Josh Windass posts Instagram verdict after cameo role in Rangers win v Aberdeen

By Will Butcher

Josh Windass is elated after putting his injury demons behind him to return to the Rangers first team, albeit from the substitutes’ bench in recent matches.

Windass, 23, came on for USA international Emerson Hyndman in the 53rd minute of the Gers’ superb 3-0 win away at second-placed Aberdeen on Sunday.

The former Accrington Stanley midfielder posted on his personal Instagram account that it is “great being back out there” as he played an important part in the Gers’ late onslaught.

Son of former Hull striker Dean, Windass has suffered with multiple hamstring problems as well as other knocks during his first season at Ibrox.

Former manager Mark Warburton attributed his problems to the demands of playing for the 54-time Scottish champions earlier this season, as games pile up north of the border.

Windass entered the game with the score still at 0-0, before veteran striker Kenny Miller scored a well-taken brace and Joe Dodoo rounded the win off.

The victory leaves Rangers third and nine points adrift of Derek McInnes’ Dons, as they look to close the gap with six league games remaining.

Windass could now be given his first start since December 31 against Partick at Ibrox on Saturday.
