot for the fans to feel really positive about.”
Windass has appeared 24 times across all competitions this season, scoring six goals and chipping in with five assists in their league campaign, having missed just two top flight matches as a result of injury and suspension.
He has a total of 51 outings under his belt for the Gers since joining on a bargain deal from Accrington Stanley in the summer of 2016, arriving in a double swoop alongside Matt Crooks.
He will be hoping to continue his run in the first team under manager Graeme Murty, having established himself as a firm favourite under Pedro Caixinha’s replacement.
In other Rangers transfer news, Ferguson has questioned why the club allowed this attacker to slip through their fingers and join their rivals.
