'Brilliant' - Josh Windass raves about Rangers senior man and impact he has had
Rangers attacker Josh Windass believes Gers boss Graeme Murty has helped him improve “a lot” since taking the reins at Ibrox in October.
Windass has scored 16 of his 17 goals this season since Murty replaced Pedro Caixinha in the hotseat and the 24-year-old thinks the Gers boss has been “brilliant.”
The former Accrington star only scored twice in the first 14 months of his Rangers career before bursting into life since October and drawing level with Alfredo Morelos as the club’s top goalscorer.
Windass admits Murty has given him lots of advice and the attacker thinks he has “done well” for the Gers boss.
“He [Murty] is brilliant,” Windass told Soccer AM, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
“He’s a really fun guy to have around and has helped me a lot.

“He’s given me a lot of advice and I’ve done well for him.”
Murty is in charge at Ibrox until the end of the season after originally taking the reins on an interim basis before being confirmed as manager until the summer on December 22nd.
The Gers boss had his side on the brink of launching a title challenge before the recent Old Firm clash but back-to-back defeats by Celtic and then Kilmarnock have killed off any dreams of winning the league this season.
Murty’s side also face a Scottish Cup semi-final with Celtic on April 15th at Hampden as the Gers look to end a seven-year wait for a major trophy.
Football Insider verdict:
There can be little doubting how good Murty has been for Windass since taking over. With two goals in 14 months at Rangers before hitting 16 since the end of October shows just how much of an impact Windass has had under the Gers boss. The pair seem to get on well too which will no doubt help Windass who looks very much like a player who needs to have an arm around his shoulder and manager who really values him to perform. If Murty can get him to be even more consistent then he has a top player on his hands.
