Report: English manager visits Ibrox on personal transfer mission after bids for Rangers star rejected
Hull City are are interested in Rangers forward Josh Windass, according to a report.
The Daily Record, in its transfer blog (8.28am) has claimed that Hull manager Nigel Adkins was watching Windass on his trip to Ibrox this week as the Scottish giants beat Aberdeen 2-0.
The report goes on to say that Windass’ dad Dean was a Hull legend and that Adkins was hoping the family connections would tempt him to sign with the club.
The Daily Record also claims that Graeme Murty does not want to let the player go and has already rejected two £500,000 bids from Preston and Leeds.
Football Insider verdict:
It’s been a great transfer window for Murty so far and the Rangers manager has lined himself up as a decent option for the job permanently. If he can run with his new players for the second half of the season then he’s got a real shot at a job he would cherish. Windass might have had a mixed reception from Rangers fans in the past but he’s been a mainstay this season and has scored six goals and added six assists. Murty doesn’t want to lose him, the fans won’t want to lose him and a move to Hull probably wouldn’t be that tempting for Windass. Case closed.
